Eating vegan at Las Iguanas is awesome!
"Vegans won't get a 'good' vegan meal in a mainstream restaurant! They'd have to go to a 'special' one."
Sometimes I forget about the assumptions that people make about how accessible vegan options are, and I end up being thrown when they're voiced.
It's generally accepted that vegetarian options are easily available, but there seems to be a lack of awareness, or resistance, about how easy it is for vegans to eat out.

Is Las Iguanas any good for vegans?
Oh yes! The vegan menu has a variety of tasty options on it, and it tastes great! We went to a branch in Bristol and found out that the older restaurants don't operate in the same way as the later ones. They have the classic menu but they don't have the separate veggie or vegan menu that you can see below.
I found it strange because chains usually have the same menus no matter where you go, but it didn't actually matter, because they had lots of veggie options which could be veganised anyway.
This is what we ate during one of our visits.
