Looking for traditional Panamanian food in a casual atmosphere? Stop by Diablicos in the Casco Viejo historic district. You can’t miss the restaurant — it has a large statue of a red devil standing guard right outside. The Diablico Sucio, which translates to “dirty devil,” is a familiar cultural figure in Panama dating back to colonial times when villagers would dress up as devils in celebrations. Don’t worry though; inside this restaurant, the food is simply heavenly. Your best bets are signature Panamanian dishes like Sancocho, a traditional stew.
