3rd June 2020
The restaurant successfully creates dishes from around the world. The 15 new additions to the menu are inspired by Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Cuba and beyond. The new menu includes a range of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options, so you’ll be spoilt for choice!
We headed to the Liverpool One location to try the new menu, so read on for our thoughts on the new Autumn menu.
The Vibe and Service
We visited Las Iguanas in the early evening, and we loved the colourful venue and how perfect it was for a cosy Autumn night.
Our servers were lovely and talked us through the menu and how we were able to pick dishes from several countries, as Las Iguanas offers a range of cuisines all in one place.
I loved how we were asked if we had any allergies, which was great to hear as I usually inform the staff myself. Due to my nut allergy, we were given an allergy folder to check the ingredients in the dishes.
It was also great to see that vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options were on a separate menu, so those with a dietary restriction were able to look at everything they could eat rather than wasting time scrounging the menu to find dishes they could have.
We would like to thank our waitresses Gabi and Hayley who made our evening so wonderful!
We opted for the Tropical Gimlet (£9.95) with our starters and were so surprised with how refreshing it tasted.
The Tropical Gimlet was a blend of Las Iguanas x Poetic License Tropical Gin, passion fruit, lime, pineapple and sherbet.
Later on with the meal we couldn’t resist a Watermelon Margarita (£9.95) which was my friends favourite cocktail, and with 2-4-1 cocktails we couldn’t say no.
Don’t forget Las Iguanas have 2-4-1 cocktails all day every day!
Fried cheese or fried chicken? Why not both!
We loved the new tapas and ‘while you choose’ additions. ‘Tequenos’ (£4.25) is a Venezuelan dish – cheese filled fried bread sticks that are definitely a cheese lovers dream!
The Brazilian Fried Chicken (£5.50) was also delicious, and despite the spicy crumb, it wasn’t too spicy! The Amarillo aioli drizzled on top was also a great pairing.
For mains, my friend had the Bahian Coconut Chicken (£14.95) from the Brazilian menu – which entails of chicken breast pieces with coriander and cayenne in a creamy coconut sauce and served with spring onion rice and greens.
The presentation was also amazing and with a candle underneath this meant the food stayed hot for longer. The curry reminded me of my grandma’s chicken curry which was a wonderful surprise and it was an excellent dish for a cold evening!
I opted for the New Copacabana Burger (£11.95) on the Argentine menu. The burger was massive, which was great, the chicken was very juicy and it was excellent with the tomato gherkin mayo. It’s served with a choice of fries or salad and the fries were golden with an excellent crisp!
Although we were both too full for dessert, the new dessert menu was certainly tempting.
The new additions included the Pornstar Sundae (£5.95) which is mix of mango sorbet and coconut ice-cream with a vanilla, passion fruit and vanilla puree, topped meringue and fresh fruit.
For a winter warmer you could have the Banana Sticky Toffee Pudding (£4.95), comprised of a warm sticky toffee pudding, toffee sauce and plantain, served with vanilla ice cream.
