Burritos, you guys! What’s better than indulging in a big roll of fresh, warm, spicy food, getting the sauce all over your fingers and your clothes? Right now, I can’t think of anything. If you’re the same way, head over to NETA and get your fix of Mexican street food!
“Panza llena, corazón contento” – full belly, content heart – that’s the motto here, and it shows. I definitely couldn’t complain about the portions being too small. After my burrito with cactus and lentil filling, I was more than full and content. Especially after sharing a whole bunch of crunchy tortilla chips with guacamole before (both homemade and soo good)! Lisa and Charlene both went for the vegan sweet potato filling, Lisa with a burrito and Charlene with quesadillas. They both enjoyed it as much as I did.
Moreover, NETA is the perfect place for picky eaters: You can choose between a meat, vegetarian or vegan filling for your burrito, your quesadillas or your tacos. They offer “naked” burritos, which is all the ingredients of a regular burrito, but without the bread, in a bowl. Then there’s gluten-free tortilla bread, a natural one, a red one (colored with red beet) and a blue one (colored with blue cornmeal). You see, no one has to be left out of the fun here.
Interior-wise NETA highlights the urban, the street food. You will not find any sombreros here, but concrete and neon signs, which I think is much more modern and aesthetic. It definitely gave the photos an artsy touch!

Tabea has been a picky eater since she was 4 years old, when she decided she didn’t like meat (except her grandma’s meatballs). The following years she continued to challenge her family and friends with many other weird food preferences. Founding Picky Eaters is her answer to the question: “What do you even eat?!” @tabeaim
