SquareMeal Review of
Las Iguanas Royal Festival Hall
Fun, fun, fun is the order of the day at Las Iguanas, the still-independent national chain of Latin American eateries. If the promise of ‘carnival atmosphere’ & ‘intoxicating Latin rhythms’
sounds a little heady, fear not, for readers seem to enjoy the experience in spite of themselves. ‘Ideal for families’ but ‘fun for couples’ is a feat few restaurants achieve, but these colourful,
buzzy venues don’t simply play it safe with crowd-pleasing nachos, fajitas, burgers & dulce de leche puds; they also roam around South America for lesser-known regional specialities such as
Chilean pasteles (sweet potato & sweetcorn pie), Peruvian braised lamb & Brazilian moqueca (coconut curry). Everything is cooked to order & there are deals aplenty. Happy-hour prices
help as exotic cocktails get things going for a fiesta every night.
