In Nicaragua, a fritanga is the name used for restaurants that make authentic home cooked Nicaraguan foods. The staple foods at a fritanga are Gallo Pinto (Rice and Beans), arroz blanco (white rice), carne asada (grilled meat), tajada frita (fried sliced green plaintain), platano frito (fried ripe plaintain), maduros (sweet plaintain), yuca, queso frito (fried cheese), tortilla and cabbage salad. Fritangas also carry speciality foods on given days such as: Salpicon, Ropa Vieja, Carne Desmenusada, Enchilladas, etc. and speciality drinks and desserts/pasteries. The fritangas have a cafeteria style of ordering where the food can be ordered and taken out or eaten at the establishment (comideria).
