Fonda Pritty Pritty

For a taste of the local comida tipica, which translates to typical food, Panamanian home cooking can be found at the neighborhood fonda, frequented by locals more than tourists. Come for delicious rice, plantains, and Panama’s signature sancocho.

Fonda Lo Que Hay

This affordable establishment translates to “whatever’s around,” and it is a pop-up fonda featuring comfort food from Panama’s famous chef, José Carles, of the award-winning restaurant Donde José. While the latter is far more formal, Fonda Lo Que Hay is a great place to bring kids as it is cozy and casual.
