I have eaten in a couple of Wahaca restaurants now (and bought the cookbooks!) but I don’t think I have ever done a proper blog review so here is an ode to my favourite Mexican restaurant. It’s not a cuisine that we have very easy access to (the nearest decent Mexican restaurant to us is in Bristol) but one that I love…tacos, nachos, guacamole, pulled pork, margaritas – I love it all!
When I was in London recently with friends, we were going to try out Five Guys but when we saw a Wahaca next door, we quickly changed our minds!
The brainchild of Thomasina Miers, Wahaca serves Mexican market food with the option of small plates to share or something a bit heartier. The thing that always impresses me is how fresh and vibrant everything tastes and the specials are constantly changing with the seasons.
We started off with cocktails and guacamole – my hibiscus margarita was great!
Unable to choose just one dish, I went for some sharing options with Ian and my friend Hannah. My highlights included:
The most delicious fish tacos
Sweet potato and feta taquitos
Pork pibil tacos
All utterly delicious and a great selection for vegetarians too…I can’t wait for my next visit! x
