Launching alongside the App on the 24th of September, the Autumn menu boasts an array of finger-licking starters & tapas dishes, as well as a selection of flavourful mains from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Cuba & beyond! Whilst you choose from the main menu, the new Tequeños await; a delicious and popular Venezuelan street snack; cheese filled fried bread sticks served with chipotle butter.

From the tapas menu, diners can expect some true Latin American staples including Pork Pibil Tacos (Pulled roasted pork belly in an achiote, oregano, orange and lime glaze), Pisco Pork Belly with smoked sweet potato and Amarillo puree or plant-based Winter Ceviche (Smoked sweet potato & amarillo purée, Aztec grains, pickled vegetables, avocado aioli, sweet chilli pepper pearls, candied seeds & sweet potato crisps).

Zip over to Brazil for the return of the Peanut and Prawn Maracanã, prawns in a peanut, chilli, lime and coconut sauce served up in a sourdough bread bowl, inspired by the famous Rio stadium. Las Iguanas’ famous Brazilian curries are cooked from scratch and the newest addition is the plant-based Bahian Jackfruit Curry inspired by the regional flavours of North East Brazil; roasted pulled jackfruit and ethically-sourced palm hearts in a spiced coconut and tomato sauce. Jet over to Cuba and take a bite of the new Fiesta Ensalada; Butternut squash with mixed leaves, carrot curls, pink pickled onions, pickled beetroot slices, oven-dried tomatoes and fresh avocado, tossed in a poppy seed dressing.

It isn’t just the main menu that has received a seasonal makeover! Diners will be delighted to know that Las Iguanas’ sinfully delicious dessert menu also has two new additions. Make sure you leave room for a Pornstar Sundae (a twist on the classic cocktail; mango sorbet & coconut non-dairy ice cream with a passion fruit, prosecco & vanilla purée, crushed meringue, fresh mango & passion fruit, vegan option also available) or Banana Sticky Toffee Pudding (Warm banana sticky toffee pudding with toffee sauce, fried plantain & vanilla ice cream), as they are sure to sweep you off your feet!

Fans of Las Iguanas’ Bottomless Brunch will also be happy to hear that you can now order dishes from the Brunch menu separately on Saturdays and Sundays. Two new arrivals have landed; Breakfast Burritos, your brunch wrapped up in a tasty tortilla, and Huevos Divorciados, a Mexican classic of two eggs served on blue corn tortillas, crushed avocado and red tomato and green tomatillo salsas.

Las Iguanas’ impressive selection of cocktails and mocktails are available 2 for 1 all day, every day!* Sip on one of the award-winning Caipirinhas, the famous Brazilian classic made with Las Iguanas’ own Magnifica Cachaça, or new concoctions like Flamingo-A-Go-Go: Olmeca Altos Blanco 100% Agave Tequila mixed with Malibu, Funkin strawberry, sherbet, lime, coconut water and lemonade served in a kitsch pink flamingo. Our master Cachaça-maker’s favourite cocktail is also on the menu for the first time; Joao Luiz de Faria loves the Shiny Nail made with Magnifica Aged Cachaça, Drambuie and orange, invented especially for him on one of his visits to the UK. Sign up for a Cachaça Masterclass to learn more about the favourite spirit of Brazil.

As always, giving back to the community remains a central theme on Las Iguanas’ agenda, which is why they work with the LATA Foundation to support grass-roots projects throughout Latin America and Mexico. The charity transforms lives, working with social & environmental initiatives. Las Iguanas is actively working to support projects such as ‘Projeto Vidançar’ (Rio de Janeiro) & ‘Kids Saving The Rainforest’ (Costa Rica). Las Iguanas will also be supporting End Youth Homelessness again this year with a contribution for every Christmas party booking. Dining at Las Iguanas not only guarantees you a delicious and tasty meal, but leaves you safe in the knowledge that you are part of something much bigger.
