Food & Drink in Nicaragua

If you've organized a journey to Nicaragua, or are contemplating a retreat there, you may be wondering what their cuisine tastes like. In any case, we all are acquainted with areas in the world where the cuisine sounds daunting if not absolutely repulsive. You can't just take 14 days worth of microwave meals and carry them on the aircraft. So what's it similar to? Here's a short summary of the foods of Nicaragua.

First of all, Nicaragua's economy is developing nicely, and that brings foreign investment. And with foreign investment come the Americans, and their chains of fast-food eateries. In the capitol of Managua, there are virtually as many McDonald's eateries as there are local eateries. There are familiar restaurant names if you're anxious regarding eating Nicaraguan cuisine.

However, there's no reason to be fearful. The food of Nicaragua is a flavorsome blend of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna cultures which nearly all people from the southern U.S. are previously familiar with, especially nearby the Gulf of Mexico. The foods are made from meats like beef, chicken, and seafood, thus there are not many weird starter elements. To that, the residents add a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables cultivated right in the country, and season it with locally cultivated herbs, roots, and spices. The main difference is the way all of these elements are blended together and served. You will be pleasantly surprised at how fresh and delicious the meals are.

As far as sweets, the two local favorites are Cajeta de Coco and Tres Leches Cake. The first is a combination of yucca plant and coconut that has been caramelized and shaped into long, glass-like strings. The second is a cake that has been drenched in cream, evaporated milk, and condensed milk. Both are superb if you desire to try something native.

As far as drinks, rum and beer are the alcohols of preference. It is easy to find international brands of beer if you don't feel at ease using the Nicaraguan native brews. Non-alcoholic drinks are created mainly of fresh fruits blended with milk or yogurt. Like numerous foreign countries, it's safest to not ingest the water if you're not certain that it's purified. Likewise, make sure to order your drinks with no ice.
