There was something about conquering my fear of needles and getting a tattoo that made me ravenous. It also could have been that it was lunchtime. Regardless, I was in luck because one store over was a delicious little place called Pikalo boasting “big taste! … in one bite!!” They couldn’t have been more right. Serving empanadas, sandwiches, juices, and tasty smoothies, they are a great place for lunch. Craving beef, I ordered the cheeseburger and was not disappointed. Putting their own twist on the cheeseburger, they topped it with lettuce, onion, and a yummy sauce I couldn’t get enough of, and they included perfectly crispy, seasoned french-fries on the side. It was delicious. I also enjoyed a strawberry smoothie which was refreshingly sweet and paired well with my savory lunch. In a great location with friendly staff, Pikalo is a tasty lunch spot in Jamaica Plain I will definitely go to again.
