Popina is about fast food being recreated with a style. From crave-worthy cheeseburgers, perfectly fried chicken sandwiches to seafood. Their food and friendly, welcoming ambiance are so loveable that you can’t help falling in love! Plus, you can either choose to dine-in or take out on the public seats overlooking the water. Both are awesome!

The lobster roll comes in a quite big portion, but it is so tasty, chewy, and creamy that you can never get enough of it. Especially, Popina Canteen has the best Puffcream in town, so that miss a chance of getting great deals on them.
