Another fine offering from the fabulous Las Iguanas chain of Latin restaurants comes Las Iguanas – The O2. The Latin vibe has arrived at London’s famous O2 stadium, home to some of the best live music shows featuring some of the world’s biggest music stars. Las Iguanas fits right into the party vibe of the O2, with its carnival atmosphere, perfect for enjoying a great meal out with friends or family.
Step inside Las Iguanas – The O2 and find yourself transported to Latin America, with the rich and vibrant colours, beautiful wooden mosaic tables made from sustainable Brazilian wood and authentic Brazilian bits and pieces. The menu is a wonderful fusion of age old recipes spanning Latin America, Spain and Portugal and is full of taste and flavour.
The classic Las Iguanas dish has to be Xinxim, a Brazilian lime chicken in a creamy crayfish and peanut sauce served with rice, fine green beans and sweet plantain. This dish is said to be one of Pelé’s favourites. The tapas are brilliant for sharing with tasty bites like the lamb empanada (homemade pasties filled with slow braised lamb, smoky chilli and garlic and served with fresh papaya and mint salsa. Save some space for dessert, it is said that the chocolate fudge cake is the best in town.
