Nicaraguan Cuisine

If you've organized a trip to Nicaragua, or are thinking of a trip there, you may be wondering what their cuisine tastes like. In any case, we all are familiar with places in the world where the cuisine seems daunting if not absolutely repulsive. You can't just collect 14 days worth of microwave meals and toss them on the airplane. So what's it like? Here's a short summary of the foods of Nicaragua.

First of all, Nicaragua's wealth is developing nicely, and that means overseas ventures. And with overseas ventures come the Americans, and their chains of fast-food restaurants. In the capitol of Managua, there are virtually as many McDonald's restaurants as there are local restaurants. There are household café names if you're uneasy about eating Nicaraguan cuisine.

However, there's no reason to be anxious. The food of Nicaragua is a appetizing mixture of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna principles which most individuals from the southern U.S. are by now acquainted with, especially around the Gulf of Mexico. The dishes are created from meats like beef, chicken, and seafood, thus there are not many odd starter elements. To that, the residents add a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables cultivated right in the area, and flavor 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 taken aback at how fresh and delicious the meals are.

As far as desserts, the two native preferences are Cajeta de Coco and Tres Leches Cake. The first is a combination of yucca plant and coconut that has been caramelized and designed into long, glass-like threads. The second is a cake that has been saturated 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 choice. It is simple to obtain international brands of beer if you don't feel content using the Nicaraguan local brews. Non-alcoholic drinks are created mainly of fresh fruits blended with milk or yogurt. Like several foreign countries, it's best to not ingest the water if you're not positive that it's purified. Likewise, be sure to order your drinks with no ice.
