Seafood Lunch: San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

2.7.15

Saturday morning, Nancy and I walk into down town, San Juan del Sur, where we drop off 12.5 lbs. of laundry at Gabby’s Laundry, pickup tomorrow after 11:30 AM, will cost $9.35 USD and will be neatly folded, we are liking this having our laundry done by others!  After that we go to the Saturday market for fresh vegetables and to a local mini mart that has a surprisingly decent selection of wine.  We do all this and head back for home but not until we stop in at Comedor La Lancha (The Dining Boat) for a tasty, fresh, inexpensive seafood lunch.

Small and tucked away, just how we like it!

San Juan del Sur is a fishing village so there is a steady supply of sea bounty that comes in daily.  La Lancha is a new establishment this year and we have walked by it a few times and noticed it always smells good, so today it was time to try it. Nancy had Pesca a la Plancha and I had Aroz Camarones — we both had a glass of wine, the total with tip was $14.96 USD.  The meal was fabulous!  Fresh, generous portions and full of flavor. Put this one on the must eat at list if in SJDS, Nicaragua.

 

Nancy's filet, perfectly seasoned and cooked.  The plantain fries were yummy.

My shrimp with rice came with lots of tender, juicy shrimp and the same tasty fries.
