Hg2 : The Hedonist


Although cheap in design and more fast-food joint than restaurant, Picante fills the gap of much-sought-after Mexican restaurants in Beyoglu, Istanbul. rnrnAll the classics are on the menu – tacos, burritos, enchiladas and nachos – all good value and served fresh, with enough jalapenos to give them kick. A few things are sadly missing, including refried beans, which just don’t seem to exist in Turkey, as well as an alcohol licence and hence margaritas. rnrnPicante is too small, white walled and brightly lit to offer an authentic Mexican dining experience, but it does provide an alternative cheap, satisfying bite to eat on the way to a big night out.
