Mexican restaurant Chimichanga coming to Bury St Edmunds

Have your say

A Mexican restaurant chain has announced that it is to open at the site of a former Spanish tapas outlet La Tasca in Bury St Edmunds.

The La Tasca branch which had been on Abbeygate Street for eight years, was one of 22 restaurants that closed at the end of last month.

Prezzo PLC which owns Mexican restaurant chain Chimichanga said it has taken on a lease at the site and is to invest around £550,000.

The move is expected to create about 20 jobs.

Work will start on the unit later this month with bosses hoping to open the restaurant by Christmas.
