Sabores del Chorrillo
There was a tradition years ago among Panama City-dwellers: going out for fried fish in El Chorrillo, the raffish barrio where boxing legend Roberto Durán grew up. The custom faded over the years, but not the renown of El Chorrillo’s fish. It’s led to the recent establishment of a “gastronomic marketplace” along the Cinta Costera. (The waterfront market was originally to be named the Fritódromo, in honor of the Panamanians’ love for all things fried!) City leaders thought to revive the erstwhile custom and eleven chefs were selected from the neighborhood, trained in restaurant management as well as haute cuisine by renowned high-end chefs, and then the city turned the premises over to them. It became Sabores del Chorrillo and today every stall has developed its own creative bill of fare.
