THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED.
For several months, I had been hearing about a killer new lunch spot in town, Super Pan. Only open for lunch, and only Tuesday to Friday, Super Pan is the brainchild of Top Chef contestant Hector Santiago, who owns Pura Vida, the Costa Rican tapas restaurant in whose basement this gem lies. I finally had the opportunity to be in-town one day around lunch time and swung by for a bite.
I started with a very light salad, ciabatta bread with alfalfa sprouts, grapefruit and a citrus vinaigrette. More grapefruit than anything else, but once you got past that, it was good.
Looking over the menu, I decided on the Medio Dia, literally “the middle of the day”, idiomatically translated as “lunch”. Crispy roasted pork, ham, chayote pickles (held for me), swiss, habanero mustard (mmmmmm) on a steamed coconut bun. What a great lunch spot.
[…] fan since my first meal at Pura Vida and I’m so glad that I was able to have lunch at Super Pan before it […]
