Anyway, on with the review. What could make my good friend Sarah write this?
(Yes, ignore the broken phone and the fact that it's impossible to take a good photo of my phone...and that it gives away when we visited...)
I'm always hearing about Wahaca and when we wandered past it on a rather beautiful day in the end of summer, we decided it was time to give it a go and see if it lived up to the hype. I asked Sarah what she recommended - the sweet potato - but it was a little late for me to actually order it.
The counter - where the food was prepared in double-quick time.
D loved his menu so much and was desperate to do some colouring but his food arrived so swiftly, he didn't get a chance!
Finally, my experimental dish arrived - cactus and courgette tacos. I was really very curious about these, having never tried cactus before. It's very salty. The sauce and the grilled cheese were enjoyable but the overriding taste for me was salt/brine. I managed one of the three tacos and Mr K attempted a second but we just could not bring ourselves to eat the final one.
Apart from this failed experiment, however, the meal was a success. Including our mojito each, the bill was £41.50. Not bad for London for three with a little bit of alcohol.
I also loved this little matchbook style gift at the end - a way to grow your own chillis as it actually contained seeds.
Wahaca has a few different locations across London and one at Bluewater. Service is good, food is tasty and arrives quickly - we'll definitely be returning!
