Fusion cuisine is all the rage now. Proof of that is the new restaurant which has opened right next to Gran Vía called La Panamericana. The menu features Peruvian, Venezuelan, Mexican, Texan and even Japanese touches, a cornucopia of flavors on your table in an informal and fun space.

The restaurant is decorated with original wood panels and plants to create a warm ambiance. The layout is thought to eat in groups, a bit more informal for two in high tables with stools. It also has a bar for snacks and drinks. The menu is available in paper or on iPads mounted on the wall. La Panamericana also offers guests several daily newspapers, ideal for those eating alone. Guests can choose among three tasting menus priced 20, 30 and 40 Euros respectively. All dishes standout for including top-rate raw materials and a spectacular presentation. Among the star dishes are Salmon, Prawn and Octopus Ceviches, Seabass Tiradito with Tomato Sauce and Seafood Soup served in an Italian coffee maker that elaborates and filters the vegetable and seafood stock; Creole Grill with Gizzards on Light Yucca and Latin American Mojo; Mackerel Sushi on Burned Rice and Bienmesabe Temaki. As for desserts, we recommend Fruit Ceviche on Lime Slices, Chile Pikin and Panela and Rice Pudding Sushi.

You can wash down these delicious dishes with cocktails prepared on an ancient machine from the Antilles, an ice crusher that churns out ice of different flavours. The wine list is well assorted, with Spanish and Panamerican brands. The restaurant allows guests to bring the wine from home or from the store.

A mix of amazing flavours with aromas from around the world! Do you fancy trying something new and original?
