Capital Bistro Panama opens in Casco Viejo

Panama Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo Last night we enjoyed a fantastic sunset at the roof terrace of Capital Bistro Panama, the new restaurant in Casco Viejo, and the only one directly off Plaza V Centenario. What a killer position! Views of modern Panama City and Casco Viejo. Modern decor inside, they seem to be leaning towards tapas. My best picks so far have been the “Mero” and the “Robalo” (Snook).  They also have a beautiful chocolat fondant!

Love Chocolate? Love Casco Viejo!

Panama Casco Antiguo, Casco Viejo Yesterday we passed by Casa Sucre, the coffee shop at B Avenue and 8th street and was very, very impressed with their chocolate cake.  What a beauty! To kind of justify the calories, we ordered a mango & spices tea. Fantastic combination! Fully recommended. And speaking of chocolate and tea, Espacio Karuna at Los Del Patio have started to do “Chocolate, tea and yoga” events more often. Here is the info!

Casco Viejo, Panama After being away for a while on vacation, we just came back to a good number of new stuff going on!

Veggie Moon: new restaurant in Casco Viejo

Panama, Casco Viejo First Street welcomed last week Veggie Moon, Casco Viejo`s first elegant gourmet fish/vegetarian restaurant. Now, before we start mixing labels! I know that trying to pin down this can be tricky.  Let`s clarify something right away: this is not a 100% vegetarian place. Here you will find fish and seafood, and they took care of showing the kitchen so that customers could see that they are being prepared in different areas with the utmost care. I ordered a beautiful lentil soup (made with rosemary) and a eggplant agnoloti. Claudia, the owner, is Venezuelan- Italian, and the chef … Continue reading

Las Clementinas Reviewed at La Prensa

Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo, Panama Real Estate at Casco Viejo Aristologa is one of Panama`s toughest restaurant reviewers.  Of course, that is not her real name, as she finds anonymity useful when walking to a restaurant (although I`ll tell you, it is quite difficult to keep secrets in such a small country!!). Last week, Las Clementinas Café  at Casco Viejo (Panama) passed her difficult test.  She loved the coconut milk soup and the sea bass, probably my two favorite dishes.  She liked the hamburger, but thought the cheese was a bit lost in the combination that includes caramelized onions. I … Continue reading

Photos From Last Night`s Art Block at Casco Viejo, Panama

As always, it was quite fun to see the Casco invaded by art and young souls. Here are some shots from last night`s Art Block at Casco Viejo! The night started at Clementinas at their panoramic roof terrace,  but then moved to Plaza Herrera with street dancing in front of Mojitos.  Flamenco dancing at Super G, great jazz at DiVino and DJ`s at La Vecindad and throughout Calle 4ta.  Circus trees walking around to give the surreal touch to the evening. Calle 4ta towards Papiro y Yo had the best “ecological boquitas”, yummy appetizers by chef Joanna and Catriona.   … Continue reading

Save the oceans: eat Lion Fish at Clementinas

Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo, Panama Real Estate and Lifestyle at Panama´s Historic District   Lion Fish is defined by Wikipedia as a venomous marine fish (called Pterois).  A couple of years ago, this plague got into our side of the world by mistake and having no natural predators, this lion looking fish has dedicated itself to “la dolce vita”, eating all sorts of native species and wiping our tropical reefs. Unfortunately, it is now in Panama, and we had the opportunity to see it in San Blas, floating around, looking quite innocent to say the least! However, very few know … Continue reading
