El Tayacán

A taste of traditional cooking

Those looking for an authentic experience of León should get to know El Tayacán, a restaurant that specialises in breakfasts and lunches, where famous quesillos, the trademark dish of this Nicaraguan department, are prepared. Located on the road between Managua to León, the price-quality ratio is cheap enough for any budget, which explains its popularity with locals. In addition to grilled meats, El Tayacán's menu offers León's culinary specialty, quesillo; this refers to a simply dish that is beloved by Nicaraguans – a tortilla wrapped in a piece of soft cheese, topped with onion in vinegar. Finally, add lots of cream and salt for taste. Sounds good, right?
