One of the Best Meals I've Ever Had! Chimichanga, Milton Keynes, Restaurant Review

chimichanga review, chimichanga, chimichanga mk, chimichanga mk review, mexican mk, mexican restaurant mk

When I think about it.. I have actually eaten at a lot of places, but as most people often do I find myself continuously steering my choice of eatery towards one particular taste and in my case, it's Italian.

Desperate to break the habit and venture on to trying something a little different we found ourselves at the front door of Chimichanga in Milton Keynes. Inspired by classic Latin-American, Tex-Mex and Mexican flavours it claimed to be a little part of Mexico in the UK!

First impressions of the restaurant visually were brilliant. In fact, the very first thought that crossed my mind was 'Why have I not been here before?'. The restaurant layout and the 'look' as a whole ticked a lot of boxes for me as soon as I walked through the door - it's clean and modern looking but it has real character. The restaurant is brought to life by the little touches; mexican sombreros dotted about the place and other Mexican-inspired ornamentals add nicely to the experience. So do the Mexican beers that are available to order. The assistant-manager (who I cannot praise highly enough for his friendly attitude and professionalism) informed that the restaurant is soon to be renovated but even without that, this is a lovely looking place to eat.

Food wise; there's probably nothing that I can say that will truly tell you how good it was. So I'll say this - it was one of the best meals we've ever had. I'd never tried Mexican before and I wasn't expecting to love it. As stated above; Italian restaurants are much more my thing, but our meals were beyond good. To sum it up, the food was better than anything I could have imagined.

The 'veggie sampler'
Chimichanga more than catered for us veggies - as a starter we had the 'Veggie Sampler' to share. This was priced at £10.25, which works out at about a fiver each which was absolutely brilliant for what we got. As you can see from the photos, this was quite the impressive starter! Especially for a vegetarian who is used to 'a bit of garlic bread' as the veggie option in most restaurants. I say with certainty that this was the most impressive vegetarian starter I've ever eaten or seen.

Inside the 'veggie sampler'!
For the main course I went for the vegetarian bean chilli, again this was just beautiful and for dessert I had something called 'Churros', which was recommended to me by the assistant manager (thank you so much for this recommendation!). These were warm Mexican doughnut rings dusted in cinnamon sugar with a sticky “Dulche de Leche” caramel sauce and vanilla ice-cream. I cannot tell you how nice these were - it was hands down the best dessert I have ever had! Can you see a pattern forming here?

'Churros' - the nicest dessert I've ever tasted!
The family that I went with for this meal including two meat eaters, were all in complete agreement with me - there was no denying that this was one of the best meals that we'd all ever had! We will absolutely being going back and I absolutely cannot wait until we do!

Would I recommend Chimichanga to others - without hesitation!

Oh and did I mention that they do the nicest cocktails ever? ;)

  3. Oh I can't believe you'd not had Mexican before. I Love Italian too but I think Mexican is my favourite, its just so flavourful.

    Mmm I love Churros! Those are so unusual though...they're usually really long, not rounded. That looks like an easier way to eat them!!
