It's a hopping, bopping, most colorful Nicaraguan joint in a funky neighborhood. Yambo offers one of those "out-of-country" experiences that alone is worth the price of admission. Outdoors are tables and scads of Nicaraguan knickknacks. There's so much going on visually that you hardly notice the phone booth, CD jukebox, kiddie horse ride, and gumball dispensers (this isn't so much a restaurant as a very tiny village). Then there's the food counter flanked by juice stands that also sell sodas, wines, beers, and espressos. Main courses include tacos de pollo, crackly fried corn tortillas rolled around savory ground chicken; fried knish-like potato balls brimming with chayote and cheese (pescazones); well-seasoned wedges of grilled pork (puerca asada); beefsteak stewed in light tomato sauce with sautéed onions; and fried whole snapper. All come with shredded cabbage as well as various couplings of rice, red beans, plantains, yuca, and so forth. You can also dine at Salon Cacique Nicarao, the name given Yambo's cozy indoor restaurant, with table service and translated menus of the same food served outside. The outdoor area is open 24/7. What else can you ask for?
