Former Donna’s Social Club, an American dinner in the fifties with lots of pink, peach, and mint green, plants has been closed and has been changed into Pachamama, a restaurant that exhibits a refined version of Nikkei cuisine.

Pachamama offers beautiful flavors with a complimentary wine- and cocktail menu. Pachamama, or Mother Earth, is the brainchild of owners Emile Bos and Thomas Bullinga, also known from Florentin and Flinders Cafe in Groningen. They’re introducing the Nikkei kitchen concept to Groningen, inspired by Japanese fusion.
Bos and Bullinga’s goal is to excite guests about the world of Japanese fusion cuisine. They’re serving up dishes like corvina with leche de tigre, wasabi, and passion fruit, and deep-sea shrimp with nashi pear, dashi, and fermented cashew in a five-course shared dining experience, much like at Florentin.
The combination of Japanese and Peruvian cuisine is a match made in culinary heaven, blending the purity of Japan with the richness of Peru’s seafood, fruits, and peppers. They describe it as ‘progressive’ and ‘challenging’, and just like at Florentin, the overall experience at Pachamama promises to be exceptional, complete with impeccable service and complementary music.
You can find Pachamama at NIEUWE MARKT 7.
