The New Chiquito Vegan Menu

New Chiquito Vegan Menu Burrito v6

Last Friday we headed to London to try the new Chiquito vegan menu. Launched just a few weeks ago, Chiquito’s plant-based selection includes exotic proteins from around the world such as jackfruit, banana blossom, palm hearts and soya protein Oumph! to create a fiesta of taste-exploding vegan foods.

In central London, Chiquito is located in buzzing Leicester Square. The inside of the restaurant is large and spacious and there is a also small terrace at the front if you prefer dining outside.

Featuring Oumph!, Oatly cream and Violife cheese, the new Chiquito vegan menu contains four vegan starters, five main courses with side dishes, three vegan desserts and even a vegan drinks list including beer, cocktails and wine.

New Chiquito Vegan Menu Nachos

After ordering vegan margaritas and wine, we shared some tasty vegan nachos for starters topped with guacamole, salsa and Violife cheese. With a slight sourness and a creamy taste, Oatly crème fraîche really works a treat here as does the melted Violife vegan cheddar-style cheese. Thumbs up all around.

For mains we picked the Oumph! Vegaritto and the Jackfruit Baja Tacos.

Oumph! chunks add a lot of flavours and heartiness to the vegaritto. This is a filling dish with a deliciously smokey taste. It was a bit dry though and would probably benefit from a bit more sauce.

Topped with Violife vegan cheddar-style cheese the tacos were also very tasty. The chilli could do with bigger chunks of jackfruits to make it a bit more substantial.

The generous portions left us too full for dessert but I have got my eyes on the Chocolate Coconut Lava Cake (as well as the Banana Blossom dishes) for my next visit.
