Humo could be called the world's first Panamanian barbecue restaurant. Mario Castrellón, who owns nearby Maito, has combined American-style Southern barbecue with local ingredients to stunning results. The two-level space in a wooden house definitely has an Austin-like vibe going for it, with reclaimed wood tables and butcher charts on the walls. Most dishes center around the grill, from smoked and grilled queso fresco, to wood-smoked beef brisket, to what many call the best burgers in town. There's a fine craft beer and whiskey list, too.
