Fritanga Cocina de Doña Angela

Gallo pinto can mean either spotted rooster or a perfectly mixed rice-and-bean concoction. If you want the former, you are out of luck. But nowhere prepares the Central American delicacy more deliciously than Fritanga Cocina de Doña Angela. This Nicaraguan restaurant will fill you up on side dishes, from gallo pinto to maduros to queso frito and curtido (a cabbage salad similar to cole slaw). But don't gorge yourself too early. Carne asada or carne desmenuzada also come with a generous heap of gallo pinto that will sate tu apetito. Chow down here for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
