Square Meal Review of Wahaca Waterloo ?

Ex-MasterChef winner Thomasina Miers now oversees branches of her popular canteen-style eatery across the capital and beyond, luring good-timers and young families with its mix of colourful, fashion-conscious surrounds and ‘flavoursome’ Mexican cooking. Vibrantly spiced street food is the deal, which means tacos filled with grilled steak or marinated, slow-cooked pork pibil, crisp tostadas with ceviche or refried beans, taquitos, quesadillas and specials such as the queso fundido – Mexico’s answer to fondue. Salads, grills and burritos bulk out the menu, while a heart-stopping pudding selection includes churros y chocolate and dulce de leche ice cream. Wahaca’s eco-credentials bear scrutiny, and the upbeat young vibe is fuelled by copious Tequila cocktails – even if that true Mexican zing is sometimes missing from the plates. Note: no bookings, but you can always sip a margarita while you wait.

The branch we visited was a small one in Waterloo and it was one of the more rugged branches I have visited when compared to its more modern Westfield Stratford outpost.

    After a short wait at the bar we were seated and it felt like we ordered the whole menu....

    inher30s :: Wahaca

    Before Wahaca, my experiences with Mexican food were limited. Occasional dubious run-ins with refried beans didn’t endear me and then there are the yellow kits that feature heavily in my dinner repertoire. Not exactly authentic.

    So Wahaca, billing itself as Mexican market eating is a breath of fresh air. The four of us are here today at the Waterloo Wahaca for a quick pre-theatre meal before heading off for a dose of culture at the Old Vic. I’m concerned the queues are going to be prohibitive but the restaurant is large, brightly and colourfully lit and charms us instantly...
