Wahaca in Soho is part of a chain of restaurants in London and elsewhere in the UK. The chain serves modern, fresh Mexican food.
It was always the plan to head to Wahaca in Soho for Sunday lunch during our recent trip. We both suspected that by this point we would need fresh, tasty food and lots of it. We are fans of Thomasina Miers, she’s knows Mexican food and talks with enthusiasm. There is a great relaxed vibe about the restaurant. We arrived early, and in my case a little fragile! Walking into Wahaca, with its bright walls and battered furniture, you feel immediately at ease. Our very attentive waiter explained the menu and made some recommendations. He then went to get out drinks giving us time to peruse the menu.
Firstly Michelle ordered a mojito, my favourite cocktail, whilst I ordered a virgin maria. The cocktail hit the spot, settled my stomach allowing me to concentrate on the important task of lunch! What to order? Safe to say we could have eaten everything on the menu, but decided on a selection of smaller street food plates. We started with bowls of guacamole and frijoles and tortilla chips, fresh and packing a punch on flavour. From there it was a case of trying to narrow down what plates we fancied. Ending with a selection of tacos, tostadas, quesadillas and a side of sweet potato. Greedy yes; delicious most definitely; were we able to finish everything, no! I would have loved to have had the churros to finish off. However neither of us had space and instead we shared a very tasty and refreshing mango sorbet.
Our waiter was Jorge, he was really friendly, helpful and attentive, but at no point did we feel rushed. Indeed I love any place that brings you iced water without asking and keeps it topped up. I should also point out that we got a very pleasant shock when the bill arrived at how little our lunch had cost us, very reasonably priced. We will be back next time we are in London, but might try Canary Wharf next time as our waiter said its got great views across the city.
