2 for 1 at El Guaca

Visit El Guaca, a fine venue that serves the best of authentic Mexican cuisine. With an exciting menu and a lively atmosphere to match, this place should be first choice when looking to dine in the Colchesterarea.

There is an extensive range of dishes that are sure to satisfy all, from those who are used to Mexican food, to those who are trying it for the first time.

Start with traditional Empandas – deep fried pastry filled with chorizo, cheese & oregano and served with chilli sauce, followed by Santa Fe Chicken – a half boneless chicken marinated overnight & served with jalapeno coleslaw and seasoned fries or a classic fajita with sirloin steak, chicken, tiger prawns or mushroom & courgette. And for the wise gringo who leave room for dessert; why not try the Banana Chimichanga, a cinnamon flour tortilla filled with banana which is then deep fried and served with vanilla ice cream & Dulce de Leche.

To wash all that down, don't forget to take a look at the drinks menu which includes favourites such as Margaritas, Caipirinhas, Shooters and delicious mocktails; if it's not on their menu it's not worth drinking!

The friendly staff members have a great energy and work hard to ensure that your dining experience is a pleasurable one.

A permanent hot spot with many from the area, the menu offers a great variety of Mexican favourites and dishes that you may not have even thought of trying before, each freshly prepared and cooked to order. Book now for a fantastic dining experience.

    I was not sure about going here because I didn't want my last memory of Mexican food ruined. However, I was throughly surprised and happy with the food and the service. My favourite type of food is Mexican and after moving to England I have been missing it so much. They give you what you pay for. I have now had my fix and we will be coming back for more. "
