[PICADA] Bigger and exciting Latin American hangout

Visited Picada before when they were on Elgin road, it was a small bar but they had great drinks and food.
Now they are at LKF and the place is 10 times bigger with a huge bar, buffet area, music area and dining area.
On weekdays, they serve big lunches with a semi buffet included, the salad selection was good.

Started with two refreshing drinks.
+++++
It was punchy with pineapple, lime, mint and passionfruit.
++++
The Ruby Rose was sweeter mixed with cranberry juice, lime, passionfruit and grapefruit.
++++++++
Chicha venezolana:
The drink tasted similar to Horchata but there was rice in it which makes it is quite filling.
I loved it because you could taste roasted rice and there were grains of rice that had a good chew to it while the drink was not too sweet or creamy.
+++
I got the Empanadas which are like mini pies.
There are lots of fillings to choose from like beef, chicken etc but I chose the three cheese because I just love cheese and it was cheesy and satisfying.

+++++++++
The Peruvian Ceviche is a MUST ORDER because it is mixed in tangy Tigers milk and the whole dish is just appetizing and moreish.

+++++++++
Carne:
This was juicy skewers of beef sirloin in Bettel sauce on top of soft and silky baby potatoes tossed in a tangy chimichurri and aji limo sauce.
+++++
Bandeja paisa:
The portion was quite big and good for sharing.
If you like chili con carne and refried beans, this is the dish for you because there is fried egg, a thick slice of crispy pork belly, complimented by the meat sauce and refried beans.
There was also avocado, arepas and a piece of fried plantain.
++++++
PICADA:
29 Wyndham Street
