The first time I visited Yuc I booked a table for a group of people as a surprise for my boyfriend’s birthday – he knew we were going to have dinner, but not where. Actually we hardly knew ourselves. Even with the address and the help of Google Maps we walked up and down the street several times before we found the entrance. We were a bit late but the staff at Yuc were very understanding – it wasn’t the first time a dinner party couldn’t find the restaurant. Yep. It’s that hipster. On their website it says that they want to be “A hidden oasis in the middle of Odenplan”, and it is.
Yuc is a colorful, happy, and noisy Mexican restaurant with inspiration from all around the world. The idea is that you order several smaller dishes, for example Taquitos with black bean cream, habanero and onion (90 SEK), and BARBACOA, Chuck steak cooked for 48 hours, watered Galia melon, pickled onions, and valentinacréme (100 SEK). They also serve delicious drinks such as HEERING IS KEERING: Mezcal Bruxo no2, Heering Cheery Liqueur, Beterraga, Lima, Azucar, and Bàlsamo de Limón (128 SEK).
So, you might not be able to find Yuc at first since they don’t have any big signs or anything, but I promise you that the restaurant is there, and it’s worth looking for. The birthday dinner was a success with lots of laughs, great food and tasty drinks!
