Our Table

Fast food, slow cooked

While our food might be fast, the preparation is slow. Slow-cooked, to be precise. In fact, your order began taking shape long before that mid-afternoon Mexican craving even popped into your head! Our locally sourced meats are slowly stewed in fresh herbs and spices, infusing them with flavour and depth, and we spend hours preparing the sauces, salsas and other extras that complement our dishes.

The specials are where our chefs really showcase their creativity, a lot of work goes into making sure we always have an innovative selection of exciting new dishes for you to try. We have hundreds of cookery books, which the kitchen team use as a jumping off point to develop new ways of preparing traditional Mexican recipes. Lots of tasting later, and the end result is a specials board bursting with inventive yet authentic dishes.

However, the real secret to truly mouthwatering Mexican food is chillies, and lots of them. But don’t panic – they have an entirely unfair reputation for being hot. In fact, chillies come in a huge range of heats, and we use them to create amazingly complex, layered flavours that make every mouthful unique. Most of our meals are fine for those with a milder palate, and you can kick it up a notch by adding one of our spicy salsas. Really, it’s in our interest to clearly mark our hottest dishes – if you burn your mouth, you won’t be able to tell people about La Choza! We’re also proud to say that the Observer Food Monthly Awards named us one of the UK’s best ‘cheap eats’. Great food shouldn’t cost the earth, so being affordable is one of the key La Choza principles. Our food is also suitable for vegans, vegetarians and coeliacs – everyone is catered for at La Choza!
