Chiquito - Livingston
From the delicious Mexican food and refreshing cocktails to the fun and vibrant atmosphere, Chiquito provides the perfect setting in which to relax and dine or get the fiesta started. The menus here are packed with Mexican and American dishes to suit all tastes – from mild to wild.
Start with chilli poppers – breaded jalapeños filled with irresistible cream cheese sauce and served with sweet chilli jelly – or chicken wings tossed in your choice of piri piri, hot habanero or barbecue sauce and served with cooling sour cream. For a fresh and wholesome taste of Mexico, try the street-style burrito: a soft tortilla packed with jalapeño cheese sauce, refried beans, mozzarella, lettuce and Mexican-spiced rice, with a choice of beef chilli, spicy chicken, barbecue pulled pork or hot habanero mushrooms. The baked cod loin topped with sweet mango glaze and served with chilli and lime broccoli, citrus crunch potatoes and sweet cranberry salsa is a fine choice too. You might crave one of the lip-smacking burgers, like the Hero burger – a 5oz beefburger topped with slow-cooked pulled pork, chorizo slices, red jalapeños, Monterey Jack cheese, barbecue sauce and chipotle mayo, served in a soft brioche bun with sweet potato wedges or skin-on fries, with homemade slaw on the side.
The selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails at Chiquito is outstanding. Why not try a Chilli and Coriander Margarita or the Old Thyme Honey Daiquiri. Alternatively, go all out with a cheeky shot of Tequila, and kick off an evening of revelry in Mexican style.
Offering brunch and lunchtime options as well as the legendary main menu, Chiquito guarantees an enjoyable visit at any time of day. If you stay for dessert, be sure to try the churros dusted with cinnamon sugar and served with fresh strawberries and a pot of chocolate sauce for dipping. You could also opt for an indulgent dessert cocktail like the Tiramisu Martini: coffee, vanilla, amaretto and Bailey’s Irish cream, with a sprinkle of cocoa powder – it’s heaven in a glass.
