I had noticed that a new Mexican restaurant was opening up. It is on the street behind Super99. Yesterday, I tried it out.
It was 1 PM when we arrived at the restaurant. The waitress came and told us about the comida del dia. I asked to see a menu. She said that if you wanted Mexican food, it would not be available until after 3PM. She did say that they could fix tacos if I wanted them.
She did bring a menu then so I could see what was offered if you came later. No photos as I only had my cell phone. However, the menu had steaks, burritos, enchilada, taco plates and margaritas for $2.75.
The Mexican food plates were all around $6.00. Two of us ordered a taco plate and one ordered a hamburger.
The restaurant is an open air, no AC, restaurant that does have a Mexican flair in its decoration.
I had enchiladas in my mind before I found out that they were not available until 3:00. A pitcher of water and three glasses were brought to the table. There was no ice in the pitcher or glasses.
Here is a photo of my taco plate.
The tortillas were cold and the meat inside had a hint of heat. The dab of re-fried beans were warm, but not hot. The flavor was alright.
I asked about the hamburger and was told that it was a typical Panamanian hamburger and a McDonald’s would have tasted better.
The total bill for two taco plates and a hamburger and fries was $16.70+. I may return to try the enchiladas some day, but my expectations are not all that high. All in all this was a disappointment.
