Food & Drink in Nicaragua

If you've scheduled a trip to Nicaragua, or are contemplating a trip there, you may be curious as to what their cuisine tastes like. In any case, we all are acquainted with areas in the world where the cuisine seems alarming if not downright appalling. You can't just collect 14 days worth of microwave dinners and throw them on the plane. So what's it like? Here's a short synopsis of the foods of Nicaragua.

To begin with, Nicaragua's financial system is increasing well, 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 nearly as many McDonald's restaurants as there are local restaurants. There are well known café names if you're anxious about eating Nicaraguan cuisine.

However, there's no need to be fearful. The food of Nicaragua is a flavorsome balance of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna principles which the majority of individuals from the southern U.S. are previously familiar with, especially around the Gulf of Mexico. The recipes are made from meats like beef, chicken, and seafood, therefore there are not many weird starter elements. To that, the locals add a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables cultivated right in the area, and flavor it with locally cultivated herbs, roots, and spices. The main difference is the way all of these elements are blended together and served. You will be pleasantly amazed at how fresh and appetizing the dishes are.

As far as desserts, the two native favorites are Cajeta de Coco and Tres Leches Cake. The first is a combination of yucca plant and coconut that has been caramelized and shaped into long, glass-like threads. The second is a cake that has been soaked in cream, evaporated milk, and condensed milk. Both are excellent if you aspire to taste something native.

As far as drinks, rum and beer are the alcohols of preference. It is simple to find international types of beer if you don't feel at ease using the Nicaraguan native brews. Non-alcoholic drinks are made mainly of fresh fruits combined together with milk or yogurt. Similar to many foreign countries, it's best to not drink the water if you're not sure that it's purified. Also, make sure to order your drinks without ice.
