At Las Iguanas we pride ourselves on the great perks we offer our people, because we believe that their happiness is the key ingredient to our recipe for success. Undoubtedly, every one of our Iguanas deserves rewarding for contributing to the forever growing Latin American experience we offer. One of the fantastic ways we say thank you is by sending a select few on educational trips aboard.
Our most recent Las Iguanas perks saw four of our Iguanas spend two days and a night in Barcelona! They were treated like VIP’s and were wined and dined by our sponsoring suppliers, Malquerida who have created a new type of beer. Malquerida is ‘fresh red’and pairs perfectly with Latin food.
Marta from our Las Iguanas restaurant in Reading and Mario from Las Iguanas in Chester won their seats on the plane to Barcelona because they sold the highest percentage of Malquerida beer in their restaurants. They were also accompanied by our Head of Training Christina and Operations Manager Matt.
The group spent both days exploring Barcelona’s many beautiful attractions, and a perk included seeing the vibrant Casa Batlló house designed by Gaudi. The highlight of the trip was an eighteen-course meal at Albert Adria’s restaurant Hoja Santa. Adria helped to create Malquerida along with Damm’s master brewers and his brother Ferran, also a top chef.
Hoja Santa (also known as Mexican pepper leaf)
Hoja Santa is the only Michelin starred restaurant outside of Latin America that conceptualises the culinary Latin culture. This was a great opportunity for our Iguanas, who were able to celebrate the ultimate Latin American experience from a Spanish perspective.
