A new restaurant in Arnhem has just opened up and trust me: you want to go here! The interior is really cool with a pink part on one side and an ‘jungle’ part with many plants on the other side and overall a lot of copper. As you might have guessed by the picture above it’s a Mexican restaurant.
They opened up a new restaurant in Arnhem that is totally different than the former locations. You can also find this new Popo in Rotterdam, Utrecht and Haarlem.
Where the old Popocatepetls had a campy feel to it, this new Popo is very stylish!
I can’t wait until summer when they’ll have a big outdoor area as well. And to get the summer feeling you can already go there for reasonably priced cocktails.
Besides cocktails, tequila and frozen margarita’s Popocatepetl also has delicious Mexican food on their menu!
For starters you could for example go for nachos, quesadillas or a Mexican plate with several dishes.They also have a vegetarian plate with roasted Padron peppers, black bean quesadillas, soft taco with pickled vegetables and tortilla chips.
For the main dishes you can expect all the classical Mexican dishes like fajita’s, enchiladas and burritos.
Picking a dessert at Popocatepetl is a real challenge: everything tastes so good! This avocado cheesecake for example is super smooth! But they also have churros, cinnamon ice cream with red fruit compote and an invention called Popo the Volcano which is red pepper and lime parfait with marshmellows and flamed tequila (yes they actually set the tequila on fire when the dessert is in front of you!)
