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.
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. xx
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.
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.
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
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.
To celebrate National Breakfast Week (24th- 30th January) we’ll be giving away an amazing 100 free morning making breakfasts! Whether you’re a fan of the sizzle, craving something sweet, or looking for a bit of light loveliness, we know a great brekkie sets you up for a fiesta of a day. Keep an eye on Twitter and Snapchat for a chance to win.
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!
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!
