“We are particularly proud of our new vegan menu. It stays true to our core objectives by driving innovation, accessibility and fun. Having guest choice at the heart and understanding growing trends, this menu allows Chiquito to be more accessible to guests that seek vegan options,” Angelo Gabrilatsou, Chiquito’s Managing Director commented to Vegan Food & Living.
“We are very fortunate that Mexican food lends itself very well to vegan and our new additions bring amazing tastes and textures that will appeal not only to vegans but to all our guests. We are incredibly excited about this menu and firmly believe it puts us at the forefront of vegan dining in the UK. As always, innovating and delivering the best in Mexican cuisine is at the heart of everything we do.”
