Afriendly, red and yellow wooden interior welcome the guests who walk down the semi non-formal cafe. A mural on each side with big windows facing the garden. This place starts to feel like Mexico. This trip should be fun. The food-venture starts when I face the word "in" at the start of a counter.
For those who aren’t familiar with burrito, imagine a fat wrap filled with rice, beans, lettuce, salsa, meat, guacamole, cheese, and sour cream alongside meat-of-choice and sometimes sautéed onion. It’s often personalized, so you can take out what you dislike and replace them with what you love. At Picante, you begin with choosing base of crispy taco, soft taco or burrito. Then you fill it with rice. They have basmati lime rice and brown lime rice which tempt your curiosity. Select the toppings from fish, grilled steak or chicken. End your journey with the sides of Chili Con Carne (36k), fajitas, black beans or red beans. Chili Con Carne is ground beef, sour cream topped with cheese, served with tortilla chips.

Is burrito healthy? This has been a debate between experts in the countries where burrito holds the place next too burgers when it comes to lunch popularity. Considering it’s packed with veggies and beans, this cylindrical shaped tortilla wrap seems to be packed with more nutrition (especially protein and fiber if you have beans instead of rice) than its fast food counterparts. But burrito can be heavy and packed more calories. So why don’t you come early for a big and fast breakfast menu (30k, drinks included) and stay full for the rest of the day.
