Chiquitos at Metrocentre


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.

I Cooked & Ate Amazing Pasta


I was in the mood for some pasta today and thought I’d make the extra effort of taking my time and using some nice ingredients to make it taste like heaven.

Poured some water into the little pot and added some salt and pepper, waited for water to boil. Once the water was boiling I added the pasta and stirred every 4-5 minutes to keep it from sticking together.

After about 10-15 minutes the pasta was softer and bigger. I drained all the water out of the pasta and then added some Dolmio Original. Once the sauce started to heat up and mix with the pasta I stirred it a few times and added some corriander.

I put the lid on the pot to let it steam up while I grated some cheese. After pouring the pasta onto a plate I added the cheese on top.

Every mouthful was very nice and just heaven. This was another level of feeling while eating this delicious dish.

Day I Watched Skyfall & Went To Coast to Coast


Monday 29th October 2012

I had an amazing day when I went and watched Skyfall, movie was just epic. I won’t spoil it for everyone by saying what I thought about it. However this movie is what everyone has been waiting for in the James Bond series. Maybe the movie that actually matches the classic Bond movies and Daniel Craig who reminds you a bit of Sean Connery with his intensity and chilled out remarks.

Me and this friend went to Coast to Coast after we watched the movie and I really enjoyed the service and food. My friend however had a different opinion and thought it was too posh and english. I like visiting different places and keeping my life interesting. Nandos was my favourite place for many years when at college and university. After many years you get bored with the same menu and place, nice to try something different and not have a boring routine.

Overall I had a good experience watching the movie and having dinner at the nice restaurant but it was ruined by my friend not liking anything. Throughout the day there was nothing we agreed upon and all I heard was criticism about things I loved, e.g. The Simpsons, shopping/clothes, Apple and etc.
