Food & Drink in Nicaragua

If you've planned a excursion to Nicaragua, or are thinking of a vacation there, you might be wondering what their cuisine tastes like. After all, we all know of areas in the world where the cuisine sounds scary if not positively disgusting. You can't just pack up 14 days worth of microwave suppers and toss them on the plane. So what's it similar to? Here's a short overview of the cuisines of Nicaragua.

First of all, Nicaragua's financial system is increasing nicely, and that brings foreign investment. And with foreign investment come the Americans, and their chains of fast-food eateries. Within the capitol of Managua, there are just about as many McDonald's restaurants as there are local eateries. There are familiar bistro names if you're nervous regarding eating Nicaraguan cuisine.

Nevertheless, there's no reason to be fearful. The cuisine of Nicaragua is a flavorsome mixture of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna principles which the majority of people from the southern U.S. are already familiar with, specifically around the Gulf of Mexico. The dishes are created from meats like beef, chicken, and seafood, thus there are not many odd starter ingredients. To that, the locals add a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables grown right in the area, and flavor it with locally grown herbs, roots, and spices. The real distinction is the way every one of these ingredients are combined together and served. You will be genuinely surprised at how fresh and tasty the dishes are.

As far as sweets, the two regional favorites 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 exceptional if you aspire to try something native.

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