Panama

Panama is the nexus linking North America with South America, and the Atlantic Ocean with the Pacific. With long stretches of beach along two oceans, seafood is found in abundance. Lobster, octopus, and corvina (sea bass) are often found on the menu whether grilled, fried, or marinated in citrus juice in ceviche. Other typical dishes include tamales of beef and corn dough wrapped in banana leaves and “ropa vieja”, a stew of shredded flank steak, tomatoes, peppers, and cilantro. Sancocho, a hearty stew of meat, potatoes, yucca, plantains, and cilantro is the national dish of Panama. In 2003, a 2,500 gallon Sancocho was made in honor of the country’s centennial celebration. It was entered in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest soup ever made.
