Family Friendly Restaurants – Las Iguanas new Spring MenuMarch 17, 2016
The kids menu came on the back of a fantastic folded paper activity sheet that featured Shaun the Sheep. Some of the kids menu items were not very exciting with the standard chicken, fish, pizza, macaroni cheese and burger however they did also offer a variety of tacos and quesadillas although both girls opted for the cheese pizza.
We wanted to sample the new items on the menu so we chose the Fiesta Espanada (Roasted butternut squash, mixed leaves, carrot, cucumber, salsa criolla, smoky roasted tomatoes & fresh avocado, tossed in a poppy seed dressing. Topped with toasted pumpkin seeds, charred corn & roquito peppers), Dadinhos (crispy cubes of smoked cheese served with a sticky chilli jam), Ceviche (which is described as Sustainable raw white fish cured in “Tiger’s milk”; a lime, ginger & Amarillo chilli dressing, with carrot, pink pickled onion, roquito pepper drops & topped with coriander & sweet potato crisps), nachos and Havana club & Jerk BBQ glazed pork ribs (pork ribs covered in a sticky rum glaze, topped with crispy onion & chilli). We also had sweet potato fries and patatas bravas on the side.
The fiesta ensalada was full of flavour, crunchy and fresh. The patatas bravas took me back to memories in a spanish cafe with an authentic flavoured sauce. The Ceviche was surprisingly delicious, I wasnt sure I would enoy the raw fish but decided to try it on recommendation and was really surprised as the flavours all combined really well and I loved the roquito pepper drops. The girls helped us to eat the nachos and we were really impressed with the quality of the tortilla chips which were crunchy and full of flavour. The Dadinhos were the first thing to disappear from their plate with us all enjoying the crispy cheese cubes and the chilli jam dip. The ribs meat fell of the bones and was full of flavour.
We only sampled a small amount of the dishes on the menu but we already want to go back to try some of the other items and we will now include Las Iguanas on our list of family friendly restaurants to visit when we fancy something tasty.
