Additionally, Trip Advisor highlights the Panamanian "ceviche" as a delicatessen seldom seen in other regions or countries. With exquisite taste of fresh sea bass, "Corvina Ceviche" is one of the most delicious seafood dishes. This is a small plate of fish seasoned with lime juice and spices, like no other.
The stew locally called "Sancocho" is also featured in Trip Advisor. This is described as a chicken stew made from cassava and yams. They mention the Sancocho to be another incredible mouth watering dish.
The following is how Trip Advisor describes Panama:
This multicultural city full of contrasts, with almost 1.3 million people, offers much more than the obligatory visit to the Canal. The slums are crowded with glittering towers. The old city is a maze of picturesque churches, plazas and palaces. 25 km from the city center are the National Sovereignty Park, the perfect place for hiking and birdwatching. To enjoy superb views over the canal, take a taxi or bus to Miraflores Visitor Center and do not miss naval traffic.
