V is for vigorón.
If you ever make it (specifically to Granada, Nicaragua) here, please eat the vigorón. It's fabulous and cheap and supposedly originated in our city. What is it? Basically it's boiled yucca as a base topped with chicharrones (pork rinds) and cabbage salad. It's honestly the perfect combo of soft and crunchy, the blandness of fried food with the bite of vinegar. Where's the best place to get it? If you go to Parque Central on any given day you can get a big plate of it served on a banana leaf WITH fresco for less than $3. Not bad, huh?
