to take advantage of their wisdom and experience.

we kept hearing about the town's best burger ever. Apparently they serve this
yummy delight at Mike's Global Grill, so we had to go.
Situated across the street
from the locally famous
Sugar and Spice
Restaurant and bakery, behind the Fish
House just over the bridge on the creek, this is Mike's.
Mike's Global Grill
Michael and Heidi Rehm are the
proud owners of "Mike's Global Grill" since May, 2011.
As the story goes, Mike took a
cooking gig at the Amundsen-Scott Station in Antarctica and it began
a 3-year career of being a chef for the crew of an isolated research
station on the frozen continent.
Heidi worked as medical staff at
the South Pole and eventually Heidi and Michael met in 2005 at the
bottom of the world and fell in love.
While on vacation in 2011,
Michael and Heidi were taken with Boquete and were able to realize their dream
of running their own restaurant "overseas" with the purchase of this business.
Inside the Global Grill
Mike's is a popular hangout for watching
sports on TV, utilizing free internet while lunching or having a beer, and there
is live music Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays starting at 7:30 pm.
Along with this jovial atmosphere, there are
also tables outside by the river if you would prefer to enjoy nature instead of
the hubbub inside.
Mike's entree menu
Mike and Heidi offer delicious entrees from
around the world. Want English Fish and Chips? Middle Eastern Falafel? How about
Authentic Pad Thai? You can find it here.
wraps, salads, wings and soup
Mike's offers bar food
also, and we had several of their hamburgers here. They were a good price and
quite tasty and there was plenty on the plate. No one goes hungry, that's for
Or if you would rather have
half a rotisserie chicken, a rousing fresh salad, a sandwich or wrap, there are
Mike's Midwestern style chili
Sometimes chili hits the spot, and this plate
did not disappoint. Flavorful, this bowl was topped with cheese, chopped raw
onions and fresh tomatoes.
Pulled pork sandwich
As you can see, there is plenty of food. This
delicious Southern U.S. style pulled pork sandwich had a side of BBQ sauce,
French Fries and Cole slaw. The pulled pork was slow roasted over a wood fire.
Here is our bill for two
Balboa beers, an ice tea and two Hamburgers.
No Jubilado discount
here! Perhaps the discount is given on the full plates, but not the luncheon
sandwiches and short meals.
This is a good view of the
outdoor seating right in the middle of a tropical garden and just a
stone's throw to the creek.
Most certainly, if you are
in Boquete, Panama, have a meal or a brew at Mike's Global Grill. Go dancing!
Listen to the live music.
We think you will enjoy it.
