Food culture in Nicaragua
– Eat like a local –
Nicaraguan cuisine is simple, yet diverse. The Gallo Pinto is not just a mixture of rice and beans. Cooked in coconut milk, the rice gets a soft coconut aroma and makes the traditional food the perfect side dish for every dish.
Nicaragua’s national dish:
rice, beans, plantains and (of course) meat
There is no particular dining etiquette. The portions in Nicaragua are huge and very cheap. In Nicaragua, people like to take a piece of white cheese with their coffee. Don’t be surprised ;)
