Food from Panama in DC area?

helenahimm | Dec 2, 2009 01:01 PM

Hi I've been living almost 3 years in DC area, and still I haven't found any restaurants or even a product that says "made in Panama" I know my country is so small so I understand why most of the sweet and green plantains come from Colombia, etc... but for restaurants I thought I would find something.

I was told there was a place on NE that sells "frituras" (fried yuca, empanadas, hojaldres, etc) but I was also told that the location is kind of dangerous and besides I can pretty much make all those fried stuff myself.

How I wish I had enough $$ to feed DC people with Panamanian food, a cross of Caribbean and Latin cuisine =)
