Nicaragua - People and places: Lunch at the market

Lunch at the market





I ate at Doña Julia's little lunch place on Wednesday, in the bowels of what was once the Managua Judicial complex.  She was offering grilled heart or chicken.  I opted for the chicken with rice, fried green plantains (tostones), salad and a Fanta roja (a Coca Cola version of the Nicaraguan staple 'Rojita' - a carbonated beverage that tastes like sweet, bubbly rose water.  This could set you back around C$40 plus C$10 for the drink.
