Las Iguanas is set to open its latest site at the BH2 development in Bournemouth.
It is hoped Bournemouth will provide a strong trading-ground for the brand. The vibrant restaurant décor reflects the team’s most recent travels to South America.
The restaurant has an ‘invigorating space’ in which guests can relax in comfy booths against a backdrop of sunshine shades of yellow, sky blue and turquoise whilst also admiring the big bold graphics dancing across the walls inspired by the colourful selection of street art in Buenos Aires.
The brand’s chefs look to bring trademark flavours to life in every single dish by using the highest quality, freshest ingredients to create delicious plates packed with bold flavours. All the food is cooked in house from scratch by chefs.
The new menu additions include Bolinhos de Caranguejo –Crab, Prawn and Potato Croquettes – and the Cuban Sandwich, consisting of roasted Pork Belly, Pulled Pork, Emmental Cheese and Ham with Sweet Mustard and Green Pickle Relish.
Recently, Las Iguanas claimed it suffered £500,000 in lost business as a result of negative publicity that followed a damning hygiene report into a branch that it operates in Liverpool.
Live cockroaches and mouse droppings were found in the kitchen of its branch in the city last year. A court today heard that the mouse droppings were discovered under racks containing chopping boards and that food debris and shredded paper provided a food source for pests.
