Chiquito – Various Locations

Listen up, amigos 👭🇲🇽 {ad}

High street chain @chiquito has launched a huuuuge vegan menu (almost as big as their non-vegan one) including starters, mains, desserts, wines & cocktails. I take my sombrero off to the effort they’ve put in 👏🏼🇲🇽 Not only have they given us lots of options but they’ve really thought about the kinds of ingredients vegans want to eat! I’m talking Oatly and I’m talking Oumph! Bravo, Chiquito.

What’s even better is that Chiquito is based all over the UK which means that lots of people will have access to this food!

Below is what we ate and what we thought!

🌱⁣⁣⁣⁣Jackfruit Baja Tacos

💰£12.99

✏️The first thing I noticed about the tacos was that they are a little tricky to eat. They were jam-packed, which is great, but did mean that there was a little bit of spillage whilst trying to eat them. The flavours were nice and the jackfruit was great. The guac was nice – full of citrus, coriander and tomato. I didn’t particularly notice the cheese if I’m honest.

🌱⁣⁣⁣⁣Vegarrito

💰£12.29

✏️Loved the sweetness of the tortillas on the side! The burrito itself was fully loaded which was great. The texture of the “chicken” was nice although one bit I had was a little too tough. The wrap had some mild heat to it which I liked but the flavour itself was a little too earthy for me. The spicy slaw was beautiful but I found that I wanted the whole thing to. be a little sweeter. It’s hard to explain but the flavour just wasn’t quite right for my tastebuds.

🌱⁣⁣⁣⁣Banana Blossom Burger

💰£15.19

✏️The cassava fries were really nice. I wasn’t expecting to like them but they were nice! The texture was very similar to potatoes and they were cooked so that they were crisp on the outside and soft inside. The burger actually had a really nice flavour to it. I had worried that it might be a little dry but it wasn’t! The sourdough bun was amazing – so soft and squishy. I would’ve liked a bit more sauce inside the burger though. There was a little too much beetroot slaw for me, I would’ve preferred the lettuce shredded too.

🌱⁣⁣⁣⁣Banana Blossom Croquettes

💰£7.59

✏️ I really enjoyed these, they were one of my favourite dishes. They were creamy and moist with a nice crunch on the outside. They weren’t greasy and they had a nice flavour. The Oatly creme fraiche went well too.

🌱⁣⁣⁣⁣Vegan Nachos

💰£6.99

✏️These were nice but needed more toppings. I really liked the way that the tortilla crisps had a sweet flavour to them, they didn’t rely on the toppings for flavour. The guac was nice and the tomatoes were really sweet. The red onion was also a brilliant addition. I love red onion! I would’ve liked the salsa to be a bit more like a sauce. I liked the parts which had a lot of cheese on them but that wasn’t very consistent across the dish.

🌱⁣⁣⁣⁣Vegan Fiesta Fajita

💰£13.29

✏️This was my favourite dish by far. That charred / flame-grilled type flavour on the veg and Oumph! chicken was SO GOOD. The ‘chicken’ was realistic and the veggies were cooked perfectly. The portion was very generous too!

❓Order Again?⁣⁣ ⁣Yes

 

🌱⁣⁣⁣⁣Palm Heart Baja Bowl

💰£14.69

✏️This didn’t really do it for me. I wasn’t sure exactly how to eat it which I found frustrating and the flavours were alright but a little bland. I really liked the sweet black beans. I think I would’ve preferred to be able to mix it all together.

❓Order Again?⁣⁣ ⁣No

 

🌱⁣⁣⁣⁣Sweet Potato Skins

💰£6.19

✏️The skins were really nice. The flavour on these was what I was hoping for in the burrito – a bit sweeter. Sadly, the sweet potato was a little undercooked for us.
