My neighborhood is becoming a location for dining out within walking distance from where I live. Friday nights from 6:00 PM until 10 – 10:30, you can have a great time eating Mexican food. The menu is different every Friday. That should keep me coming back for some time.
To get to the restaurant, you turn onto the road in front of the El Rey super market from the InterAmerican highway. Then turn right at the third intersection. On the next corner (on the right) is a very nice house and the patio is where this delightful food is served.
Typical for me, I arrived early. I didn’t want to take a chance on any of the items on the menu might be missing.
The patio makes a peaceful setting to enjoy a good meal. Here is a photo of the area. The lady on the right is Martha, the lady who is sharing her beautiful house and food with you.
Here is a photo of an atrium area that also has a table you may use. The running fountain created soothing sounds to assist you in relaxing.
Here is the menu for last Friday.
This is Mexican food, not to be confused with TexMex. There were four of us at the table, so I was able to get photos of all of the main course as well as the dessert.
There was plenty of items that accompanied the meals. I tried a little of all of it. The guacamole was unique. It had cucumber in it and that was a first for me.
Two of us had the nachos. They are advertised as being for two and I can tell you that both of us were satisfied with the amount we had to eat. I also enjoyed the flavor.
Another had the flautas and said they were very good.
The last person had the pozole. She raved about the flavor.
Of course, I also had to try the brownies and ice cream. What a great way to top off a meal!
There was music playing in the background and it could not have been a more pleasant evening. I assure you I will return to sample more items on another day.
As we ate and talked and visited with other neighbors, you could hear this chattering in the trees that were in the yard. This is the same music that wake up to on many mornings. We watched the trees and it was amazing. It was filled with hundreds of the local green parrots that Panama is famous for. As I watched, you could see the tree shimmer with its inhabitants as others flew to or departed from the tree. I finally decided to take a short video and share it with you.
Remember, Matha shares her hospitality and great food with those that want to come every Friday from 6:00 PM to around 10:30 PM. If you stop by, tell Martha that Chiriquí Chatter informed you about her wonderful food.
