Food & Drink in Nicaragua

If you've organized a journey to Nicaragua, or are thinking of a trip there, you might be curious as to what their cuisine tastes like. In any case, we all know of places in the world where the cuisine sounds alarming if not undeniably disgusting. You can't just collect 14 days worth of microwave suppers and throw them on the airplane. So what's it close to? Here's a short summary of the foods of Nicaragua.

To begin with, Nicaragua's economy is increasing nicely, and that brings overseas ventures. And with overseas ventures come the Americans, and their chains of fast-food restaurants. Within the capitol of Managua, there are nearly as many McDonald's eateries as there are local restaurants. There are familiar café names if you're nervous regarding consuming Nicaraguan cuisine.

Nevertheless, there's no reason to be fearful. The cuisine of Nicaragua is a tasty balance of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna principles which most people from the southern U.S. are previously acquainted with, mainly nearby the Gulf of Mexico. The dishes are created from meats like beef, chicken, and seafood, so there are not many odd starter elements. To that, the residents add a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables cultivated right in the country side, and season it with locally cultivated herbs, roots, and spices. The real variation is the method every one of these elements 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 favorites are Cajeta de Coco and Tres Leches Cake. The first is a combination of yucca plant and coconut that has been browned and shaped into long, glass-like threads. The second is a cake that has been soaked in cream, evaporated milk, and condensed milk. Both are excellent if you want to taste something local.

As far as drinks, rum and beer are the alcohols of preference. It is simple to locate international styles of beer if you don't feel at ease using the Nicaraguan local brews. Non-alcoholic drinks are composed mainly of fresh fruits blended along with milk or yogurt. Similar to several foreign countries, it's best to not ingest the water if you're not sure that it's purified. Likewise, make sure to order your beverages without ice.
