Picantos Mexican Grill Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Picantos has recently opened their new outlet in Kalyani Nagar which is a popular location in terms of food joints. The outlet promises to bring the authentic Mexican dishes to the city with some elaborate menu with traditional quick bites & dips.

Ambience

The place is very compact but can still occupy a good amount of crowd. The colorful Mexican city wall posters, bunting flags, Mexican hat, feedback board,live kitchen counter,etc is what makes the surrounding of this place.

Out of the drinks menu i loved the Crunchy chocolate shake which i had twice & will surely comeback for this soon.

Starters

  •  Nachos- We were served two kinds of nachos(Loaded Nachos & Loaded chicken nachos)  both of which were fresh & crisp. They were served with 3 dips of which i preferred having them with the Guacamole. The added red beans & jalapeno went quite good with the cheese.

Cost: Rs 180/Rs 209

  • Tacos- The tacos were served in hard & soft shell. This authentic Mexican fingerfood is a tortilla with a filling of beans, cabbage, cabbage,chicken & sauces. I would prefer the hard shell tacos as the hard tortilla makes it easier to grab and the extra crunchy taste it adds to the soft filling. The tacos have been priced very cheaply in accordance to the quantity served.

Cost: Rs 139/Rs 149

  • Burritos- Burritto is highly loved & consumed on the go food. The tortilla consist soft filling generally made of veggies, rice, beans, sauces(covers all 5 course meals with filling). Here it is served inside a silver wrap which bind all its flavors & thus should be eaten soon so at to keep it away from sogginess.

Cost: Rs 159/Rs 179

  • Quesadillas- Of the 4 variant we tried the Mushroom Spinach & Spicy Chicken quesadillas. Made into tortillas these are grilled & cut like a pizza.

Cost: Rs 149/Rs 159

  • Enchiladas – The tortillas are rolled and immersed in some chilly sauce with cheese topped over it. Visibly it looked inedible to me as the cheese had become dry.

Cost: Rs 179

Desserts

  • Churros + Chocolate sauce- One of the best churros i tasted so far, totally made in-house and carried that exact amount of crispiness with some sumptuous chocolate sauce. I will recommend the team to come with some other type of presentation.

Cost: Rs 149

Picantos comes up with some authentic Mexican food but most which consists of same ingredients and thus left an overall similar taste. Loved the in house sauces and dips served with the different food.

At last a big thanks to Ms Jerlyn for inviting & team Picantos for hosting us.

Picantos is located at Shop 1, Sunshine Court, Central Avenue Road, Kalyani Nagar, Pune
