UK’s Largest Mexican Food Chain Launches New Vegan Menu
Featuring an innovative take on Mexican classics, Chiquitos goal is to make Mexican-inspired food more accessible to the nations changing food habits. With four vegan starters, five main courses with side dishes, three desserts and a vegan-specific drinks list, flexitarian, vegetarian and vegan customers will now have a wider selection of dishes to choose from.
Earlier on this month, the popular Italian restaurant chain Bella Italia announced that they will also be serving the brand Oumph! on their menu, giving customers the chance to try the soy-based meat substitute.
Managing Director of Chiquito’s, Angelo Gabrilatsou commented: “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.”
Available from 9th July in Chiquito outlets nationwide, the new menu will include a starter of banana blossom croquettes, a vegan burrito (‘vegaritto’) as a main that features Salty and Smokey Oumph! pieces with Oatly creme fraiche, and Mexican churros with a chocolate sauce for dessert, as well as plenty of other vegan-friendly dishes to choose from.
