Saturday was my day for eating out. I was in in the Concepcion area at lunch time and the best place, that I know of in that area, is Sol de Mar. If you are on the Interamerican Highway, going toward Costa Rica, you will find Sol de Mar on the right side of the road, just as you leave Concepcion.
I have a hard time ordering anything other than the fried shrimp. I like the batter they use and I have always enjoyed my meal there. For $5.50 the shrimp plate is hard to beat.
Of course if you prefer fish the Pargo fillet (snapper) for $5.00 is another item I can recommend.
Then Saturday evening, I had an invitation to join some friends at the new Barnard’s restaurant. You will find this restaurant on the street that passes to the right of Romero’s in Dolegita heading toward the Iberia hotel.
There is dining inside.
There is also a nice covered terrace, if you prefer to sit outside.
Two in our party ordered a chicken salad and they enjoyed them. Another has an appetizer plate containing shrimp and it also was liked. I didn’t take photos, because I hate to drool while I am taking photos over people shoulders.
I had a cheeseburger.
I also couldn’t pass up a little of the flan de la casa. Yum. I had a scoop of chocolate ice cream placed on the side.
As you can see, I spent my Saturday eating and you got a two for one post about food. If you go to either of these restaurants, tell them you heard about them on Chiriquí Chatter.
