Nicaraguan Cuisine

If you've organized a journey to Nicaragua, or are considering a vacation there, you may be wondering what their food tastes like. In any case, we all know of areas in the world where the food seems daunting if not absolutely repulsive. You can't just collect 14 days worth of microwave dinners and toss them on the plane. So what's it similar to? Here's a short summary of the cuisines of Nicaragua.

To begin with, Nicaragua's economy is increasing nicely, and that means overseas investment. And with overseas investment come the Americans, and their chains of fast-food restaurants. Within the capitol of Managua, there are just about as many McDonald's eateries as there are local restaurants. There are familiar bistro names if you're anxious about consuming Nicaraguan food.

However, there's no reason to be troubled. The cuisine of Nicaragua is a tasty balance of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna philosophies which nearly all people from the southern U.S. are already acquainted with, mainly nearby the Gulf of Mexico. The foods are made from meats like beef, chicken, and seafood, so there are not many odd starter ingredients. To that, the locals combine include an assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables grown right in the country side, and season it with nearby grown herbs, roots, and spices. The main difference is the way each of these ingredients are mixed together and served. You will be pleasantly surprised at how fresh and tasty 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 soaked in cream, evaporated milk, and condensed milk. Both are exceptional if you desire to taste something local.

As far as drinks, rum and beer are the alcohols of choice. It is effortless to locate international brands of beer if you don't feel at ease with the Nicaraguan local brews. Non-alcoholic drinks are made primarily of fresh fruits mixed along with milk or yogurt. Similar to numerous foreign countries, it's best to not ingest the water if you're not positive that it's purified. Also, make sure to order your beverages with no ice.
