This weekend I was supposed to plan our time in Colombia. Instead, I just spent the last few hours researching and adding to our Panama restaurant list. C’est la vie. I’m not upset because I made some excellent discoveries and put in a reservation request for one of the most exciting restaurants in Panama, Donde Jose.
I am really hoping that we can get a reservation at this 4 table, 16 seat restaurant since we will be there during the week. I just think back to the La Degustation in Prague and the attention to service and detail that we received there, and I know that Donde Jose will be just as amazing. I don’t think the rest of our trip or dining experiences will be terribly expensive and even though Donde Jose is about $75 per person (Panama uses the US Dollar) for an 8 course meal and the wine pairing is about $40, I think we will be missing out on an experience if we don’t try to go there.
It is also close to our Airbnb! We are staying in Casco Viejo, which is walking distance to many restaurants - something I’m very excited about.
So, Donde Jose, call me!
