AWC71's review of Chiquitos

★★★★☆

“ By a twist of fajita”

Written on: 23/01/2019 by AWC71 (3 reviews written)

Chiquito
Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent

What is it that annoys us so much about theme restaurants? Apart, of course, that they think it's OK to charge £3.99 for a can of diet coke.

We tend to associate them with all things corporate and bland, walk in through the door and you could be anywhere; Hanley or Havana, it hardly matters. Perhaps we should get over ourselves, quirky and niche is all well and good, until it tips over into pretension.

Walk in through the door of the Hanley branch and you are in theme eatery heaven, as you are in any other establishment along the bustling enclave that is The Hive. That though is a good rather than a bad thing.

The menu is simple, made up of Mexican favorites that can be encountered in any supermarket. Here though they are cooked well and presented attractively. The staff are attentive without being fussy and the decor is on the right side of authentic without working the theme too hard.

Does all this equate to an experience comparable to dining out in Mexico City? That is something for hipsters to think about as they stroke their beards. My own guess is probably not, but if you're looking for good food in pleasant surroundings then say viva to visiting soon.
