Snapshot of a sign of a restaurant at El Dorado called Woods and Charcoal. Obviously their main dish is barbecued meat. I like the combination of colors. Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.

Sign of a place where they sell pets for the family. The animal on the left of the picture is an iguana. Wikipedia defines this animal as a large herbivorous tropical American arboreal lizard with a spiny crest along the back; used in Central America and South America as human food.

Iguanas are highly sought out in Panama, specially in the countryside for their delicious meat.  People who eat them say they have a taste similar to chicken.  I stay away from eating iguanas.  Besides not being very attractive, I feel they are similar to snakes.  I’m all for a barbecue steak anytime.  Good Day.

My wife Aura, and the Twisters visited El Machetazo last Saturday  in an effort to buy some groceries and other stuff for the house.  It was getting late and there was no time to prepare a formal lunch.  On the way out, they noticed a small restaurant that looked like a black choo-choo train.  Here they sold patacones and roasted chicken.  Yummity-yum-yum.

That was our quick lunch; modest but very tasty.  The Twister love patacones and so do I.  Below are a couple of pictures of the small restaurant outside El Machetazo in Panama City, Panama.  Here we go.

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.
