You don’t find these enchiladas in Philly!

I have to admit, we haven’t experimented often with street food while we’ve been in Panama.  We have though, on occasion, wandered into the different bakeries to sample the wares. Mark already talked about Sugar and Spice, the elite European style bakery in town, but there are also lots of Panamanian style bakeries

Empanadas are common for snacks here, and for meals too, if they’re big enough.  My favorite local snack though has been the “enchilada” — not at all what I think of when I hear “enchilada”:

Boquete’s version of enchiladas!

 YUM.  They taste like chicken pot pies with exceptionally good crust.  And for 85 cents a piece — quite the bargain!
