Mercado de Mariscos Restaurant
Panama City, Panama
The Belly of Panama CityWhat better way to understand a city’s tastes, personality and priorities than by wandering through its food markets? And what better food to sample in a country that is bordered by two oceans than its seafood? The Mercado de Mariscos in Panama City showcases a roaring seafood trade every day except for the third Monday of each month (when it’s closed for cleaning). Fishmongers sell to restaurateurs, residents and visitors alike, and the restaurant upstairs will cook the fish that you buy in the stalls below.
