Nicaraguan Cuisine

If you've considered a visit to Nicaragua, or are contemplating a trip there, you may be wondering what their cuisine tastes like. After all, we all know of areas in the world where the cuisine seems daunting if not undeniably sickening. You can't just collect 14 days worth of microwave dinners and carry them on the plane. So what's it like? Here's a brief overview of the cuisines of Nicaragua.

First of all, Nicaragua's economy is increasing 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 nearly as many McDonald's restaurants as there are local restaurants. There are familiar café names if you're anxious about consuming Nicaraguan cuisine.

However, there's no reason to be fearful. The food of Nicaragua is a appetizing balance of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna principles which most people from the southern U.S. are by now familiar with, specifically nearby the Gulf of Mexico. The dishes are created from meats like beef, chicken, and seafood, so there are not many strange starter elements. To that, the natives combine include a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables grown right in the country, and season it with nearby grown herbs, roots, and spices. The real distinction is the method all of these elements are mixed together and served. You will be pleasantly surprised at how fresh and delicious the dishes are.

As far as sweets, 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 caramelized and formed into lengthy, glass-like strings. The second is a cake that has been saturated in cream, evaporated milk, and condensed milk. Both are superb if you desire to try something native.

As far as drinks, rum and beer are the alcohols of preference. It is easy to locate international types of beer if you don't feel at ease with the Nicaraguan native brews. Non-alcoholic drinks are made mainly of fresh fruits combined along with milk or yogurt. Comparable to numerous foreign countries, it's safest to not drink the water if you're not positive that it's purified. Likewise, be sure to order your beverages with no ice.
