The third part of the little triumphant trinity of Street Food Cartel places on show at this year’s Festival, Antojito had quite something to live up to, following the outstanding experiences I’d had at Scoop Street and Pad BKK.

Specialising in Mexican fare, they offer a nice range of options, neatly set out on their menu board. The five-bean chilli burrito hooked me in.

I never really know how toppings work with these type of things, so I kept it simple by opting for everything, which included a really nicely judged hot sauce. Hotter and “insane” sauces are available if that’s your thing.

Based in the Checkpoint venue on Bristo Place, they have the “little oasis of calm” thing going on, even though the street outside was thronged with queuing patrons.

I took a people-watching pew at the window, and carefully unwrapped a foil corner of my burrito package.

It proved to be an intensely enjoyable eat, with flavours and textures coming together well in enjoyably hearty mouthfuls.

So Antojito kept their end of the Street Food Cartel bargain up, more than admirably. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit, and thought their food was superbly tasty. I look forward to trying the Urban Angel tacos, in the next few days, to see how their take on Mexican fare compares.
