Nicaragua - People and places: El Floridita

El Floridita

Oh my word!  I had the best lechón (spitted and roasted suckling pig) the other day in a Cuban restaurante called El Floridita.  I was at the Plaza Inter mall in Managua, Nicaragua and that's where I ate it.  The owner told me he has another restaurant in the Plaza de las Américas mall near Bello Horizonte, Managua.

The stuff was off the charts.  I paid C$120 for that plate of food with a Coke.  Looks like they have a great selection of Cuban food so I will be back!!!!  BTW, Nicaragua has a close relationship with Cuba, both historically and culturally.  There are remnants of Cuban's past influence in Nicaragua, particularly in a few good Cuban restaurants around town.
