Panama Ricuras de Colón Restaurant. The best way to know a destination is through its cuisine, and in the case of the province of Colon, this is a varied and unique style of cooking based on Caribbean flavors and often served with a ‘chombo’ sauce which is quite spicy. The most outstanding specialties are fried foods and seafood, accompanied with coconut rice, “patacones” ( crisp-fried plantain) with fried fish and snacks like “carimañolas” ( yucca dough with meat or chicken filling) sweet plantain and the famous “saus” (made with pork leg, onion, lemon, cucumber and spice).
Lovers of this cuisine no longer need to travel to the province of Colón to try some of these delights. “Ricuras de Colón” (Delights from Colon) is a new Caribbean food restaurant located in the lively bar and restaurant area on Calle Uruguay, Bella Vista.
The restaurant has a cozy ambience, ideal for family and casual dining. Their specialized menu offers dishes made with original ingredients from the province of Colon prepared by the experienced chef, Ingrid Perez, herself a Colon native.
