Chancho loco: Oye! Managua
​In Wednesday's Eat, SF Weekly food critic Jonathan Kauffman reviews three Nicaraguan places in the Outer Mission: Oye! Managua, Las Tinajas, and Adelita's Cakes. Get a jump on tomorrow's review later today at In the meantime, here's an excerpt (after the jump):

Oye! Managua is the in the middle of the Mission's Nicaraguan restaurant sector, which is by default the culinary center of Northern California's Nicoya community. San Jose, Oakland, and Redwood City have an isolated business or two, so in comparison, the five restaurants and two bakeries scattered along Mission between 19th Street and Highland Avenue constitute a dense restaurant row. Oye! Managua and Las Tinajas, generally considered the best of the bunch, serve food so homey, so hearty, that even your grandmother might find solace in cerdo asado and gallo pinto.
