In 1991 Billy and Akaisha Kaderli retired at the age

financially independent lifestyle, they invite you
to take advantage of their wisdom and experience.

Along the main street in
the street from Big
Daddy's Grill is an unassuming bar/restaurant called
Black and White. Terrific for people-watching from the street side chairs out
front, Black and White offers a menu of appetizers, burgers, arepas,
hotdogs and wraps, perfect to go with a bottle of Panama's selection of national beers.
Black and White also offers Panamanian rum, whisky and wine.
The promise of passion
For as small an entrance as
Black and White offers, it is not easy to overlook due to its vibrant painting
on the wall just outside at the restaurant's front.
Happy Hour and Day Menu
Around town, beer can sell
for up to $2.50 a bottle plus tax and tip. Here at Black and White you can get a cold one for a
buck or a Balboa for $1.50. Arepas are a Columbian national food, and
Panama used to be part of this country before their independence.
Order a straight shooter,
sangria, some wine, or soda and have a hamburguesa or a BLT to go along
All prices are in USDollars.
The small entranceway
and front patio
Sitting in the front, we
were able to watch people walking up and down the main road. During the nightly
rains we were protected from the weather while still being able to hear the
music from inside. Staff was friendly and service was good!
Black and White back
We generally went to Black
and White for Happy Hour or for an early dinner snack. We were never here during
the jammin' time in the evenings when the place was full.
Still, we could feel the
friendliness of the restaurant and the warmth of the people who worked there.
A plate of chicken wings
This plate of chicken wings
goes for $6.50USD. They were tasty, but didn't come with a ranch or bleu cheese
I know, picky, picky, but
it's hard to leave all that restaurant training behind!
The chicken wrap with fries
We had eaten here previously and ordered the
really memorable fish wrap. This time we ventured out and ordered the one with
chicken. It was easily enough food for two to share along with the wings and be
full. Fries were delicious as well.
This is the bill with chicken wings and the
chicken wrap along with our beers. They gave us the Jubilado discount but
I can't figure out how they got the number they subtracted. The discount is not
applied to alcohol nor to the 7% tax, so it's a mystery.
Buffet stop by?
Everyone knew this guy who
called himself "Steve." Um, yeah. People rallied around him easily, he was a musician and he bought the whole house a round
Could this have been Jimmy Buffet who is known to frequent these
