One of the tiny restaurants that opened inside the hugely popular Hlemmur Mathöll food hall is the Taquería la Poblana, an authentic Mexican taco joint. It sells tacos or burritos filled with vegetables, potatoes, chicken, fish or beef with an array of condiments. 

The food is prepared by Juan Carlos Peregrina Guarneros who conjures up the food that his mother and grandmother taught him to make. 

The taqueria is a fresh change from the tex-mex mexican food usually served in Iceland and is not laden with sour cream or cheese sauce. It's become so popular that they often run out of food, especially on weekends. 

The Hlemmur Food Hall is open frm 8- 11 daily and the Taqueria la Poblana is open from 11 am to 9 pm daily.ÞS
