“Simple, Authentic BYO with Excellent Food at Great Prices”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

My friend and I were checking out a few of the touristy places on the Main Street when we stumbled upon this place (though I thought it was Gran Sabor, but the locatoon is def correct--D off 3rd). We liked that it was a small, family-run place where you could watch the daughter making the food while hr mother oversaw the kitchen. The menu is written on the wall in chalk and choices include a meat, fish or poultry with the option of a few sauces (curry, garlic which I recommend, brown sauce) and it comes with rice, beans and platanos. It was delicious and super cheap. I highly recommend this spot for those who want authentic Panamaian cuisine and like being surrounded by locals.
