Does Nicaragua have Fast Food?

If you've organized a journey to Nicaragua, or are contemplating a vacation there, you may be curious as to what their food tastes like. After all, we all are acquainted with areas in the world where the food seems scary if not absolutely disgusting. You can't just carry 14 days worth of microwave dinners and throw them on the airplane. So what's it like? Here's a short summary of the foods of Nicaragua.

To begin with, Nicaragua's wealth is growing well, and that means overseas ventures. And with overseas ventures come the Americans, and their chains of fast-food restaurants. Around the capitol of Managua, there are virtually as many McDonald's eateries as there are local restaurants. There are well known restaurant names if you're anxious about consuming Nicaraguan food.

Nevertheless, there's no reason to be afraid. The cuisine of Nicaragua is a flavorsome balance of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna cultures which most individuals from the southern U.S. are already familiar with, especially in the vicinity of the Gulf of Mexico. The foods are made from meats like beef, chicken, and seafood, so there are not many odd starter elements. To that, the natives add a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables cultivated right in the area, and season it with nearby cultivated herbs, roots, and spices. The main difference is the method all of these elements are mixed together and served. You will be nicely amazed at how fresh and appetizing the dishes are.

As far as desserts, the two native favorites 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 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 desire to try something local.

As far as drinks, rum and beer are the alcohols of preference. It is easy to find international types of beer if you don't feel comfortable using the Nicaraguan local brews. Non-alcoholic drinks are made chiefly of fresh fruits blended with milk or yogurt. Similar to many foreign countries, it's safest to not sip the water if you're not certain that it's purified. Likewise, be sure to order your drinks with no ice.
