SquareMeal Review of Wahaca Southbank

Thomasina Miers' ever-growing Wahaca chain launched this site as a temporary venture at London’s Southbank Centre to coincide with the Festival of the World, but its popularity has ensured that the venue will be turned into a permanent, bricks-and-mortar restaurant from summer 2014. Sitting on the terrace of the Queen Elizabeth Hall, overlooking the river, the two-storey restaurant has been fashioned from eight recycled shipping containers, with murals and graffiti adding extra colour to site. The menu comprises a line-up of seasonally changing Mexican specials: expect experimental stuff, with bold flavours and ideas. There’s also a dedicated Tequila bar for those who fancy a shot or two.
