We went eating dinner at Popo. The dishes were very tasty and came with a good size. The only negative notes was the way too abundant creme fraiche everywhere

I am from California and used to really good Mexican food. I'm afraid this Mexican dinner in Haarlem was a lot better than anything I've had in California for a long time. The dish was very distinctive and delicious. Called Burria. The waitress was just...More
