Nicaraguan Cuisine

If you've considered a excursion to Nicaragua, or are contemplating a vacation there, you may be curious as to what their cuisine tastes like. After all, we all know of places in the world where the cuisine appears daunting if not downright repulsive. You can't just carry 14 days worth of microwave meals and toss them on the plane. So what's it similar to? Here's a brief overview of the cuisines of Nicaragua.

First of all, Nicaragua's financial system is developing nicely, and that means foreign investment. And with foreign investment come the Americans, and their chains of fast-food restaurants. In the capitol of Managua, there are nearly as many McDonald's eateries as there are local restaurants. There are familiar bistro names if you're nervous about eating Nicaraguan cuisine.

However, there's no reason to be fearful. The food of Nicaragua is a appetizing balance of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna cultures which nearly all people from the southern U.S. are by now acquainted with, especially nearby the Gulf of Mexico. The dishes 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 grown right in the country, and flavor it with nearby grown herbs, roots, and spices. The real variation is the method every one of these elements are combined together and served. You will be nicely taken aback at how fresh and tasty the dishes are.

As far as sweets, the two regional favorites are Cajeta de Coco and Tres Leches Cake. The first is a mix of yucca plant and coconut that has been browned and shaped into long, glass-like strings. The second is a cake that has been soaked in cream, evaporated milk, and condensed milk. Both are exceptional if you aspire to taste something local.

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 using the Nicaraguan local brews. Non-alcoholic drinks are made mainly of fresh fruits blended together with milk or yogurt. Like several foreign countries, it's best to not sip the water if you're not positive that it's purified. Likewise, be sure to order your cocktails with no ice.
