Eating and drinking

Try
nacatamales
(cornflower dumplings stuffed with pork or chicken and vegetables, and boiled in banana leaves), an excellent value meal.
Gallo pinto
(rice and beans) is another tasty dish. Fizzy drinks are known as
gaseosas
in Nicaragua, as in neighbouring countries.
Fresh fruit-based drinks and juices are
frescos
. Coffee can be terrible as most good Nicaraguan
beans go for export and locals drink instant - ask for
café percolado
(filter coffee).
