Breakfast

For your breakfast, you can have tortillas with scrambled eggs and Panamanian coffee. It is the most common morning menu served by the restaurants in Panama. If you go to the self-service restaurants or you call it by cafeterias, you can pay it at affordable prices from around $3. However, if you try this menu in an upmarket restaurant which has waiter service, a minimum of $6 to $8 is charged for you for these dinings.

For the snacks, ceviches are the most favorite dish in Panama. It is a cook from fish and onion and usually is best complemented by lemon juice for its beverage. Other menus for the snacks are yuca or cassava and plantains. Yuca frita is tasted like french fries, while plantains has three ways of serving. First, patacones which are salty plantains. Second, Maduros that are mature (sweeter) fried plaintains. Third, Tajadas, a baked plantains with cinnamon.
