Chimichanga Milton Keynes

 Stuart and I love trying out different restaurants we mainly do this on a special occasion such as our birthdays or our anniversary. 
I've never really mentioned it on my blog before because the last year or so we have
been going to the same restaurants and I've decided to start trying new places
 again. 

My main favourite places to eat have been Italian restaurants but my favourite cuisine has to be Mexican.
I've never actually ate in a proper Mexican restaurant before though, I have however eaten at restaurants that 
do a few Mexican dishes such as Fajitas which are my ultimate favourite. 

So when I was asked if I wanted to visit Chimichanga in Milton Keynes on a Saturday 
me and Stuart were rather excited.



On arrival we were greeted by who think was the manager who took us to our table.
Visually we were very impressed with the decor inside the restaurant and
I wish I had taken a photo of the Mexican sombreros dotted around the place. 
The restaurant is very clean and modern looking which is a plus in my books. 


Once we had ordered our drinks we had a look at the menu to choose our starter and main.
When our drinks arrived I was very impressed that we were given ice glasses as the weather was so hot and we really needed to cool down, as we had a journey to Milton Keynes on a very hot stuffy bus. 


CHILLI FOCACCIA, £2.95

Both me and Stuart chose to go for a vegetarian starter each and as Stuart 
is a fan of anything with a bit of spice he chose the Chilli Focaccia.
which is toasted focaccia bread with chilli flakes drizzled with chilli oil. 
He really enjoyed his starter and it was finished pretty fast. 

NACHOS, £5.50
I am a huge fan of nachos but can honestly say that these were the best nachos I have ever eaten! 
The tortilla chips were served with fresh salsa, guacamole and melted cheese. 
 It was a great size portion too and I found myself sharing some with Stuart as they were really filling.

GRANDE QUESADILLA, £9.95

Stuart chose to go for the Grande Quesadilla for his main which is 
a baked flour tortilla sandwich drizzled with sour cream, served with Mexican rice and
chipotle chilli sauce with a choice of filling which Stuart had BBQ pulled pork, cheese and salsa. 

CHIMICHANGA, £12.50 

I went for the Chimichanga which is a flour tortilla fried golden brown with cheese, sautéed onions and pepperswith a choice of filling, I chose to go for the sliced fajita steak. The Chimichanga is then garnished with sour cream, chives, guacamole and tortilla croutons. The dish is served with Mexican rice and black beans. 

SEASONED HOUSE FRIES, £3.25

We also ordered fries for on the side which was really lovely. 

We really would love to have gone for dessert, however  we were stuffed from the starter and main.
Although I did leave a lot of my main I can assure you it was because I was just too full and for no other reason, as it was one of the best meals I have ever eaten. 

I was very impressed on the service the drinks and meals arrived within pretty good time,
no long waits like you get in some restaurants. 

The staff were all lovely and polite and offered us advice on what sides and desserts to choose
from so next time we go I will certainly be giving them a try. 

After we had finished our meal the manager thanked us for our visit and so yes we will be eating there again in the future. 

Have you ever been to Chimichanga? Do you like Mexican food?

  5. I love Mexican food...although there's no Mexican restaurants where I live in England, I'm lucky enough to make regular visits to Los Angeles so get loads of authentic Mexican food (I gain so much weight on my trips, but it's totally worth it!) :)
