One of the highlights of Panama City is the Mercado de Mariscos, Surrounded by two oceans it is only natural for the seafood market to be set up so fisherman can take their catch directly from the sea and sell it. The city fish market is open for business to local restaurants and the public. It is located at the end of Balboa Avenue and the Coastal Strip, next to the Old Town.
Ceviche is a traditional dish prepared from marinated raw fish, shrimp, octopus, squid, and clams, or the popular combination of all of these. On-site restaurants serve up a wide range of dishes, such as the famous paella or the traditional Guacho de Mariscos, a local version of seafood risotto, as well as fish accompanied by patacones (fried green plantains).
