Hoppípolla is an Icelandic term that means ‘jumping in puddles’ and the restaurant really lives upto its name. The ambiance created by model aeroplanes hung from the ceiling, bioscopes installed on walls and funky yet comfortable sitting arrangements can make even the gloomiest face smile. And guess which colors dominate the restaurant? They are blue and white. Perfectly designed for Kolkata indeed.
