Myself and Matthew were kindly invited to the brand spanking new Las Iguanas nestled on the rivers edge in my very own home town of Norwich. Never one to say no to food, we were there in a heart beat. I'd seen Las Iguanas before, looking hip around London and always wondered what it had to offer, so here was my chance....
Latin food is it's game, serving a variety of spice infused delights such as Burritos, Nachos, sloppy meats and then a huge array of exotic cocktails. Having a palette for all of these, I knew I was in for a treat.
First up, we were greeted with a cocktail making lesson by the company's very own Cocktail expert (he was there from head office - lucky us) to try make a signature drink. This is something that you can arrange to do in your local resturant, it is especially great for parties.
We went for the Caipirinha, a classic. Lime, sugar, their very own Cachaca and lots of ice. Though simple to make, it was really fun and super delicious. I accidentally made mine too boozey as it seems I cant count to 5 quick enough (the amount of time your supposed to hold the Cachaca over the glass for).
|"THERE'S SO MUCH TO CHOOSE FROM?!"|
For starter I opted for the Chirizo. Huge chunks of rich flavoursome meat swimming in a tangy tomato sauce, served with bread to dunk. Matthew Went for nachos with shredded steak to pour on top. I ended up pouring my Chorizo in also and we shared a huge meaty crunchy bowl with added cheeses and sauces for ultimate awesomeness
We both went for the Burritos for main. Absolutley packed with meat and served with a side salad rice and a salsa/ sour cream dip. What I've really appreciated is how full of flavour every aspect was. Everything had a purpose and delivered.
To finish - of course - Churros
Thanks again for having us. I have nothing but great things to say about Las Iguanas, already I have told everyone I know about it and will definately be the new family meal or date night destination. The food was exquisite, the cocktails very generous and all for a very reasonable price. This is'nt the last you've seen of me.
