Mexican

Top tips

  • Enjoy the salsa served before your meal, but avoid the deep-fried corn tortilla chips - ask for a flour tortilla instead
  • Ask for soured cream and guacamole to be served on the side. You could also ask for natural yoghurt instead of soured cream
  • Ask for just a little cheese in your meal
  • Go for lean meat, chicken and bean dishes
