A few days ago we headed over to Chino Latino in London for a delicious family meal. We were mainly invited to try out the Kids menu and we have to say that we were totally impressed by both the service and the food.
On entering we were served drinks and we all opted for fruit juices. I had lychee and the children had mango while Hubs settled for Lemonade. (It was the afternoon!)
As part of the Kids eat free offer – a child under 12 can eat free with a one full paying adult dining from the a la carte menu and spending £30 or over on food and beverage.The children’s complimentary meal must be taken from the Children’s menu only and is available from 12th – 27th April.
There are some amazing dishes served up just for children like Grilled beef burger, Fish and chips, chicken bento and sticky tamarind pork ribs.
The menu draws upon the delicate flavours of China, South East Asia and modern Japan. The food is carefully complemented by a cocktail menu created by their talented mixologists using only the finest and freshest ingredients.
We decided to share starters so we chose the Calamari (£10.50 and the Wasabi prawns (£13.00). The Calamari was really tasty – crispy and with a hint of lime. The Wasabi prawns were cooked to perfection and tasted really good.
For main course, Jadyn chose the chicken teriyaki bento (£8) and she said it was delicious. It was served with jasmine rice and vegetable tempura. I tasted it too and it was quite delicious.
Ethan and Aeryn had the fish and chips (£7.50) and they enjoyed it. It must have been as Ethan cleared his plate, something that he does find hard to do. The fish was fried in Japanese breadcrumbs that gave it a lovely crispy bite.
I chose the Black Cod(£25.00) and Hubs chose the Lamb Cutlets (£22.50). The cod had a delicious smoked flavour and was served on a bed of broccoli. The lamb cutlets were perfectly cooked (Hubs wanted them medium) and were very tasty.
We were quite full after the meal as the portions were good but we could not resist dessert. The children had 2 scoops of ice cream each (chocolate and vanilla) and Hubs and I shared the dessert platter (£15.50)
It was lovely. There was an array of fruit and desserts like passion fruit cheesecake, raspberry sorbet, banana ice cream and a delicious ice cream of chocolate and vanilla wrapped in a pistachio sheet. Absolutely yum!
I was a little hesitant to try the Sashami or Sushi but maybe the next time I go there, I will try those out.
The ambience is lovely and though one may think that it is not suited to children, the staff are friendly and at hand to make families comfortable. We were provided with paper for the children to try out some origami but it would have been nice to have some colours and paper to keep them occupied as they waited for their meals. Although, I have to admit that we did not have to wait very long for our meals so it was not too bad.
If you are looking for a place to try out with children in London, be sure to try this one out.
We would like to thank the staff of Chino Latino for the wonderful meal and the excellent service.
