Usually we don’t go out to eat. We prefer to stay home and enjoy the domestic meals prepared by my wife, Aura. Last Sunday we decided to break the routine and decided to eat a Spanish dish called “Paella a la Valenciana” at a restaurant close to home called, “Los Toneles” (The Barrels). The name of the business is because there are two wooden barrels at the entrance of the venue as you will later see in a photograph I shot of the place.
This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who had been there and enjoyed a delicious Italian dinner. We decided to give it a try with a typical Spanish dish—the Valenciana paella.
Below are several pictures of our visit to Los Toneles. It was a most enjoyable experience with a charming old woman as our waitress. Here we go.
The entire meal consisted of seafood soup, white wine, paella a la Valenciana, creamy caramel flan with a cherry on top, and a cup of Chinese tea to help the digesting process. Yummy-yum-yum.
Panama, being a crossroad of the world, is famous for its international cuisine. If you ever visit our country, I encourage you to go out and have a bite. The food is finger-licking good. Good Day.
