Slug and Lettuce recently expanded its small plates menu with an emphasis on offering a greater range of light, bite-sized dishes that can be shared with others.
The newest items on the menu include cured meat antipasti, jalapano slices and a paprika sour cream, as well as a 'Sweet & Petite' dessert menu of the same theme. As a whole, the new menu options are meant to be easily split amongst a group of diners, with five plates costing just £18.
Knowing that many consumers are seeking out lighter options in general, Slug and Lettuce also introduced a few new drinks, including a Skinny Prosecco with reduced sugar, the Baileys Iced Latte and even a Tapas Tails option that offers a tasting flight of three cocktails.
