I received the following email from a Chiriquí Chatter reader. Looks like I am going to have to find a reason to drive to Bugaba.
The Steak House Restaurant is now operated by Jose,Olga and Pepe Manuel and called the Restaurant Azteca, specializing in Mexican food. Olga is of Mexican heritage and makes her own salsas and other items in the kitchen, much of it organically grown on their farm. Prices range from $3.00 for an order of 3 quesadillas to $8.00 for a fillet with vegetables and potatoes.
They also serve breakfast in the $4.00 range, Spanish ommlet, pork chop, toast (yes toast) and coffee.
The prices below are from memory;
National beer….75 cents
Imported Mexican beer…$1.75
Margarita with Cuervo Reserve and Olga’s home made juice…$2.50 (KILLER)
Garlic shrimp meal…$5.00
Many other things on the menu!!!
They have a menu both in Spanish and English.
Jose and Pepe speak English, maybe Olga as well but she was doing “woman’s work” preparing salsas and her secret Margarita mix, did I mention it is KILLLER?
Hours of operation from 8:00am to 11:00pm 7 days a week.
For those of you coming from David, turn right as if you were coming to Volcan, 1.7 km on your left, in front of Bugabeno Country Club. Ample parking is available in the open field just to the North of the restaurant.
The restaurant is well worth the trip or the stop if you are going to or coming from David. Did I mention the margarita is KILLER !!!!!
Ask Jose to show you his photographs of Bamboo construction he has worked on, especially if you need another house, I think you will find it amazing!!!
