Mexican restaurant chain Chiquito is taking its vegan offering to the Mex-level with the launch of new vegan breakfast dishes and kid's meals.


Last summer, the UK’s largest Mexican restaurant chain, Chiquito, launched an exciting and impressive new vegan menu packed full of interesting and innovative main courses, starters and even desserts.

Now it’s taking its vegan offering to the Mex-level with the addition of three hearty new vegan breakfast options as well as adding vegan options to the children’s menu for the first time ever which is available now at all 78 sites from today.

Putting a Mexican twist on the Full English, the Vegan Sizzler comes with a hash brown, vegan seitan sausages, baked beans, flat mushrooms & seasoned tomato.

The dish also features vegan scrambled eggs, made from a combination of tofu, coconut milk, onion, red pepper, black turtle beans, butternut squash and chipotle chilli to give a slight kick.

There’s also a Breakfast Burrito filled with hash browns, tomato, beans, vegan cheddar, vegan scrambled eggs, vegan sausages, brown sauce all wrapped and baked in a spinach tortilla. Guests can also opt to go for a chimichanga version- essentially a deep-fried burrito!


Kid’s menu

For the first time ever, the children’s menu now also features vegan options meaning the whole family can enjoy a meal out together.

The new dishes include banana blossom bites served with Oatly creamy oat fraiche, and the Mexican Bean Stew with vegan cheese.


In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, Chiquito Managing Director Angelo Gabrilatsou said: “We are massively excited about the launch of our new breakfast menu as it adds freshness, authenticity and loads of flavour, allowing our guest to be as adventurous as they want.

“Both the breakfast and the new kids menu stay true to our core objectives by driving innovation, accessibility and fun and as having guest choice at the heart, whilst understanding growing trends, this menu allows Chiquito to be more accessible to guests that seek vegan options.

“The last eighteen months we’ve focused on improving the quality of our food and service whilst dialling up the fun that we are famous for and believe this is our biggest improvement yet.”
