Ani, from Panama City, Panama. Teaches English to kids in Colon.
What’s one place you recommend in Panama City? Ozone Cafe. It’s amazing. The Thai red curry. The pizzas.
Raisa Mar is the chef at Terrae Art Bistro, a great restaurant in Punta Paitilla. If you haven’t tried the burgers there yet – you should. They’re all the better because they’re made from organic beef and come with crazy good fries.
What inspired the concept of Terrae? I’m very green. I wanted a green restaurant. I wanted people to be more green. I believe one person can make a difference and if you come to Terrae, it’s not more person anymore. Now it’s two.
What are your Panama City recommendations?
Alexa: I love el Apartamento cause the drinks are great and the vibe is amazing.
Liz: Los del Patio cause it involves art and it’s also good to hang out.
Kyle Kamimoto, originally from Irvine, California. Teaches economics.
Best orange juice in Panama City? That would have to be La Casa de Las Frutas y Los Helados. The frostee de piña y naranja is also good. Claro. It’s just awesome.
Best place to spend the weekends? Superbook. Cheap beer and lots of tv screens. The food’s ehhh, but it’s not about the food.
[Eds. note: Superbook is about watching football and betting and maybe watching other sports too.]
Favorite thing you’re wearing? This sweater. It’s from RVCA. I bought it at a surf shop in Irvine.
Happy Super Bowl Sunday!
Ruby, originally from Brooklyn, is here visiting her son in Panama City. Works as a jewelry designer for her own company called Bejeweled.
What’s your favorite thing that you’re wearing today? This bracelet [on the right]. It’s Hopi. My shoes are from Mexico, from the village Diego Rivera is from. Rivera is a very important artist for me.
What’re you looking forward to doing in Panama? I’m going to Santa Fe in the Veraguas province. I grow flowers and they have many species there, especially orchids.
