Nicaraguan Cuisine

If you've planned a journey to Nicaragua, or are thinking of a trip there, you might be wondering what their food tastes like. In any case, we all are acquainted with places in the world where the food seems scary if not downright appalling. You can't just take 14 days worth of microwave suppers and toss them on the plane. So what's it like? Here's a brief synopsis of the foods of Nicaragua.

To start with, Nicaragua's wealth is growing well, and that means foreign investment. And with foreign investment come the Americans, and their chains of fast-food restaurants. Within the capitol of Managua, there are nearly as many McDonald's eateries as there are local restaurants. There are familiar café names if you're anxious about eating Nicaraguan food.

Nevertheless, there's no reason to be troubled. The cuisine of Nicaragua is a succulent balance of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna principles which the majority of people from the southern U.S. are already acquainted with, specifically in the vicinity of the Gulf of Mexico. The recipes are made from meats like beef, chicken, and seafood, so there are not many odd starter ingredients. To that, the residents add a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables grown right in the country, and season it with nearby grown herbs, roots, and spices. The main difference is the way every one of these ingredients are combined together and served. You will be genuinely taken aback at how fresh and delicious the meals are.

As far as sweets, the two regional preferences are Cajeta de Coco and Tres Leches Cake. The first is a combination of yucca plant and coconut that has been caramelized and fashioned into long, 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 taste something native.

As far as drinks, rum and beer are the alcohols of choice. It is easy to find international brands of beer if you don't feel at ease with the Nicaraguan native brews. Non-alcoholic drinks are created primarily of fresh fruits blended 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. Likewise, make sure to order your drinks without ice.
