Mexican restaurant chain Chiquito has launched a major new breakfast menu across its 78 UK outlets – including two vegan options.

The Vegan Sizzler is an animal-free take on the classic Full English, featuring a hash brown, vegan seitan sausages, baked beans, flat mushrooms and seasoned tomato as well as scrambled tofu.

The second option is the Breakfast Burrito, which is stuffed with hash browns, tomato, beans, vegan cheddar, vegan scrambled eggs, vegan sausages, and brown sauce. This dish is also available as a deep-fried ‘chimichanga’ version.

‘Biggest improvement’

“We are massively excited about the launch of our new breakfast menu as it adds freshness, authenticity and loads of flavor, allowing our guests to be as adventurous as they want,” Chiquito managing director Angelo Gabrilatsou said in a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living.

“Both the breakfast and the new kids menu stay true to our core objectives by driving innovation, accessibility and fun and as having guest choice at the heart, whilst understanding growing trends, this menu allows Chiquito to be more accessible to guests that seek vegan options.

“The last 18 months we’ve focused on improving the quality of our food and service whilst dialing up the fun that we are famous for and believe this is our biggest improvement yet.”
