The UK’s largest Mexican restaurant chain, Chiquito, is taking its menu to the Mex-Level with the launch of a huge new vegan menu.
Mexican restaurant Chiquito has just launched an exciting and impressive new vegan menu packed full of interesting and innovative main courses, starters and even desserts.
Launching in all Chiquito restaurants on July 9th, the vegan menu introduces new plant-based proteins such as jackfruit, banana blossom, palm hearts and soya protein to the menu for the first time for a new take on their classic fajitas, tacos, burritos and burgers.
The colourful menu will give customers plenty of choices to choose from as it is comprised of four vegan starters, five main courses with side dishes, three vegan desserts and even a vegan drinks list including beer, cocktails and wine.
In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, Chiquito Managing Director Angelo Gabrilatsou said: “We are particularly proud of our new vegan menu. It stays true to our core objectives by driving innovation, accessibility and fun. Having guest choice at the heart and understanding growing trends, this menu allows Chiquito to be more accessible to guests that seek vegan options.
“We are very fortunate that Mexican food lends itself very well to vegan and our new additions bring amazing tastes and textures, that will appeal not only to vegans but to all our guests. We are incredibly excited about this menu and firmly believe it puts us at the forefront of vegan dining in the UK. As Always, innovating and delivering the best in Mexican cuisine is at the heart of everything we do.”
