The bank holiday weekend is upon us! To kick start the weekend on Friday evening I, my partner in crime Mr Barrett and his mum and step dad took a trip to Chiquito's, Colchester for some Mexican delights.
Having never been here to dine I had heard good reviews about the lively atmosphere, delicious Mexican food and sombrero hats and I was not disappointed.
The restaurant itself was kitted out in accordance to the Mexican theme with Mariachi music to boot and as promised sombrero hats and stick on moustaches placed randomly around the restaurant for those lucky enough to stumble across them.
After choosing to opt for mains and desserts I chose the chicken and pulled pork fajitas, as recommended by the waiter and for dessert the trio consisting of chocolate brownie, churros and sweet pineapple pastry. The fajitas were delish and came served on a red hot plate with a range of fillings ready to assemble to my liking. Whilst portion sizes were reasonable I didn't feel hideously full, leaving just enough room for my dessert. Mr Barrett's whole rack of ribs on the other hand almost covered the table which he polished off like a speedy Gonzales. Unlike my main, my dessert was somewhat disappointing. As I went for the trio I felt as though I got leftovers from the main desserts and I wasn't giving any chocolate sauce for my churros - disaster!
All in all it was a good meal, with a decent atmosphere at a reasonable price and I would recommended taking a trip there.
After we had finished off our food and wine we headed home and went to our local (the station pub) for a few more cheeky drinks!

On Saturday once I was finished with my driving lesson I spent the whole day shopping with my older sister (known as Dingbat) who was back from Leicester for the weekend. We were in Colchester for a good few hours shopping and I came away with two new dresses and a nomtastic bag of pic-a-mix. We also broke for lunch at the recently refurbished Yates – I recommend the roster wrap!
