Delicias Margot is a great example of Panamanian cuisine traditionally served during small town celebrations. Here you can sample tamales and bollos which are similar to tamales but sweeter. There are two kinds of bollos, plain or with stuffing, the second ones are called bollos preñados, literally meaning pregnant. More specialities include chorizo Santeño made Los Santos province style, pork rind, roasted pork, corn fritters called torrejitas, hojaldres (fried dough), yucca fritters called carimañolas and all this can be washed down with a lemonade sweetened with molasses block shavings.

Let’s say this place will not be endorsed by the American Heart Association but it is well worth the visit.
