Panamanian Cuisine is a worldly blend of African, Spanish, and Native American technique and ingredients, reflecting the country's diverse population. For example, tropical fruits, vegetables and herbs are used in native cooking.
Typical Panamanian foods are mildly flavored, sans the pungency of some of Panama's Latin American and Caribbean neighbors. Common ingredients include maize, rice, wheat flour, plantains, yuca (cassava), beef, chicken, pork and seafood.
