Wahaca in Waterloo is a new Mexican restaurant, with a tequila bar, by the river, reasonably priced and here for a limited time only… Loving it yet?!
A dining project of Thomasina Miers’ a former Masterchef winner, Wahaca is made from 8 recycled shipping containers. With over 4 miles of yellow shipping cord lined throughout the restaurant, old shipping signs, mexican tack and graffitied walls- it’s a quirky, edgy and fun place to chill with friends over some seriously good mexican grub and drinks- ‘Salut’ indeed thanks to their large selection of ‘real’ tequilas.
Mexican food is a personal favourite of mine, but I regularly find portions of this rich cuisine too heavy. Wahaca offers a ‘Street Food’ option on their menu that allows you to order lots of smaller dishes- Mexican tapas if you will- which is great for sharing with friends, trying new dishes, and leaving feeling less bloated under the old poncho.
A lovely warm glow emits from this pop-up through their brightly coloured walls, spicy rich food and friendly staff. A mini mexican market on London’s Southbank.
With locations now in Bluewater, Canary Wharf, Soho, Stratford, White City and Camden, Wahaca has expanded its presence and popularity across London since its doors first opened in Covent Garden, in 2007.
