About La Finka

A Kosher Gateway to Panamanian Delights.
Imagine yourself in Panama City, steps from Chabad, and enjoying a world-class steak on a trendy, tropical urban rooftop. La Finka beckons, a haven for kosher travelers and meat lovers alike. Prepare to embark on a culinary journey across continents and cultures, savoring deliciousness in a spacious, inviting atmosphere. Opened in January of 2018 in the upscale, beachside Punta Paitilla district of this distinctly international city, La Finka enthusiastically celebrates the many ways in which food connects the global community — much like the famous nearby canal.
For an authentically local taste of Latin America, tantalize your palate with the delightfully crispy Empanadas de Carne, filled with perfectly spiced, savory beef and fried to golden glory. Or, dive into the iconic Patacón, a Caribbean masterpiece featuring fried green plantains crowned with savory shredded BBQ beef and refreshing pico de gallo. Craving Italian? Indulge in the melt-in-your-mouth Ribeye Carpaccio, hearty Tagliatele Bolognese, or the simplicity of Spaghetti Agli Olio. La Finka doesn't forget the flavors of Israel and the Middle East, either. Explore the textures of traditional Sephardi favorites like Kibbeh and Lahmajin, savor the succulence of their Schnitzel, or tempt your taste buds with flavorful Chicken, Beef, or Lamb Shish Kebabs. Feeling like a taste of home? The signature La Finka Burger with its layers of pastrami, tomato, and caramelized onions awaits, alongside tender Lamb Chops and expertly grilled Bone-In Ribeye Steaks.
In addition to the diversity of its cuisine, La Finka also offers a diverse selection of dining experiences and price points, making it a convenient place to visit more than once during your Panamanian vacation. You can grab a Smash Burger to go to enjoy on the beach for lunch; come back at siesta time and grab a spot on the lush rooftop to enjoy a casual afternoon snack of some creamy Hummus and a simple Tomato and Avocado Salad; then dress for dinner and dine in the sleek, modern interior, perhaps indulging in the traditional Parrillada, a family-style platter of chargrilled delicacies ranging from ribeye medallions to beef ribs to chicken.
But La Finka transcends a mere restaurant. It's a complete kosher experience. Calling all grill masters! A full-service butcher shop operates on site as well, boasting prime cuts of the finest internationally-sourced kosher meats. Take a piece of Panama's magic back to your villa and ignite your own culinary adventure. With its diverse menu, spacious indoor dining, and breathtaking rooftop terrace showcasing the Gulf of Panama, La Finka offers more than just a meal; it offers an experience. Whether you seek casual local fare, upscale international flavors, or simply a convenient and delicious kosher option, this vibrant haven brings the world to you and truly caters to every taste and occasion.
