Those who followed Panama’s first vlog on the channel saw that we ended our day at MULA, an incredible bar that sits above Restaurante Tío Najava. But what you didn’t see in the video was that this was not our first option.

Well, we had planned to visit the rooftop of one of the most famous restaurants in the city: Tantalo. One of the best things about getting older is that we already know the style of the place right away. Tantalo really had a great view, but do you know when the place is anything but cozy?
The light was too bright, the music too loud and the worst thing was that the best seats were reserved, but the restaurant was still completely empty. It looked more like a very touristy place, with a great location, but it lacks that cozy atmosphere.
There they also only served very traditional drinks and, as we like to try new things, we decided to look for another place in the vicinity that seemed to have more to our face. I swear to you it was the best thing we did!
The MULA is about a 5 minute walk from the restaurant and, after taking a look at the place’s instagram, we decided we would go there. Right away the decoration of the first floor (Restaurante Tío Navaja) enchanted us, but it was only going up the stairs to get even better!

The bar is not big, but it is super comfortable and inviting, you know? Indirect lighting makes the atmosphere much more cozy and the decor is charming!

The bar part is beautiful and we only took the drinks list to be even more satisfied with our change of plans.

The MULA has several options for signature drinks and first-rate drinks, seriously. In addition, bartenders are super-sympathetic and help you choose the best option!

Each of us decided to try 2 drinks. What I liked most was the Bungalow that takes Whiskey Bourbon, angostura, ginger beer and lemon juice. All were delicious and the best part is that, in general, the drinks cost only 1 dollar more than those at the other restaurant.

Of course, we would not fail to try some dishes over there, right? At the beginning we ordered vegan patacóns. For those who don’t know, patacón is a clay made from mashed green bananas – like a low tortilla – which is then fried.
At MULA they come served with an avocado paste and some beans that you can add on the spot.

In addition, each of us decided to take a plate. I ordered the Veggie Chinatown which is nothing more than a rice with very crispy vegetables. It’s not the best I’ve ever eaten, but it’s definitely in my Top 5!

Paulo went to the Madame Tonia Melt: a sandwich with toasted brioche bread with caramelized onions, mushrooms, cheese and balsamic vinegar. According to Paulo’s very peculiar description, it looked like a gourmet vegetarian Big Mac, hahaha 😉 That’s because the sauce was very reminiscent of the classic Nº 1!

Well, we could see that we really liked the bar, right? I love finding comfortable places, with good drinks and delicious food. By the way, is there anyone who doesn’t like this combo? The bar is located in the Casco Viejo region, on Av. Central, and is open from Tuesday to Saturday until 11 pm and on Sundays until 7 pm.
