One of my favourite restaurants is Wahaca. There are about four branches in London and so far we have tried the one in Docklands at Canary Wharf and the one in Wardour Street in the west end. Wahaca is the brainchild of telly chef Thomasina Miers and the theme is Mexican street food like burritos, quesadillas, tamales
and the slow cooked pibel pork
Food is cooked fresh and arrives when it is ready, so don’t expect the dining experience to be structured or pretentious, expect it to be fun. Aside from the food there is a good selection of Mexican beer and tequila and for a mere £10.60 we normally take a tequila experience each with a glass of blanco, reposado and anejo tequilas and a sangrita (orange, tomato and pomegranate juice).
Best enjoyed with some of these amazingly light pork scratchings and guacamole.
And for desert some of the best churros and chocolate in London
What’s also cool is that they give you this.
Which looks like a book of matches but is in fact a book of chili seeds to grow at home like these little sprouts
Which grow into these
No fruit yet but will keep you posted, for more info about Wahaca use the link to the right.
