Nicaraguan Cuisine

If you've planned a journey to Nicaragua, or are thinking of a vacation there, you may be wondering what their food tastes like. After all, we all know of areas in the world where the food seems daunting if not absolutely disgusting. You can't just take 14 days worth of microwave dinners and toss them on the plane. So what's it similar to? Here's a brief overview of the cuisines of Nicaragua.

First of all, Nicaragua's economy is growing well, and that brings overseas ventures. And with overseas ventures come the Americans, and their chains of fast-food restaurants. Within the capitol of Managua, there are nearly as many McDonald's eateries as there are local restaurants. There are well known restaurant names if you're uneasy regarding consuming Nicaraguan food.

Nevertheless, there's no cause to be fearful. The cuisine of Nicaragua is a flavorsome blend of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna cultures which nearly all individuals from the southern U.S. are previously familiar with, specifically nearby the Gulf of Mexico. The foods are made from meats like beef, chicken, and seafood, so there are not many bizarre starter ingredients. To that, the residents add an assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables grown right in the country side, and flavor it with locally grown herbs, roots, and spices. The main distinction is the way every one of these ingredients are mixed together and served. You will be nicely surprised at how fresh and delicious the dishes 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 browned and shaped into lengthy, glass-like threads. The second is a cake that has been drenched in cream, evaporated milk, and condensed milk. Both are exceptional if you desire to try 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 content with the Nicaraguan native brews. Non-alcoholic drinks are made primarily of fresh fruits blended with milk or yogurt. Similar to many foreign countries, it's safest to not drink the water if you're not positive that it's purified. Likewise, make sure to order your beverages with no ice.
