The construction of the Panama Canal in the early 1900s attracted people of different cultures, who have contributed to shaping this country's multi-ethnicity. Local dishes can now have Spanish or Chinese influence, as well as Lebanese, Italian, Afro-Caribbean, or other cuisines.
The number and variety of restaurants in Panama is growing very fast and making it an attractive culinary destination. As Panamanians, we are proud to be part of the Panama Canal's 100th anniversary celebration, which is why we have chosen as our theme this year "Multiple Cultures, One Identity." We will see you in ATLAPA from August 29 to 31.
