Nicaragua Food and Drink
Restaurants, particularly in Managua, serve a variety of cooking styles including Chinese, French, Italian, Latin American and Spanish.
• Gallopinto (fried rice and pinto beans).
• Mondongo (tripe soup).
• Picadillo (shredded beef dish).
• Ajiaco (pork and tortilla dish).
• Rosquillas (a type of cheese and cornmeal biscuit).
There are a number of cheap but good restaurants/bars (coreders) where beer, often the cheap local brand, is available. At the other end of the scale, the 4- and 5-star hotels have sophisticated restaurant/bars with a choice of international cuisine and beverages.
