Had a burrito manchamanteles at Picante in Berkeley. This mole sauce is not supposed to be knock-your-socks-off spicy, but the Picante version was a little too timid. The sweet, red sauce drenching the chicken would have been helped by a contrast with a little peppery relish: radish slices, shredded cabbage or salsa cruda. As it is, it's a kid's burrito, not bad, but not offering much complexity.
