Panama City is known as the ‘Spring Break Capital of the World’, and is probably not the first city you think of when going on a work trip. But there are so many different ways to explore a city, and amazing food is one of them. Luckily, this is something Panama City is full of. Throw in some great conference hotels, and you have everything you need for the perfect work trip.
For a very special dining experience and fantastic atmosphere at the docks of the Panama City Marina, head to Just the Cook. The food is prepared in a pontoon boat tied to the docks, and the cook here was chosen by the Food Network as one of their top 16 cooks in America. Another popular restaurant in Panama City is The Saltwater Grill. You will not only be impressed by the food, but also by the 25,000-gallon tropical saltwater aquarium that greets you as you enter the restaurant.
Heading to Panama City and not having a taste of fresh seafood would be a travesty. This is where Surfside Shrimp Company comes in. It is a seafood market where you can pick your fresh catch of the day and bring it yourself to one of their cozy tables to enjoy.
If you cannot choose between all the great restaurants in Panama City, there is only one thing to do. Join A Taste of Panama City Food Tours on one of their tours! This will not only allow you to sample some of the best food in the city but will also teach you about the rich history and culture of Panama City.
