Nicaraguan Cuisine

If you've scheduled a trip to Nicaragua, or are contemplating a trip there, you might be curious as to what their food tastes like. After all, we all are acquainted with areas in the world where the food sounds daunting if not downright sickening. You can't just collect 14 days worth of microwave meals and toss them on the plane. So what's it similar to? Here's a short overview of the foods of Nicaragua.

First of all, Nicaragua's economy is growing nicely, and that brings foreign ventures. And with foreign ventures come the Americans, and their chains of fast-food eateries. In the capitol of Managua, there are just about as many McDonald's eateries as there are local eateries. There are well known restaurant names if you're anxious regarding consuming Nicaraguan food.

However, there's no reason to be fearful. The food of Nicaragua is a flavorsome balance of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna philosophies which most individuals from the southern U.S. are already acquainted with, specifically nearby the Gulf of Mexico. The dishes are made from meats like beef, chicken, and seafood, thus there are not many odd starter elements. To that, the residents add a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables grown right in the country, and flavor it with nearby grown herbs, roots, and spices. The main distinction is the method all of these elements are combined together and served. You will be nicely taken aback at how fresh and delicious the meals are.

As far as sweets, the two local preferences 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 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 want to try something local.

As far as drinks, rum and beer are the alcohols of choice. It is easy to find international types of beer if you don't feel at ease using the Nicaraguan local brews. Non-alcoholic drinks are composed mainly of fresh fruits mixed along with milk or yogurt. Similar to numerous foreign countries, it's safest to not ingest the water if you're not sure that it's purified. Also, be sure to order your drinks without ice.
