Nicaragua - People and places: El Eskimo

El Eskimo

Some places just know how to get it right, you know what I mean?  Well, it's official.  My favorite restaurante in Managua, Nicaragua is El Eskimo.  Sorry Restaurante Azul.  I haven't visited you as much as El Eskimo.  I will work on that in the future.

I've gone to eat at El Eskimo 4 or 5 times.  And this place just keeps growing on me.  They don't do anything wrong...let me explain.  

It's not the newest restaurant by far.  In fact, it's decor is probably from the 60's or early 70's, Managua's golden years.  However, the maintenance is impeccable.  Quality all around.  The bathrooms smell cleaner than a swimming pool (a pool early in the day, that is).  The waiters are very attentive.  The food is really excellent!  There is a mini salad bar that comes with your entree.  It's small but tasty and the dill dressing is too die for!  The fresh baked bread is soft and sweet, accentuated with the premium Eskimo butter on it.  The plates are simple.  I had garlic shrimp this time...I'm getting hungry just writing about them and that devilish butter garlic sauce they were swimming in.  I told you before that the churrasco is really good.  Well the shrimp are just as good.  Now I don't know what to order next time...probably will be eyeing the Italian shrimp....

To top it off, a waiter named Bayardo (an aquaintance) brought us over the clown sundae, courtesy of the house (or of him).  It came in good shape...but the eyes slid down as we talked.

1 to 10: I am going to give it a 10 cause it's my favorite!  All others will be judged by El Eskimos's time proven standards.
