About Us

El Picante is about to undergo another evolution after the lockdown! Elly within the entertainment and catering industry for over ten years is working with excellent Mexican chef’s and now ready to release a brand new lunch menu aimed at “authenticity and quality” having the perfect combination of Mexican and Tex-Mex roots integrated in every plate. With a background of experience and a fresh perspective, Elly is ready to explore the new trend and additional avenues of business. We want to take our food, drinks, and services to the next level with our authentic tacos and margaritas.

El Picante was established in April 2012. We started young & energetically with our food trailer. And with hard work throughout the years we build a large loyal customer base. As demand grew, the business transformed from counter service to a full scale restaurant. In December 2016 we finally where able to open our first Restaurant with currently seats 45 guests with additional 45 guests on the first floor.

We pride ourselves in offering a truly professional service with presentation and preparation being of upmost importance to us. We also pride ourselves in the quality of our work and the hygiene standards which we work to. Elly, who has focused on the Catering industry, manages the company.
