Take Away Fast food Mexican Casual dining

The thai-burrito with chicken, white cabbage, rice, sweet corn, onion, spring onion, satay sauce and fresh salsa tastes amazing.

To most of you, Serrano is just the name of a very hot chili pepper that grows in northern Mexico. To Icelanders, Serrano is a place where you can tickle your tastebuds with delicious, healthy and affordable mexican food in a fast way. You choose a combination from the menu or make up your own, and it will be ready in front of you before you know it. All Serrano restaurants give you the options of eating in and taking out, but only selected ones serve cold beer and catchy South American tunes with your meal.

The menu is simple but varied at the same time. You can choose between burritos, quesadillas or nachos, pick your filling and sides from the counter, and your choice will be made in a flash. What seperates the food at Serrano from other fast food is the fact that it is actually healthy. They pride themselves in offering only fresh ingredients and sauces that are all made from scratch on the premises.

Einar Örn and Emil Helgi, the owners of Serrano, first came up with the idea back in their student days when they were backpacking in South-America. When they finished college they decided to act on their dream of opening a Mexican restaurant. By combining all the best attributes of Mexican cooking with fresh Icelandic ingredients, they managed to open their first Serrano restaurant in Reykjavik in 2002. Today there are six Serranos in Reykjavik and four in Stockholm. Their passion for Mexican food and ambition towards affordable, healthy, nutritious and tasty fast food is really what makes Serrano a fantastic restaurant, and a very popular one at that.

For a substantial and filling bite that makes you feel like someone is throwing a loud Mexican party in your mouth, go to Serrano. Your tastebuds won't regret it, and neither will your body.
