A bar/restaurant specialising in American food and spicy Latin drinks

While its name may suggest this bar/restaurant is only about Pisco Sours and Malbec, its food and bar offering traipses all over the Americas. Oh, don’t get us wrong – Pisco, everybody’s favourite Peruvian brandy, still gets a bloody good showing. But so does tequila in the form of Margaritas, both classic and Tommy style, as well the punch-in-your-face Lageritas (that’s a Tommy’s Maragarita served over crushed ice and topped with a snapper Mexican lager). While Micheladas vary across Mexico, at Panama House it’s super bold – served with rum, tomato juice, port, lime, chipotle gumbo and a Cajun salt rim served over ice, and of course with a beer on the side. For snacks, the menu ducks-and-switches depending on the time of day. Tacos and po’ boys are available all afternoon and evening – super tasty and well prepared. The Southern fried chicken with creamed corn, corned bread and gumbo sauce is a calorific indulgence, while the burger and the grilled hanger steak with battered buttermilk onion rings are great mates to the boozy drinks. Sure, there are stacks of other places offering a comparable menu – the food is most definitely on-trend – but it’s the efficient and extremely capable, friendly and knowledgeable service that lifts this local above many of the rest. Panama House is a smooth operation and well worth travelling across town for.
