Without the diversity of international cuisine, bored taste buds will twiddle their thumbs through lunchtime and lick dinner dates. Keep taste buds appropriately entertained with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of authentic Panamanian cuisine at Conoce Mi Panama.
At Conoce Mi Panama, culinary artists steam, grill, and toss flavorful Panamanian fare in the restaurant's boldly adorned interior. Conoce Mi Panama's robust menu bursts with game and vegetables that the staff infuses with Panamanian flavors and pairs with traditional sides, such as fried plantain. Slice a sizzling fried steak a la pimienta piled with caramelized onions ($12.75), or refresh taste buds with a sautéed salmon fillet accented with a mound of citrus-mango sauce ($14.75). A culantro-coated half cornish hen ($12.75) quells clamorous bellies, and selections such as vegetarian chicken strips sautéed with green peppers ($12) serve as savory meat-free ameliorations and worthy Jenga opponents. Organic bean pie ($3.50) arrives decked out for dessert, served amid vibrant red, orange, and mint walls or telekinetically transmitted onto the restaurant's enclosed outdoor deck.
