If there is a better authentic Mexican restaurant in London, then I am certainly not aware of it. Wahaca is consistent, delicious, reasonably priced and very informal. Service is always friendly and the restaurant is always heaving, no matter what time of day. A short wait is common but does not deter me in any way.
I prefer to choose lots of the delicious little dishes like the tacos, open faced on soft little tortillas with fillings like the spicy chicken tinga, the delicious pork pibil with black bean paste of my all time favourite taco, steak with grilled cheese (queso blanco). The chicken taquitos and chorizo and potato quesadillas are lovely too. Sides like black beans with cheese and green rice are always great pairings. I just wish their portion of guacamole would increase a bit!
For dessert, Wahaca's Churros with a little cup of delectably devillish melted dark chocolate for dipping are too tempting to resist. Churros (long thin donuts dipped in sugar and cinnamon) are one of my favourite desserts of all time and Wahaca have some of the best in town.
I have tried all the newcomers that grabbed onto the coat tails of Wahaca's success but not one of them could possibly compare in quality, flavour or price to Wahaca!
