Bar Amigo can be found in the bustling centre of Hitchin, one of the Chilterns’ most charming market towns. The restaurant’s interior is warm and inviting, with an exposed brick wall contrasting perfectly with the brightly coloured furniture – the decor blends the traditional style of a cosy British establishment with the fun and colour of Latin America.

The menu, however, is as un-British as they come. Kick things off with chilli poppers or delicious, generously filled empanadas – there’s even a vegetarianfriendly option of black beans, corn and cheese. If you’re visiting with a group, start by sharing a taco tray – the Mexican smoked chipotle chicken, and the lemon, garlic and coriander prawns are some of the most popular fillings. You’ll find all of your favourite Mexican classics – fajitas, burritos, enchiladas – on the main menu, as well as plenty of regional specialities. The Peruvian dish of whole sea bass oven-baked with lemon and thyme and served with mango salsa, spicy rice and lemon is a real hit with seafood-lovers, while the fejoada de puerco from Brazil will satisfy the carnivores in your group. This rich stew comprises chorizo, garlic sausage and pork shoulder, cooked slowly in red wine with red peppers and black beans. Served with orange wedges and a coconut crumb, this is a really special dish.

Bar Amigo’s bar area can be hired for private functions, and a buffet can be prepared by the talented kitchen team.
