Brunch Movement in Panama City

With an influx of young Foreigners living in Panama, new traditions and new cultural activities follow.  The Brunch culture is surely becoming one of them.  The hilarious website, defines brunch as “a weekend ritual for twenty-something New Yorkers (NOW PANAMANIAN’S & EXPATS) involving the sharing of the first meal of the day with friends after a night of debauchery. Brunch can occur any time after noon and before 5 p.m. on either Saturday or Sunday and serves as a great way to catch up with friends over moderately priced food as well as bloody marys, mimosas or several glasses of champagne. Post-brunch activities often include napping or drunk shopping.”

So where do you go for Brunch in Panama?

A popular restaurant that has been serving brunch for a few years now is Market, in Bella Vista.  This delicious steakhouse, known for its incredible burgers also has a solid brunch menu.  A scrumptious steak and eggs will cost you around $15 and a Mimosa or Bloody Mary costs around $6.  For the Brunch Culture, Market is a pricey option but is also a consistently great meal.

Another fantastic choice that is new in town is the restaurant at Hotel Las Clementinas in Casco Viejo.  On Saturdays and Sundays they offer a set brunch menu with several courses and unlimited bloody marys and mimosas for $24.  The charming setting of this restaurant with its retro flair and tasty cuisine is becoming a popular spot for brunch lovers.

The last notable option is Brunch Industries.  Brunch Industries is a concept that holds a brunch buffet with unlimited mimosas and bloody marys for $20 per person at a different restaurant in Casco Viejo every other week.  The word gets out through Brunch Industries’s facebook fan page and lets brunch goers know when and where brunch is being held.  Their invite states, “A Gathering of minds and personalities to enjoy this age old tradition of Sunday Brunch at a new location in Casco Viejo every other week.  Unlimited bloody mary and mimosas + assorted brunch selection : $20 flat.”

So if you have yet to enjoy a brunch on Saturday or Sunday with friends after a night on the town, you might want to consider trying it out in one of Panama’s restaurant selections.
