Picanté Fresh Mexican Grill serves fresh tacos in Stamford

Picanté Fresh Mexican Grill opened last Fall in Downtown Stamford. Yeah, there’s a lot of places in town where you can get great tacos, but Picanté has a menu featuring vegetarian, lo-carb and low-fat options.

Our favorites:

  • The Original Sin Taco – made with either grilled chicken or all natural ground beef, shredded lettuce and Cotija cheese.
  • Rosarita Taco with homemade refried beans, pickled onions, stuffed with your choice of protein, shredded lettuce and Cotija cheese.
  • Picanté Fish Taco with either oven-roasted fish or shrimp, shredded green cabbage and your choice of fish or shrimp.
  • The Long Life Quesadilla is made with a whole wheat tortilla with your choice of protein, refried beans and melted soy cheese. 
The Original Sin Taco

One of the things we like about the menu: you can choose what type tortilla you want. So mix and match – they’re all great. We were hesitant to try the whole wheat tortilla, but it was a great choice.

The above all sound like healthy options, but they don’t sacrifice taste. We don’t feel guilty indulging in a couple tacos, and the delicious homemade tortillas (which we can’t get enough of) and sauces. Speaking of sauce…Picanté has a wall of homemade salsa and sauces, from mild to plain ole ass kickin’. We’ve tried half of them – and they were all great. If you’re taking your food “to go,” you can pack these sauces to go. They’ve got plenty of containers to load up.

Overall, great food at great prices. The staff are friendly here, and so is the manager, Anshu. You can dine in – and savor a glass of sangria – or take it to go, or get the food delivered. We’re big fans of this restaurant.
