"Picada: A Taste of South American Culture in Lan Kwai Fong"


"When I picture a Latino gathering, I imagine bright colours, a lively mood and a supersized selection of homely meals (I may have watched one too many movies!) – and that’s exactly what I discovered upon entering Picada. Alongside the tastefully festive lighting and gold trimmings, it’s clear that the interior has been carefully designed with the different regions of Latin America in mind. The “made to share” mentality of this lively restaurant encompasses its fun and vibrant atmosphere (complete with live music!), not just it’s food. With a menu that’s chock full of rich hearty dishes and a bar stocked with a diverse selection of themed cocktails and specialist spirits – including an exclusive unfiltered sugar cane gin – it’s definitely the place for a fiesta!
