Las Iguanas opens with a new summer menu bursting with Latin American classics and contemporary cooking, made fresh to order by the team of ‘proper’ chefs. Fish lovers will enjoy new additions Ceviche in tiger’s milk with sweet potato crisps, pan-fried Sea Bass Achiote and a traditional Moqueca de Piexe mild Brazilian curry with coconut and fresh tomato sauce. Ribs take on a Cuban twist with a sticky Havana Club glaze and there is a rainbow of colour in the Fiesta Ensalada with butternut, avocado, roquito peppers and charred corn. It’s sunshine on a plate.
For those with a sweet tooth the desserts are characteristically yummy, from Dulce de Leche Cheesecake to cinnamon dusted Churros. For a lighter end to your meal try the new Mojito Jelly with lemon & lime sorbet.
And then there are the cocktails. In the year that the Olympics hits Rio, sample the taste of Brazil with a Caipirinha or two, made from Las Iguana’s very own cachaça distilled near Rio itself! Enjoy them 2 for 1 as part of the legendary happy hour, now boasting 25 cocktails and coolers to celebrate las Iguanas’ 25th Birthday this year. Or bring plenty of friends and try the sharing cocktails served up in big skulls and kitsch pineapples.
Inside you’ll find a vibrant décor with the colours of the sea and sand, comfy booths, Latin beats and plenty of smiles. Make the most of the summer on the outside terrace where you can not only people watch but boat watch too.
