( – Leon, Nicaragua

How I heard of this place: Our great friends, Chris and Marvelliz were getting married and this is where the family and friends would celebrate at the reception. It is also the location chosen by the couple for their visiting family and friends traveling from overseas to join the festivities.

Type of cuisine: Muted Nicaraguan fare.


Ambiance: The gates leading from the street to La Perla’s lobby are beautiful, grand and fills an air of extravagance. One may enter the restaurant directly, through one set of double doors from the main street, or through the doors off of the marbled patio, but we always seem to enter through the bar and into the ornate dining area. Red and white tiled floors lead up to white walls, which meet overhead at the varnished, dark, wooden boards making up the ceiling. A chandelier hangs down from the center, a couple of gold-framed paintings of food on the walls, and white-clothed tables all stuck together in the center of the establishment solely for our large party.

La Capital Menu

What I ordered: Without wanting to do extensive research on the menu, as the others in our large party had either ordered or were ready to place their orders, I elected to order the first thing I noticed: Chicken Fajitas (USD$7.50).

Chicken Fajitas

What I loved: Where the chicken and vegetables lagged in flavor and oomph, the mini dish of pico de gallo saved the day!

Why I loved it: Friends and family celebrating the union of two sweet individuals, gathered around one, large table to reminisce, laugh and break bread, all in honor of love, health and the pleasures of travel.

Cost: High (USD$7.50 – USD$13.50 per entree)
