Mahalo! food for body and soul

Casco Antiguo, Panama, Casco Viejo I learned a new word: Mahalo. In Hawaiian it means ” thanks, gratitude, admiration, praise, esteem, regards, or respects”.  Now we have our own Casco style “Mahalo”, located on A Avenue, next to UnderCover boots, right after 5th and A, by Madrigal. Yes, we do give a lot of landmarks, that´s how our system works! Last night´s soft opening had a really good vibe.

Just like a really busy restaurant in New York or something like that, La Michoacana has clearly become Casco´s new addiction, at the corner of B Avenue and 8th Street.
