a local Comedor

(No website found at time of publishing) – Parque Las Palmas, Managua, Nicaragua

How I heard of this place: We walked less than a block away from our hotel, came upon a sandwich board toating Comedor in front of a stand-alone tin-roofed shack with a handful of tables inside. We made our way in.

Type of cuisine: Local, Nicaraguan home-cooked meals.

Ambiance: Set at the edge of Parque Las Palmas, this dark spot is home to locals enjoying conversation while eating something prepared by mom. The tin roof overhead, plastic seats and mismatched, randomly-labeled jars of homemade pickled goods makes you feel like you’re visiting a friend in the local villages. Hanging on the wall, directly ahead of the doorway from which we entered, is a white board menu with limited options. When we were ready to order, our options were even more limited: chicken or beef.

What I ordered: Chris and I ordered one of each: chicken and beef (C$45 per plate). Our plates came out, piled high with rice, beans, a tomato-based curry, of sorts, with chicken/beef and vegetables, topped high with dried/fried plantain strips. A glass of limonada is included in the price.

What I loved: The plantain chips, the sauce for the chicken and the always-flavorful beans!

Why I loved it: I tend to gravitate towards the mom and pop shops and am always a fan of supporting the local establishments. These comedors are a step above, and serve very true, real, homemade food to boot!

Cost: Low (C$45 per plate)
