Food & Drink in Nicaragua

If you've planned a journey to Nicaragua, or are contemplating a trip there, you may be curious as to what their cuisine tastes like. In spite of everything, we all know of areas in the world where the cuisine seems alarming if not downright repulsive. You can't just pack up 14 days worth of microwave dinners and toss them on the airplane. So what's it close to? Here's a short summary of the cuisines of Nicaragua.

First of all, Nicaragua's wealth is growing nicely, and that brings overseas investment. And with overseas investment come the Americans, and their chains of fast-food eateries. Around the capitol of Managua, there are almost as many McDonald's restaurants as there are local eateries. There are well known café names if you're anxious about consuming Nicaraguan cuisine.

Nevertheless, there's no reason to be fearful. The cuisine of Nicaragua is a flavorsome blend of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna cultures which nearly all people from the southern U.S. are already familiar with, specifically around the Gulf of Mexico. The dishes are created from meats like beef, chicken, and seafood, thus there are not many strange starter ingredients. To that, the locals combine include a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables grown right in the area, and season it with nearby grown herbs, roots, and spices. The real variation is the way all of these ingredients are blended together and served. You will be nicely amazed at how fresh and full of flavor the meals are.

As far as desserts, the two native preferences are Cajeta de Coco and Tres Leches Cake. The first is a mix of yucca plant and coconut that has been caramelized and fashioned into lengthy, glass-like strings. The second is a cake that has been soaked in cream, evaporated milk, and condensed milk. Both are excellent if you want to try something local.

As far as drinks, rum and beer are the alcohols of preference. It is simple to find international types of beer if you don't feel at ease using the Nicaraguan local brews. Non-alcoholic drinks are made mainly of fresh fruits combined with milk or yogurt. Similar to numerous foreign countries, it's best to not sip the water if you're not sure that it's purified. Likewise, make sure to order your drinks with no ice.
