Dish Spotlight: Vigorón in Nicaragua
It might require some legwork, but our contributor found that tracking down vigorón on the streets of Granada was well worth the scavenger hunt.

It was a sunny day, and the breeze off Lake Nicaragua floated past Granada’s colorful colonial houses. We were on the hunt for a specific dish, one whose name we’d heard murmured by Nicas everywhere: vigorón, Nicaragua’s favorite street food, which is said to have been invented here in Granada, the oldest colonial city in Central America. Where better to try a dish that pays homage to the country’s rural roots than in the shadow of centuries-old Spanish cathedrals? The more we asked, though, the more fingers pointed down the coast—a leisurely lakeside walk just outside the center of town. Colorful buggies and the clopping of horse hooves reminded us that there was a faster way to arrive at “the vigorón ladies,” but the breeze was so pleasant, and with each inquiry we learned something new about the dish.
