BOSTON, Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- If the cold weather (and the economy) has got you down and all you can think about is lying on the beach or taking an exotic vacation to paradise, Uno Chicago Grill® has the perfect solution to warm your stomach and take you on a tasty trip -- at least for a little while -- with its winter limited-time-only menu beginning today.

UNO's® winter menu has plenty of locales in mind, from the vegetarian Moroccan Curried Rice and Lentil Soup to the Italian Chicken Milanese Sandwich. Following your trips to Morocco and Italy, move on to Mexico with UNO's own house-made Guacamole Dip. Besides being tangy and delectable with the simplest of ingredients, including avocado, lime juice, red onions and tomatoes, this dip is high in fiber and a good source of vitamin C.

And if you can't get enough avocado, try UNO's fresh Avocado Egg Roll; a favorite that comes with the restaurant's own tangy/sweet tamarind cashew dipping sauce seasoned with vinegar, honey and cilantro. Or, extend your Mexican holiday with a Chicken Fajita Deep Dish Pizza, which features an out-of-this-world crust filled with grilled marinated chicken breast and a blend of melted Cheddar and mozzarella, peppers, onions and UNO's own salsa.

Next, take an exotic trip to Asia with the Chinois Chicken Salad, which features shreds of Napa and green cabbage, carrots, lime-marinated grilled chicken breast, crispy strips and field greens, all tossed in a soy-ginger vinaigrette sprinkled with cilantro and sesame seeds.

And don't forget the USA with Barbecue Short Rib Sliders or Boneless Beef Short Ribs with Fresh Pappardelle Pasta, both doing America proud.

Finally, no matter where in the world your taste buds travel, everyone loves a great deal. For a delicious treat that's light on your wallet, try UNO's 2 Sticks (steak or shrimp skewers), 2 Sides, 2 Sauces deal for just $9.99; the Mix Up Your Sticks deal, which allows the unlimited addition of steak or shrimp skewers, for just $3 for each additional skewer; or the Make it Complete deal, which adds a house or Caesar side salad and a mini dessert to any dish for just $3.

This 'Passport To Everywhere' is just the latest in a series of menu events that UNO has orchestrated, including 'New Orleans Jazz Festival of Flavors', 'Best of Summer, Starring Lobster' and 'the Fall of Surprises'. Each is designed to further enhance UNO's reputation for great flavor and healthy choices, as exemplified by its recognition as "America's Healthiest Chain Restaurant" by Health magazine.
