Food & Drink in Nicaragua

If you've planned a journey to Nicaragua, or are thinking of a trip there, you might be wondering what their cuisine tastes like. After all, we all are acquainted with areas in the world where the cuisine seems daunting if not absolutely sickening. You can't just pack up 14 days worth of microwave suppers and throw them on the plane. So what's it like? Here's a brief summary of the cuisines of Nicaragua.

First of all, Nicaragua's financial system is increasing nicely, and that brings foreign ventures. And with foreign ventures come the Americans, and their chains of fast-food cafes. Around the capitol of Managua, there are almost as many McDonald's restaurants as there are local cafes. There are well known restaurant names if you're nervous regarding having Nicaraguan cuisine.

However, there's no need to be anxious. The food of Nicaragua is a tasty mixture of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna cultures which the majority of people from the southern U.S. are by now familiar with, specifically nearby the Gulf of Mexico. The dishes are made from meats like beef, chicken, and seafood, thus there are not many odd starter elements. To that, the residents combine include a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables cultivated right in the country side, and flavor it with locally cultivated herbs, roots, and spices. The main variation is the method each of these elements are mixed together and served. You will be pleasantly amazed at how fresh and tasty 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 threads. The second is a cake that has been saturated in cream, evaporated milk, and condensed milk. Both are superb if you want to taste something native.

As far as drinks, rum and beer are the alcohols of choice. It is simple to obtain international types of beer if you don't feel comfortable with the Nicaraguan native brews. Non-alcoholic drinks are made mainly of fresh fruits blended together with milk or yogurt. Similar to several foreign countries, it's safest to not drink the water if you're not sure that it's purified. Also, be sure to order your drinks without ice.
