The restaurant speciality is "Quesillo's" with natural drinks, which are quite delicious in their own rite but the level of mosquitos, counter produces Guiliguiste's fast food (quesillo's).

No trip to Nicaragua is complete without stopping at a roadside stand selling quesillo, which is cheese, chopped tomato and onion, wrapped in a tortilla and drizzled (lots) with natilla (I don't know the Nica word for this so I use the Costa Rica term).

I think if you look for the best "quesillos" in Nicaragua, you should try here. Fresh corn tortilla will make a big difference!

Si viajas entre León y Managua, esta es una parada obligatoria para desayunarse un delicioso quesillo tipico Nicaragüense o bien como un entremés de media mañana

park the truck, The rancho is vibrating with action. Huge mounds of different cookies on either side, a vendor musically selling cds, and at the back you see the outlines of three ladies feverishly preparing the famous quesillos, a tortilla with fresh local cheese in a creamy onion dressing poured into the tortilla, served with fresco de cacao. The owner... More
