An appetizer that you’ll find on the menu at almost every Nicaraguan restaurant is tostones con queso.

What I Ate Today: Tostones con Queso

This simple snack of fried plantains topped with a cube of deep fried cheese is often served with chilero (a mixture of pickled onions, carrots and hot peppers). Although tostones con queso is popular with locals, travelers and expats alike, I’m really not a fan. Typically I’d take ceviche over tostones con queso any day, however I did quite enjoy this particular version of the dish at O’Shea’s here in San Juan del Sur. The salty cheese was a nice compliment to the frosty Toñas we were enjoying poolside.
