Recently I took my mum to a birthday meal at Las Iguanas, the place came highly recommended for their ‘vegan and vegetarian’ menu so I was keen to check it out!
Upon entering we requested the special menus and made our choices. My vegan starter was the Guacamole and nachos, good to note that you mix your own with fresh avocado so can leave out the lemon or chilli if you don’t like them! Portion was plentiful for sharing too.
For my main I ordered the Bahia Moqueca but for me, this is where I became slightly disappointed as my dish, being a ‘vegan’ Bahia, didn’t have many of the items on the menu. I understand vegan options being vegetarian options with the cheese omitted but would you really expect Coconut Faro-fa sprinkles and Plantain fritter to be not available unless cooked in butter! It was quite disappointing for an option being marked vegan but then getting modified to such an extent it didn’t resemble the description printed on the menu. I would have liked to be forewarned. So be warned that the vegan menu options are all just incomplete vegetarian options, if you are not used to veganising menu options independently then the menus might be a nice touch however I didn’t think it was worth the huge buzz on vegan forums.
Nonetheless the dish was delicious and filling and my omni and veggie dining companions also enjoyed their meals. If you like Mexican food then Las Iguanas is worth a visit. We were also very impressed with the service, cleanliness and waiting time whilst in Las Iguanas- always good to hear. Staff were polite and friendly and the birthday girl even got a cocktail on the house!
