If you haven’t been in downtown David for a while, there is a new treat I want to tell you about. It is a fresh fruit beverage location called Disfrutas Panama. It has been around since March, but yesterday was the first time I knew it was there.
It is owned and operated by a young entrepreneur named Joe Morales. This isn’t just your typical fruit drink place. Joe has created his own recipes and if you want a refreshing drink that will send your taste buds wanting for more, you should stop in.
It is located on 3rd street in the block past the church in Parque Cervantes. It is on the left side of the street, across from Electronica Hong Kong. Here is a Google Map to Disfruta’s location.
Here is a photo of the store front.
Here are a couple photos of the flavor choices. As you can see, there is something for everyone.
I tasted several and they were all special. If you are diabetic, there is something for you. If you have a hidden Popeye craving, then there are even some with spinach. There are some made with milk and some with just ice.
Sorry I didn’t take a photo of the serving size, but it is ample. You won’t be disappointed.
The young men behind the counter will take care of you with a smile and will communicate with you in English or Spanish. Therefore those of you that aren’t up to speed in Español need not worry.
I spent a little time talking to Joe, Karen (Joe’s girlfriend) and Joe’s mom, who is visiting from Ohio. I really like Joe’s attitude. He is providing a quality product at a reasonable price and is an asset to David.
Drop in, get a refreshing drink and go take a stroll through David’s beautiful park. When you finish your stroll, go back and get another drink for later.
If you do stop in, tell Joe you heard about Disfrutas Panama on Chiriquí Chatter.
I am attaching a scan of a card you get when you buy your drinks. I enlarged it so you can read it better.
With each purchase, they will stamp the back of the card. After you have purchased 8 drinks, you get one free. As you can see, I am 25% of the way to a free drink.
Maybe I will see you there. I plan on stopping in when ever I am downtown.
P.S. As a side note, Joe is planning to open a second smoothie around September 1. Stay tuned for more information.
