Nice decor.....but overall slightly disappointing!

I discovered Frida Antojitos Mexicanos through Happy Cow and was looking forward to trying out some vegetarian food in Cordoba, as options here are limited and veg-friendly restaurants are hard to come by.
The place has a lovely atmosphere and it is vibrantly decorated with various Frida Kahlo memoribilia and typical Mexican ornaments. The waitress was friendly and polite and me and my friend did not have to wait long for our food.
However, both my friend and I were slightly disappointed with the food. Firstly, the strawberry margarita my friend wanted wasn't available, so she got the lemon one, which she found too creamy and not slushy enough. Whilst I appreciated there being veggie options on the menu, I was slightly underwhelmed (as was my friend) by the veggie burrito. We asked the waitress if the burrito would come with salsa, sour cream and guacamole (for almost 7 euros, we hoped so) to which she replied 'no'. She agreed to give us some on the side (but the sour cream never showed up :-( ) I asked her what was inside and she said peppers, onions, corn, carrot...and not a lot else, really. I asked if she could add some beans inside to make it a bit more of a hearty meal and she politely said yes. When the burritos came, my friend and I were very disappointed with the portion size - both of us agreed they were the thinnest, least filled burritos we've ever had. Now, we're both used to over-stuffed burritos (probably the size of 2 of the burritos we were given), with beans, rice, cheese, various veggies and the all important salsa, guacamole and sour cream, so for us it certainly left much to be desired. We were still hungry, so we ordered some nachos (the waitress was helpful and made one half with chicken for my friend and the other half without any for me) and they were okay, but again, for the portion size, a bit too pricey.
The food didn't taste bad or anything, but I was certainly hoping for bigger portion sizes, sour cream and a lime slice (not lemon) in my Corona!
Lovely decor, Friendly staff, Food arrived quickly
