I had breakfast at McDonald’s this morning. I think Chicken McNuggets will be fresh today.
I received a request to post the following.

I have been spending mornings in front of International Hotel Suites in David.
10:30 AM is a little early for a mojito, but to test my theory I ordered one. Now mint for a mojito doesn’t get any fresher than this. Picked right beside the outdoor table I was sitting at.
Mighty tasty. Not sure it helped my writing, but my outlook on life was a little more frisky afterwards.
If you drop into Mojitos, tell them you read about them on Chiriquí Chatter.
When Heather was here, we made a trip up to Volcan and Cerro Punta. Before leaving we stopped into Mana Deli & Coffee Shop which used to be Daly’s. This is a second location owned by Jorge and Vicki of Volcan Lodge.
We all had coffee and it was exceptional. It was a local coffee, but I didn’t get the name. I also ordered a piece of apple pie and it is probable the best piece of apple pie I have had in Panama. I was impressed to find out that Nicole was the artist of the pastries. I must compliment her the next time I see her.
Here are photos of the menu.
The only think I missed on this trip was getting to visit with Vicki and Jorge. Next time I will make sure they are in town.
Apparently this Peruvian restaurant has been here a few years, but it was just last month that a friend of mine took me there. While I didn’t take a photo of the menu, I thought all prices were reasonable.
Here are couple photos taken out front and one on the inside. Use this Google map to find the restaurant.
Everyone enjoyed their meals. One thing I didn’t try was a Pisco Sour. An error on my part.
It is also on my list of restaurants to return to. If you drop in, tell them you learned about them on Chiriquí Chatter. An album of all dishes tried follows. Eat your hearts out, or better yet, drop in and eat your fill. By the way, I enjoyed my fried ice cream for dessert (the last photos).
The last day that Heather was here, we showed her around Boquete. We stopped at Casona Del Cusco for lunch. It was new to me, but I understand it has been open for around 10 months.
I have to say I was very impressed. It was new, fresh, nicely decorated, but more important I thought the food was exceptionally good and priced well.
It is easy to find because you just follow the signs to Valle Escondido. On the next to the last turn before Valle Escondido, you will see the restaurant.
Natalie and Heather had a Pisco Sour. I passed, since I was acting as chauffeur.
I didn’t take a photo of the menu, but the prices were very fair. Following are photos of the four plates we ordered. Mine was the most expensive as it was loaded with seafood. If I remember right it was around $12. the others were less.
Everyone spoke highly of their meal. I will go there again.
We have stopped into Pizza Hut for their weekday special a couple times recently.
For $5 you get your choice of several personal sized pizzas, some garlic bread, a salad or a soup and a tea or soda.
Really a good bargain. I usually go for a combination pizza and potato soup. I will add that this is the best potato soup in David. Nice chunks of potato, plenty of bacon and cheese. Today’s order follows.
I receive the following request to post.
