Found this place while walking through the centre of town. Seemed very busy and popular with most of the tables occupied. The waitress suggested the Vigoron and pork as well as the beans and rice. This is new food to me, so I have nothing to compare it with. the concept of Vigoron is fascinating but on a taste basis,... More

This place reminds me of the dirty kebab shop I get back home. We arrived today and after some light sight seeing fueled with many margaritas we thought we would check out a local dish, vigoron. I found this place through a blog and it seemed right up our street. For those of you who don't know what vigoron is... More

First time I went I had NACATAMAL for 90c. It was tiny. Then next time got CERDO (Pork) with the usual accompaniments for 100c. They only gave me 2 small nugget size pieces of pork. I thought they made a mistake. So i asked, and they said that that is normal. This place is rubbish. Think they don't respect tourists... More

It in the center and for that the prices are fair. The food was ok. It took quite a while until we could order. Once we manages that the food and drinks came fast.

I'd heard that I needed to try the vigorón here, and though I didn't know what it was and generally eat vegetarian, it was delicious. It's a huge piece of yuca root (think sweet potato but different) piled high with a slaw and with chichironnes (fried pork skins) on it. Simple, but delicious. Huuuuuuuge portions for very little money. Also,... More

If you want to try some of the street food of Nicaragua you can stop here. I had the Vigoron and it was yummy and filling! It's a great people watching spot in the Parque Central. You will probably be approached by vendors but they are typically respectful if you shake your head

This was my first taste of vigoron, and it was excellent. Quick friendly service despite my terrible Spanish, and a great place to watch the world go by in Granada. Wish I could stop by again soon.
