Yambo

"Manuelita" is the name (Does any EIT reader know its origin?) of this rolled, toothpicked half-pancake filled with sugar, cinnamon, and cheese ($1.50). The cheese seemed sweet, too, as do many Nicaraguan dishes that are ostensibly savory. Raisins are a common ingredient in this Central American cuisine; one stewlike dish on the steam table was strewn with them.

The decor is whimsical to the point of gaudiness, a sensibility that extends even to the menu. In explanation of one dish, a hearty chopped salad called salpicon, the menu reads simply "salmagundi."
