Esencias Panameñas Restaurant & Catering

         Winner of the BEST OF D.C.                                2017 and 2018                          Best Latin American Restaurant 

Esencias Panameñas Restaurant & Catering, unlike a typical Latin cuisine restaurant, will provide a unique combination of authentic Panamanian food with a Caribbean flair at value pricing with a fun and entertaining atmosphere.  Chef Yadira is a native from Panama and she pays tribute to her place of birth through traditional dishes made with staple food products, such as Corvina fish, which she imports from Panama, hominy corn, coconut, culantro (not cilantro) and rice.

Panama is a paradise of many places of tourist interest, with a rich and varied gastronomy. 
Each quarter Chef Yadira will feature a historic event, a holiday observed, or a tradition upheld in Panama.  In addition, she will also feature a fruit, dish, or bake good in season during that quarter as it relates to Esencias Panameñas' menu.

Chef Stamp will prepare Hot Cross buns, priced at $8.00 and will be available for pick-up or shipment as of March 22nd in time for Easter.  Food orders must be placed via the website at:  Orders will not be accepted via phone or email.
