Yambo is a Nicaraguan restaurant right by Calle Ocho that’s open 24-hours a day and has an interior that we’ll describe as, “hoarding cowboy carnival.” Outside, there are colorful statues of roosters, cows, and horses. Inside, every square inch of the place is covered in some sort of painting, trinket, or sculpture. The carne asada is what this place is known for - but there are plenty of other things that also taste good after a few drinks, like fried hunks of cheese, plantain empanadas, and flan.
