Chimichanga, Unit 14, Southwater Square, Southwater Way, Telford, TF3 4JG

Tonight I have been to Chimichanga on the new Southwater complex in Telford with my friends Roxy and Jenny. Chimichanga is a Mexican restaurant serving a variety of food from fajitas to steak, or nachos to cajun chicken. They do an offer midweek (Monday-Thursday) where you can get two courses for £10.99 from a set menu if you book a table online, which I thought was fairly reasonable (see the offer here). We shared a huge bowl of nachos to start, and then I had a veggie enchilada and churros for dessert. All of the food was delicious, but I think my favourite was definitely the churros (avid readers will know my love of Spanish doughnuts - just look at this post about the Liverpool Food Festival). They also serve 2 for 1 cocktails before 7pm, so myself and Jenny treated ourselves to a couple of Mexican Jam Jars, which tasted like passion fruit. 

I also loved the decor in Chimichanga - it had a very rustic feel to it, with corrugated iron walls and old bicycle wheels as lampshades, and little cactuses dotted about. I would definitely go back again and try the fajitas next time, although I did think they were quite expensive from £11.95 for veggie ones.

Afterwards we went to Cineworld to watch Get Hard starring Will Ferrel and Kevin Hart. The film is about a millionaire that is framed for fraud and gets sent to jail, and turns to another man to prepare him and make him 'hard'. I found it hilarious and was giggling all the way through - a perfect end to a lovely day :)
You may not always end up where you thought you were going, but you will always end up where you are meant to be.
