Nicaraguan Cuisine

If you've planned a journey to Nicaragua, or are contemplating a vacation there, you might be wondering what their cuisine tastes like. In any case, we all are acquainted with places in the world where the cuisine sounds daunting if not downright sickening. You can't just take 14 days worth of microwave meals and toss them on the airplane. So what's it similar to? Here's a short synopsis of the cuisines of Nicaragua.

To begin with, Nicaragua's economy is increasing nicely, and that brings overseas investment. And with overseas investment come the Americans, and their chains of fast-food restaurants. Around the capitol of Managua, there are almost as many McDonald's eateries as there are local restaurants. There are well known bistro names if you're worried about consuming Nicaraguan cuisine.

Nevertheless, there's no cause to be afraid. The cuisine of Nicaragua is a flavorsome balance of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna cultures which the majority of people from the southern U.S. are already acquainted with, mainly around the Gulf of Mexico. The foods are made from meats like beef, chicken, and seafood, thus there are not many odd starter ingredients. To that, the locals combine include a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables cultivated right in the country, and season it with nearby cultivated herbs, roots, and spices. The real distinction is the way each of these ingredients are blended together and served. You will be pleasantly surprised at how fresh and tasty the meals are.

As far as desserts, the two local favorites are Cajeta de Coco and Tres Leches Cake. The first is a mix of yucca plant and coconut that has been caramelized and shaped into long, 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 taste something native.

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 comfortable with the Nicaraguan native brews. Non-alcoholic drinks are composed chiefly of fresh fruits combined along with milk or yogurt. Similar to many foreign countries, it's best to not ingest the water if you're not positive that it's purified. Also, be sure to order your drinks with no ice.
