Carne Asada Tortilleria Nica is one of many Fritangas that can be found in Sweetwater. Sweetwater is the hub of the Nicaraguan community in South Florida and el Centro Comercial Managua where Carne Asada Tortilleria Nica Fritanga is located would probably be its White House. You can also find the very popular Raspados Loly in this same strip mall.
My wife is Nicaraguan and I was thrust into the world of their food over15 years ago. Before that I had limited exposure to it. The main thing that I find with some Fritangas is inconsistency. Sometimes I’ll go, have a great meal and the next time it’s just ok.
Carne Asada Tortilleria Nica is one of the most consistent and the best I’ve eaten. The Carne Asada’s (Steak) seasoning is just perfect and the Queso Frito (Fried Cheese) is fried just right. It had been a while since I had eaten here but I made it back on 2 consecutive days. Both were stellar and don’t forget the Tajadas (Plantain Chips) which I skipped on the first day.
P.S.: Please don’t hate me for having White Rice instead of Gallo Pinto this time.
