Eurasia Restaurant- Fusion Cuisine At Its Best

Our family just enjoyed  a truly  sumptuous meal including our hard-to-please older kids (age 19 and 21) . Eurasia is one of our favorite Panama City restaurants.  Why? First, because it’s because of the creative fusion cuisine. Eurasia  fusion means a bit of Asia, a bit of Panama ( the owner is Chinese-Panamanian)  and a bit of Europe- yummy.

It is hard to say which dish was better- my husband’s ginger corvina, my sour plum spare ribs, my son’s chicken malay and our daughter’s vegetarian pie.   These are all unique dishes with a combination of flavors hard to find anywhere else.

Second,  we love Eurasia is because of the  all-you-can-eat dessert buffet. If you love dessert- this is the place. For just $7.50 you can feast on the best carrot cake in Panama a rich chocolate cake more like a dark fudge, a delicious three leches (Panama’s most exquisite dessert)  plus pecan pie, flan, etc.

Third,  we love Eurasia  because of the decor- Eurasia has one of the best decors and ambiences in the city.

Owner Gloria Chu learned the joy of food at her own family table as a child.  Her joy in giving others joy through food permeates the Eurasia experience.
