Las Iguanas Aberdeen



When I was shopping in Aberdeen last week I decided I wanted to stop in by an Aberdeen cafe for lunch. I was looking for a quaint off-beat place but independent places don't ever seem to last long here and after a hunt around the Belmont Street area I decided to give in and go towards Union Square. The restaurants in Union Square are the usual cluster of TGI Fridays et al that you get in 'quay' areas but one or two different ones had popped up, including the Latin American restaurant Las Iguanas.



Having been impressed by the prices and the vegetarian selection (rare for a Mexican place) I opted for their lunch deal where you can get a slightly smaller portion, and add in a starter either for £1.50 or £2.90. It was quite empty whilst I was in and I spent some time ooh-ing over the menu as the selection was so good it took me a while to decide which dishes to get.


For starters, I opted for the veggie empada with a brie & mango filling with corn & sweet chili salsa.

And for mains I went for, the "the full enchilada" with roast butternut squash, roasted red peppers, spinach & gooey cheese. I know it doesn't look that appetising in the picture but believe me it was delish! 

After all this I was still hungry and having been impressed by the meal so far I decided to have a sneaky look on their dessert menu. They had quite a 'mainstream' dessert selection but I settled on the 'Affogato Cubano' which was mainly because it had some rum in it!


There was also a really impressive drinks section with all sorts of rums but I was there by myself, during the afternoon, having a three course meal and taking photos of it so decided I probably shouldn't draw too much attention to myself. But I would love to return to this place - it looks like it would be perfect for a birthday meal or just a good place to come with friends in the evening.

  1. This looks lovely. I'm getting a bit more into Mexican food as before it wasn't really a strong point. Your dessert looks gorgeous.
