Visited on Friday 19th July 2013
Five years had passed since I last visited Chiquitos the Mexican Restaurant and Bar at Metrocentre.
Chiquitos has always been good and has an amazing atmosphere when you enter the doors and hear the Mexican tunes being played. I really did miss this restaurant and had totally forgot the tasty food, drinks and unique atmosphere it provides.
I entered the restaurant and was greeted by a friendly waiter who took me to a nice table and recommended what I should try. The first thing I did was open the drinks menu and look for any mocktails they did.
The number of mocktails they do are amazing and my aim is to try all them before 2014. I looked through the list and the ‘Mock-Jito’ caught my eye but there were so many others that looked interesting and will have to be tried in the future.
The waiter came to the table and gave me some free popcorn and I ordered the drink. Forgot to mention that I had also chosen what I wanted to eat and it was a quick choice because I wanted to eat something healthy. Hot baked wrap was my choice and it was a ‘Goats’ Cheese & Roasted Veg’ with skin on fries, coleslaw and side salad. The assumption was that it would be a small dish with small portions but how wrong was I.
Drink was amazing and refreshing in the hot weather and the food was tasty but healthy at the same time. I liked how the dish looked and tasted so healthy and the drink had fresh lime and mint leaves mixed into the big glass.
I really recommend this place to anyone who hasn’t tried Chiquitos in Metrocentre (Blue Mall) opposite Pizza Hut. Great Mexican food for all and if you assume it might be spicy place for you to visit then just order something like I did which had no spice at all. Anyways drinks can be tasty and fun to have without alcohol being added so try the mocktails on the drinks menu. I do wish I had some desert but I will next time.
