It’s a new year so it’s time to try new things. And I highly recommend Las Iguanas restaurant – they’ve got a new menu and it sits perfectly alongside their other yummy dishes and drinks.
Their new menu has an excellent selection of new dishes that must be tried. First and foremost may I recommend the Seco de Cordero (Dry Lamb) – but it is not dry at all! It’s basically lamb shank (a huge portion), slow cooked in a golden ale, red wine and Amarillo chilli sauce, served with amazing roasted sweet potato mash & crispy chilli and onions, and at only £18.95 it’s worth every pound! From their Mexican menu, try their Vegetarian Burritos. It’s sweet potato, butternut squash & chickpea chilli all nicely rolled up in a wheat tortilla and also stuffed with rice, refried beans and comes with crunchy slaw & cheese with salad, sour cream, guacamole & roasted tomato salsa on the side, and that’s a whole lot of food for only £10.50! How about going for something completely different and try a Cuban Sandwich.
If you’ve never had one before, I highly recommend one. It’s Roasted pork belly, Emmental cheese & ham with sweet mustard & green pickle relish layered in a buttery toasted bun, with slaw & choice of fries or salad – and at only £10.50 that’s a new Cuban food experience for you without having to go to Cuba! Also very very different is the Cauliflower & Corn Quinotto. What’s a Quinotto? It’s Peruvian-style quinoa risotto that comes with smoked cheese, roasted cauliflower & charred baby corn, topped with puffed quinoa & crispy chilli – only £9.95. Besides these amazing (and new) dishes, Las Iguanas still also serves your favorites from Brazil (Bahian Coconut Chicken being one of them), Cuba (Havana Club & Jerk BBQ Pork Ribs – yummy!), Argentina (Gaucho Steak will do nicely thank you), and Mexican (Enchiladas, Chilli Corn Carne, Fajitas, etc.).
I mean there’s just so so so much on the menu I could go on and on….like for instance their amazing Taco Planks where you can mix and match what type of filling you want; Tortilla chips & dip while you are waiting to order; as well as of course Nachos, Calamari, Mussels, salads – there are just too too many to mention. And speaking of a mention, you also need, need, to try their Piña Colada Mess for dessert. It’s Piña Colada ice cream with caramelised pineapple salsa, crispy pineapple pieces & toasted coconut chips – at only £5.50. If you don’t believe me how good it is, have a look at the photo! Yummy!
