We obviously mean the beer amigo! Make Dad’s dreams come true and treat him to a feisty Mexican Blonde beer and Nachos on us*, we’re sure he’ll love it. What better way to show him you care than with a refreshing, crisp beer and a bowl full of nachos, stacked high and covered in his favourite topping… Olé for padre!
Wanted to check our menus on the move, or find your nearest Chiquito when you’re out and about? Maybe just fancied passing the time dreaming up some cocktails for a chiqui Friday evening or needed a reward for the day after? Hold on to your sombrero amigo, the Chiquito App is ready! To celebrate launching our first ever Chiquito app, we’re giving you £10 off your food bill when you sign up!*
We love a competition and this one doesn’t get more exciting! We’ve teamed up with PowerWave to host their PowerWave annual games on Sunday 26th June at our restaurant in Leicester Square. Teams of three are invited to register at the restaurant, any PowerWave gym or by getting in touch with us online. You can also sign up on the day by 10am to take part so grab those amigos and get ready for some fun!
Our favourite time of the year is back again! We know you love to #SayFreeze so this year we’re bringing back a few of your favourites as well as some brand new flavours to get the fiesta started. With the weather (hopefully!) reaching those sizzling temperatures, the Summer Sangria is refreshment goals amigo. A jumble of fruits, Merlot and lemonade has us dreaming of Mexican sands already… Or relive childhood memories of stripy ice lollies with the Texan Twister, so good we just HAD to bring it back.
To celebrate Cinco de Mayo, today we are officially launching our brand new golden beer - the Mexican Blonde! Venture off the beaten track in Mexico, and you will discover a slightly darker, richer beer. A beer that has been brewed to capture the passion and warmth of Mexican culture in every bottle. Mexican Blonde is a refreshing crisp beer brewed with pale malt and a blend of first gold and cascade hops. Mexican Blonde is light and approachable. Yet still has enough attitude to stand up to the spiciest of dishes. Go on, give our Mexican Blonde a go!
We all love a fiesta and Chiquito loves one more than most! Each year we all get together from across the country, out of our restaurants and have a great big meet up to chat about what we’ve got up to and what is still to come in the year ahead. Over 100 Managers and Support Team Members descended on London for the 2016 Chiquito Conference held in the newly opened Shoreditch Magistrate’s Court Hotel, a converted court with a couple of renovated jail cells (once holding the Cray twins!) for any naughty geckos…
Olé! Chiquila has travelled up to Cardiff this month for another evening of tequila and street food. Our guests were treated to brand new dishes with honey and habanero glazed juicy chicken skewers as well as Chimichurri skirt steak, completely mexclusive and not on our main menu yet… And of course we finished with our famous churros, because how else do you celebrate Mexican style? Next up: Thursday 5th May Leicester Square - join us for a mexclusive Cinco de Mayo themed fiesta! Here’s what a few of our lucky guests had to say about Chiquila Cardiff:
There’s always room for dessert amigos! We can’t resist the call of churros, or avoid the chewy crunchy delights of a Toffee Popcorn Brownie, and that’s before we’ve even thought about a Mexican Mess or Chilli Pineapple Thins… No fiesta is complete without something a bit chiqui though, bring on the dessert cocktails! Looks like dessert, tastes like dessert, we’re sold. Vamos!
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.
The first proper bank holiday is here amigos (we really didn’t notice that other one back in January, does it even count?)! And the best way to spend free time is with family so we’re serving up a special treat for the little ones on Easter Sunday – Kids Eat Free*! With lots of sharing options to choose from with our Sharing Starters, Paella Pans, Street Food Plates and Fajitas, there’s more than enough for everyone to find something they like. Hope to see the niños soon! *One free kids meal from the kids menu when an adult meal is purchased from the main menu.
