Food & Drink in Nicaragua

If you've organized a journey to Nicaragua, or are contemplating a trip there, you may be wondering what their food tastes like. After all, we all are familiar with spots in the world where the food appears alarming if not undeniably disgusting. You can't just collect 14 days worth of microwave meals and carry them on the plane. So what's it like? Here's a concise summary of the cuisines of Nicaragua.

First of all, Nicaragua's financial system is developing well, and that creates foreign ventures. And with foreign ventures come the Americans, and their chains of fast-food cafes. Within the capitol of Managua, there are almost as many McDonald's eateries as there are local cafes. There are familiar restaurant names if you're anxious about eating Nicaraguan food.

However, there's no need to be fearful. The cuisine of Nicaragua is a flavorsome blend of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna cultures which most people from the southern U.S. are by now familiar with, mainly around the Gulf of Mexico. The foods are made from meats like beef, chicken, and seafood, thus there are not many weird starter ingredients. To that, the residents combine include an assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables cultivated right in the country, and season it with locally cultivated herbs, roots, and spices. The real distinction is the method every one of these ingredients are blended together and served. You will be nicely amazed at how fresh and appetizing the dishes are.

As far as sweets, the two native preferences are Cajeta de Coco and Tres Leches Cake. The first is a mix of yucca plant and coconut that has been browned and designed into long, glass-like threads. The second is a cake that has been saturated in cream, evaporated milk, and condensed milk. Both are superb if you want to taste something local.

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