San Felipe and El Dorado
  • City Tour
  • 0-3 hours

Panama has the largest Chinese community in Central America, one of the few nations that recognize both the People's Republic and Taiwan. The original Chinatown is along Avenida B and Carlos A. Mendoza Street at the entrance to Casco Viejo. A new and larger concentration of shops and restaurants is in El Dorado, near Corredor Norte and Metropolitan Park. El Dorado has some fine dim sum, but the two most popular restaurants aren't in either Chinatown. The popular Lung Fung Palace in the Los Angeles neighborhood has Cantonese specialties. The more elegant Golden Unicorn in the Evergreen Building in the San Francisco neighborhood near the convention center specializes in Taiwanese.
