Nicaraguan Cuisine

If you've organized a trip to Nicaragua, or are considering a trip there, you might be wondering what their food tastes like. In any case, we all know of areas in the world where the food seems scary if not downright appalling. You can't just carry 14 days worth of microwave dinners and toss them on the plane. So what's it like? Here's a short synopsis of the cuisines of Nicaragua.

First of all, Nicaragua's financial system is increasing well, and that brings foreign investment. And with foreign investment come the Americans, and their chains of fast-food cafes. Within the capitol of Managua, there are just about as many McDonald's eateries as there are local cafes. There are well known café names if you're anxious regarding having Nicaraguan food.

Nevertheless, there's no reason to be fearful. The food of Nicaragua is a tasty balance of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna principles which most people from the southern U.S. are already familiar with, specifically nearby the Gulf of Mexico. The recipes are created from meats like beef, chicken, and seafood, thus there are not many strange starter elements. To that, the residents combine include a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables produced right in the country side, and season it with locally produced herbs, roots, and spices. The real distinction is the way each of these elements are mixed together and served. You will be pleasantly amazed at how fresh and appetizing the dishes are.

As far as sweets, the two local favorites are Cajeta de Coco and Tres Leches Cake. The first is a combination of yucca plant and coconut that has been browned and fashioned into lengthy, glass-like strings. 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 native.

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