Las Iguanas - Grub Recommendation

OOOSH YEAH

I’d suggest next time you fancy South American food in Newcastle then Chuchos is a must. Iguanas is owned by Cafe Rouge. It’s passable as a place but I once ate there and the ‘mexican Tacos’ were made with flour tortillas. 😫

Chuchos. Ah man the tacos are amazing. Their ‘Tacos Dorados De Pollo’ are the best mexican food I’ve ever tasted outside of Mexico. 3 tacos for £9.

Everything is made on site and fresh as fuck unlike Iguanas which is a bought in shop owned by big business. Seriously support small independents doing their own thing.

Las iguanas. Literally in every new city centre development in England it seems. Depressing how every fucking town is the same. Anyway food is actually half decent as you say despite the rant :lol:

Byker or Jesmond?

I've never been but will try.

Iguanas was awful but only had snacks at bar.

You need to go to La Casa in Grainger Market. Wine and meat and cheese platter is amazing.

Was in the one in York a few weeks back and the bait looked shite
To be honest I go into any of these las iguanas, cafe rouge, chimichanga, zizzi’s etc with the lowest of expectations. You know that most of it is made elsewhere in some
central kitchen and shipped in. It’s horrendous anarl that these chains, plus bar chains like all bar one, pitcher and piano, brewdog, spoons etc, then your coffee shops of costa and Starbucks on every corner make up most of the city high streets in England. Honestly Sunderland should be thankful it can’t even seem to attract most of these to be honest :lol:

Either. They’re both as good as one another. I’ve just got a few tacos on the way home. Try the dorados. They’re superb.

I go in La Casa all the time. You tried his mates wines? Brilliant like. Small batch and unusual.

It’s sort of like ‘extra special’ supermarket ready meals.
