I’ve only been to Chiquito a couple of times, but I have always liked the idea of the menu.
We went as a family and had some interesting dishes. I don’t think we were overly impressed with the experience, and I can’t see us making a return visit anytime soon. The food was okay, buy nothing special.
I had the chilaquiles, these were nachos tossed in sauce, oven baked with mozzarella until crispy on top and soft at the bottom, topped with a fried egg. I had mine with the barbacoa beef and chimichurri sauce.
It was just okay, I thought it was interesting with the egg. I didn’t really enjoy the soft nachos.
My eldest went with the chimichanga, fried tortilla packed with rice, refried beans, mozzarella and jalapeño cheese sauce. Served with guacamole, sour cream and salsa.
He did enjoy the dish.
My other son with the topped salad with a chicken + chorizo skewer.
The salad was mixed leaves, grains, avocado, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, carrot, pink onions and crumbled feta cheese in a citrus dressing. Interesting salad and combination of flavours.
The other dish on the table was a 6oz juicy tender steak, mixed salad and homemade sweet potato wedges.
The steak lacked flavour, and the sweet potato wedges were undercooked.
Overall it was just okay as a meal out, the service was lacklustre.
