Sabor Escondido- An Eatery in Boquete, Panama
Why We Went: My girlfriend Delia and I met for breakfast at Sabor Escondido. Although I had visited for lunch in the past, this was my first time trying their breakfast.
What We Had: Both of us ordered Ham and Cheese Omelets with Ojaldas (elicits Panamanian fry bread).
Noteworthy: The view at Sabor Escondido is truly amazing. We chose a seat by the windows were we could watch the golfers and see the stream flowing by. Beautiful flowers, dozens of varieties, dotted the landscape and the sun was shining on the mountains in the background. This is a superb spot.
Best Part of the Meal: The omelets were really great! Typically, I avoid ordering omelets because I find that they are too eggy, overcooked, or do not have enough filling. No worries here. These omelets were generously packed with chunks of ham and white cheese and tasted delightful.
Bonus: Join Sabor Escondido’s mailing list for weekly and monthly specials. They also have special occasion meals for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
What Needs Improvement: The Sabor Escondido server’s knowledge of the English language was limited. Since I do not speak Spanish, it was difficult for me. It also took 15 minutes or more for our canned sodas to arrive. The coffee Delia ordered never came. Sabor Escondido should also be proactive in providing butter, jelly, and other condiments that might be necessary for ones meal before serving the food at the table. Also, serving plates were typically decorated with a pretty flower or some kind of garnish, but our breakfast plates came out plain and boring.
My Rating Scale 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest)= 8
FYI: This was my most recent lunch. A fresh, tangy Tomato Soup and Goat Cheese Grilled Cheese sandwich were amazing!
