the nicaragua

about to head off on a long jungle trek with no provisions? or maybe you're looking at the ass-end of a fourteen hour day of uber heavy manual labor? or maybe you just want a leaden, siesta-inducing feed. if so, the nicaragua restaurant may have something to soothe your hungry, calloused soul.


located on mission street just before cesar chavez, the nicaragua has little to distinguish itself from all the other little central american and mexican joints that run up and down mission street. a little boxy room, plastic sheeting over flowery tablecloths straight from your granma's double wide trailer, little paper mache fruits dangling from the ceiling...this is no fancy-pants kinda place. and since these pants ain't so fancy these days i feel quite at home.


if you are a vegetarian, what you will find here are giant plates of deep fry. everything is deep fried. gorgeous thick slabs of plantain. fried. brick-sized rectangles of a queso freso type cheese. deep fried. rice and beans, a little fried.


if meat is more your thing, you will get all the coronary-inducing vegetarian deep fry delights plus giant hunks of pork in a spicy sauce.

the food is by no means gourmet and certainly not subtle, but for about nine bucks per person you will get enough calories to fuel you through that long jungle trek.

ust like many other parts of Nicaraguan society, bet basketball Nicaraguan food is a blend of clashing cultures. The people living in the region before the arrival of the Europeans utilized locally available foods, such as sportsbook fish along the shorelines, wild pecari in the dense forests and of course the emblematic maize produced in arable parts of the landscape. When the Europeans arrived they brought many American products back to Europe, such as cacao and vanilla, march madness but they also introduced a wide range of Old World crops to Central America, including important staples like plantain, yam and wheat.
