La Panza es Primero, known for its bright colours and lucha libre theme is finished in Puerto Morelos, and as far as we can tell, in all of Mexico. La Panza is actually a small chain out of Spain. According to their website, they still have restaurants in Madrid.

The Puerto Morelos location opened in 2010 and famously was seriously damaged by a spectacular fire in 2013. Click on this link to see 30 seconds of fire footage, shot by yours truly.  Panza Fire Video

In reecent weeks, we noticed the distinctive decor was being removed and painted over. According to staff, the new restaurant will have seafood, but does not yet have a name. They say they will be open from 9:00 am to 7:00 daily, but in typical Puerto Morelos fashion, if people want to stay a little longer, they will stay open.

Update: March 09, 2017. The restaurant now has a name. It’s not terribly catchy, the name is, “Puerto Morelos Fish Market Restaurant”.

For a look back, here is Panza’s website. La Panza es Primero

Not a great shot of the menu, but a fairly good look at my thumb.
