Chiquito - East Didsbury
The Chiquito philosophy centres around a passion for food made using only the tastiest of ingredients. The team offers a first-rate experience for all diners, whether for the lunchtime brigade looking for a light bite, or a couple or group looking for a leisurely evening's dining. Sizzling specials, Tex Mex favourites, burgers with bite and many other popular Mexican dishes make up the menu, meaning there's something for everyone - and staff are always on hand to aid your decision. All that's left for you to do is soak up the vibrant, friendly atmosphere and, of course, tuck into some fresh, flavour-packed food.
Start with chilli poppers perhaps - breaded jalapeños filled with an irresistible cream cheese sauce and served with a sweet chilli jelly - or chorizo and gem lettuce wraps with sweetcorn, jalapeños and a pot of lime-and-tequila-flavour sauce for that extra kick. Succulent chicken served over fajita vegetables and pink onions is a fine choice for your main. Chicken and chorizo skewers also feature, and the fully loaded burrito packs a punch, as does the fiery chilli chicken, enchiladas and veggie, chicken, pork and beef chilli quesadillas. Maybe you'll crave a beef chilli burger or a rack of lip-smacking ribs. Otherwise, you can always plump for a formidable, super-juicy steak with fries or spiced Mexican rice, or a fresh and enticing citrus-dressed salad of blackened salmon, Cajun spices and roasted veg. The children's menu is a great feature too - with plenty for the kids to get stuck into, including the kids-eat-free breakfast. Finish with classic churros with cinnamon sugar, toffee popcorn brownie or banana taquito wrapped in a cinnamon tortilla. You'll want to wash it all down with something suitably exotic, so why not choose from the selection of expertly mixed alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails? Or go all out with a cheeky shot of tequila, and kick off an evening of revelry the Mexican way.
