#ChiquitoMixOff

Here at Chiquito we’re big fans of a chiqui cocktail… or two… so to celebrate we held our annual Cocktail Championship in Leicester Square!

After sets of regional heats, the best of our bartenders brought their unique cocktail creations to the national semi-final in London.

First each bartender had to pass a technical test, making up our famous cocktails accurately from memory, not an easy task with dozens of different combinations and flavours! Our judges then selected the best ten bartenders to go through to our evening competition.

With the chosen ten ready to compete, our judges lined up to sample their brand new cocktail creations full of flavour and flair. Imagination, skill and presentation all contributed to the scoring for each drink put forward by our mixologists.

After a gruelling challenge, only three could be crowned as our finalists – Dan, Jade and David – who will be battling it out to be the Cocktail Grand Champion in a few weeks at our Chiquito Annual Conference. Keep an eye out amigos for our winning drinks; they’ll all be going on the menu!

Say it with Free Prosecco for Mum this Mother's Day

We all know that Mothers deserve a little pampering and to be made to feel special every now and again. To help get you in those good books early this year we’re treating Mum to a free glass of Prosecco on us when she dines from the main menu. A bit of Pop, Bubble and Fizz will definitely make this Sunday one to remember together, see you soon amigos.

Chiquito proudly supports Children with Cancer UK

For 2016 we are proud to announce that we will be supporting the charity Children with Cancer UK throughout our restaurants. Children with Cancer UK is the leading national children’s charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer. Almost 4000 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK.

I suggested working with Children with Cancer UK as I have gone through this personally and strongly feel that no child should have to deal with cancer. The work of Children with Cancer UK will make a massive help to families across the country as well as funding the essential efforts in research that will beat cancer for good. We are extremely proud to support them.” - Linda, Northern Operations Manager

Supporting Children with cancer UK is a charity that unfortunately far too many people can connect with. Cancer needs to be dealt with full stop and anything that we as an organisation can do to help with this will be a privilege.” Jason Green – Managing Director

You can donate and find out more about Children with Cancer UK at http://www.childrenwithcancer.org.uk/.

Introducing Chiquila - an evening by Chiquito

What’s Chiquila amigo we hear you ask, well, as the old Mexican saying goes… Tequila is not just for shots and Chiquila is our way of celebrating the history and flavours of Tequila whilst enjoying authentic dishes in a monthly fiesta!

An evening filled with five mouth-watering courses of our freshest street food dishes, perfectly paired with a Tequila cocktail for each course to help our guests discover and experience Tex-Mex in a whole new way – it’s an evening you won’t be able to resist.

We are launching Chiquila as a monthly evening held in a new city across the UK taking our Tequila pilgrimage from Leicester Square in London, through Cardiff, up to Manchester, swimming over to Belfast and many more locations.

Keep an eye out on our Chiquila page coming soon for more details on how to get involved and check out the reviews from our recent guests below:


  • “Having tasted the food on offer, each paired with a tequila cocktail, I think they have certainly pulled off transporting the flavours of Mexico to a rainy London evening” – Gentleman’s Goods Blog [http://bit.ly/20IpM8x]

  • “Chiquito always seems to have a busy fun vibe when I’ve been before and last night no different. We tried on the sombreros, drank tequila, took silly selfies… and had some good honest Mexican food” – Ms Food Blogger [http://bit.ly/1QNFmdB]

  • “The drinks are all about tequila. There’s beers-a-plenty for the less adventurous but the tequila menu from Jose Cuervo and others is a revelation for those who think this agave spirit is all about salt licked from the back of the hand and lime wedges” – Jonathan R Jones, Vada Magazine [http://bit.ly/1QoqB70]

  • "Inspired by an in-depth research trip to Mexico’s buzzing streets and markets, the team have injected some artisanal flair into their repertoire... From lip-smacking Spicy Chicken Crispy Tacos, Sweet Chorizo Croquettes with sweet Jalapeño Jelly to a piquant Chipolte Cod Loin Taco with sweet Pink Onion, Chiquitos have really upped their gastro game" - The Metropolist [http://bit.ly/1WwfdEg]

Feeling Mexy this Valentine's?

February is the mexiest time of the year and we’re ready to help you share it with your amor. Our exclusive menu is full of tempting Street Food dishes, ideal for sharing (or not sharing… we don’t judge) whilst our Tequila cocktails are perfectly paired to compliment those Mexican flavours, did we mention they’re brand new and not on our drinks menu yet?!, and then of course to finish we have our famous churros so you can end your night on a sweet note.

Time to make it mexy guapa! xoxo

Our Fresh New Menu

It’s finally here! Our latest adventure in flavour and freshness is ready to be discovered.

Over a year ago our chefs took a special trip to the heart of Mexico to take inspiration from the street markets and local cuisines, looking for those authentic ingredients and recipes we’ve fallen in love with.

Not only have we created amazing new dishes such as our Piña Colada Prawns, Spiced Coconut Chicken, Mexican Paella, Hero Burger and Street Food options, but we’ve also improved lots of our favourites by adding in personal touches. Our succulent pulled pork is hand pulled from pork shoulder every day, whilst our southern fried chicken gets freshly crumbed with a special blend of panko crumb and spices in our kitchens, and don’t forget about the pico de gallo salsa which we chop and season ourselves!

So are you ready to discover the flavours with our fresh new menu…? See you soon amigo.

Keep an eye on Twitter and Snapchat for a chance to win.

Hola Walsall and Chesterfield!

Two lucky teams received an extra Christmas present this year in the form of a brand new restaurant to open on Boxing Day!

Our Walsall team have moved in to their new home in a great new location bringing their mexcellent service and enthusiasm with them. Good luck to all the team.

Whilst our team in Chesterfield are pumped up and settling in to another new town for Chiquito. Come on down and experience the fiesta!

Have yourself a Mexy little Christmas…

If you think Tex-Mex isn’t festive, think again. Pulled duck Tacos, Minted Lamb and Feta Burger, Texan Turkey Wrap and Chocolate Stuffed Churros; if these don’t get you in a merry mood we don’t know what will.

The two course set menu won’t break the present fund either at only £16.95 and comes with a comfy chair to rest and escape from shopping stress as standard. But don’t forget to leave space for dessert, a little extra (£3.95) for a lot more festivity without a clementine in sight.

See you soon and Feliz Navidad!
