If you want to eat Mexican soul food
I know a great place to go to!
Last weekend we went city tripping’ in Haarlem Holland. A weekend to remember. ☺
First of all, we love the city! situated nearby Amsterdam and Bloemendaal.
Haarlem speaks Magic! It’s such a vibrant place to be, with cozy restaurants, cafes, great shopping streets and lovely hotels.
After strolling the streets we decide to get a bite to eat in one of the many restaurants. Meanwhile passing a place called “Popocatepetl” a Mexican Cafe /restaurant offering a list of great cocktails.
We both agreed that we would get us cocktails later on… ☺
And so we did!
Popocatepetl named after the famous Vulcan in Mexico was fully packed and has a vibrant and friendly vibe to it. We were welcomed by Gerd the owner of the restaurant smiling and having a good time himself.
After a while, he served us tequila shots on the house…. We knew by then it would be an amazing night filled with laughter and drinks.
The evening carried us into fun, good-times, and many drinks, with the friendly staff en guests of Popocatepetl. But in a loving, funny haze we made sure we had a dinner table booked for the next evening.
Wondering if the Mexican dishes would be as great as their cocktails?
The food was so good, tasty and real Mexican. Chicken so well cooked and fresh, it almost fell off the bones…. A tasty Mexican veal burger to dream off.
They serve different great dishes from empanadas, guacamole, and nachos to Pez Espada Veracruz, to name just a few.
The restaurant, its cocktails, great food, and cozy cantina interior happily surprised us.
But most of all their hospitality and vibrancy, It’s been a while that I felt so home in a city and a place
So whenever you are near Haarlem, make sure to go and visit them. I am sure you are going to have a great night, with or without a sombrero 😉
