Traditional Nicaraguan Fare

Creole and Garifuna principles had been present in Nicaragua long before the Europeans arrived. Once the Spaniards got there, however, the cultures began to combine and so did their foods. As a consequence, the cuisine of Nicaragua is distinctive in taste and preparation, and positively wonderful.

By some customs, the foods of Nicaragua are strange if not uneatable. Turtle eggs and snake meat is typical on their menu. Plus, when it comes to beef products, they don't stop at just the meat. They use the blood, skin, brains, and most additional body parts in the making of some of their foods. But as appalling as it may seem, the food is flavorful, lively, and quite delicious.

The secret to their dishes seems to be in the not-so-secret elements they utilize. Corn is used in a good number of their recipes in some shape, and has existed from the time before the Europeans appeared. That, combined with unique herbs and flowers found nowhere else in the world, and fresh vegetables and fruits, generate exceptional appearing and tasting foods. True "Nicaraguan cuisine" is now a mixture of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna backgrounds, and the effect is a extremely exceptional flavor.

Don't turn up your nose at the food until you've tasted experienced it. Most people who have experienced the foods come away pleasantly surprised at how delicious and visually appealing their food is. The combination of Nicaraguan food and traditions blend perfectly.
