Natural beef shoulder, braised in a subtle mix of spices, onion, tomato, and peppers until it falls apart to the touch. This method comes together with a flavor that is a bit spicy, while still allowing the natural beef flavor to shine through.
Natural chicken thighs marinated in a layered spice mix, then braised using our homemade chicken stock.
This is the meat that started it all. We’ve always thought that if you want to get the measure of a taco shop, you just have to try their Carnitas. That’s why our ‘Classic Taco’ and ‘Classic Burrito’ both come standard with this delicious and traditional protein. Ours is brined and slow cooked with an exceedingly simple spice mix to complement that authentic pork flavor.
Tempeh is a fermented soy protein that is well loved by vegetarians and vegans for it’s health benefits and hearty flavor. In fact, we know a good number of omnivores (including the Poppo’s founders) who love some tempeh now and again. We order the best organic tempeh we know about from Rhapsody Foods in Cabot Vermont. The first thing you’ll taste is the tingle of fresh squeezed lime juice and cilantro, then the combination of our homemade spice mix, and finally the unmistakable nutty flavor of the tempeh itself.
When sourcing our produce, we try to make sure that as much of it as possible is organically grown. We use only ‘whole’ fresh produce… No processed stuff here.
We use only single-ingredient spices and make our own mixes in-house. This not only makes for clean, purposeful flavor, it means you don’t have to worry about hidden nonsense like MSG.
Our tortillas are made fresh, right when you order them thanks to our state of the art dough press. The tortilla dough is made fresh daily and pressed and cooked with each new order.
In keeping with our dedication to real, high-quality food, we decided to put a little twist on our drink selection. For example, our water comes in award-winning oxo-biodegradable plastic bottles, which makes the ocean happy. Our Fountainhead, Virgil’s and Jarritos sodas are free of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). For those of you who like a probiotic boost with your meal, we offer Kombucha 221BC, brewed in Sarasota. We also carry a variety of standard imported and domestic beers, as well as a unique selection of craft beers. If you visit our Anna Maria location, you will find a six-tap draft bar featuring an excellent selection of Florida brewed craft beers.
This is our line of fountain beverages. It took us a minute to dig up this little gem, but we’re glad we did! This unique line of sodas is made with real sugar and no high fructose corn syrup. It is a wonderful alternative to the standard giants.
This drink starts with a SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast), then fermented and blended with some of the best flavors nature has to offer—cinnamon, cayenne, raspberry leaf, turmeric, and more, to create a most perfect sparkling and effervescent tea. 221BC is an organic and living beverage that is not pasteurized. Inside each glass are benefits that come from fermented foods probiotics, active enzymes, organic acids, B vitamins, and antioxidants.
This one is a real favorite. Virgil’s crafts some of the best sodas in the world. The Root Beer is really exceptional. Even though these sodas cost a bit more, they are some of our best sellers. They also happen to be all natural; made with real cane sugar, fresh herbs, and spices, and are GMO-free.
Is there anything better than a Carnitas Burrito with a Mandarin Jarritos accompaniment? It’s hard to say, but what we can say for sure is that these delicious beverages are made in Mexico, sweetened with all natural sugar, and are non-negotiable for any self-respecting Taqueria.
