Fondas in Panamá are the undisputed favorte gathering place for most construction workers and taxi drivers.  It’s their water hole to calm their hunger and thirst.  You can buy a generous portion of white rice, fried green plantains, red beans, a  cabbage and tomatoes salad, fried chicken and a Coke or chicha for approximately $2.00.  Fondas are scattered all over the city, specially near construction sites.  Good Day.
