Find Great Food In Leon, Nicaragua

In our new Globe Trotter series, Viral Travel reviews all the best places to see, eat, and stay at, in every country of the world!

This week we visit: The Nicaragua


Leon is a very special kind of city which is becoming Nicaragua’s favorite destination for many travelers. Its food scene is still quite hectic (like the city itself) and the eateries we would recommend are a mix of restaurants and local eateries often operating out of someone’s kitchen.

Asados Pelibuey is located at 2 Avenida Norte and it is a restaurant run by a women’s cooperative. It is also a place where you can get some of the best comida tipico in Leon. If you plan on eating your lunch there, make sure you come early as they tend to run out of food later.

Literally across from the previous restaurant is a place you go for burgers in Leon, Picharditos. They also do Mexican dishes quite well and they pride themselves on the coldest beers in the city.

Café La Rosita is another place to visit, especially if you are a fan of scrambled eggs that for some reason they overdo in Nicaragua. Of course, the breakfast will also include some white cheese, tortillas, maduros and gallo pinto.
