Squaremeal Review of Wahaca ?

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.

After several unsuccessful attempts at obtaining a table at the Covent Garden restaurant I finally managed to try out the much raved about Wahaca at the newly opened venue in Canary Wharf. Upon entering its easy to see why it does so well with a carnival-like buzzing atmosphere and energetic and enthusiastic staff to match. Diners are spoilt for choice with the ample menu which was easily deconstructed by our uber friendly waitress Glenda (as she announced three times) . I opted for the Fish a la...

    THIS LITTLE PIGGY LOVES FOOD! :: WAHACA, CANARY WHARF

    love Mexican food and regularly cook tacos which are a family favourite. However we rarely go out for Mexican food as there isn't an abundance of Mexican restaurants in London, plus I prefer more "street" food like the burritos or nachos or quesadillas rather than anything "posh".

    I remember going to Wahaca when it first opened 8 years ago and not realising that some of the dishes are tapas style size…..my girlfriends and I completely under ordered on the food front and then completely overdid the wine…..it was a fun night had by all.

Thomasina Miers

Since winning MasterChef in 2005, Thomasina ‘Tommi’ Miers’ career has really taken off. Originally trained at the Ballymaloe Cookery School, she subsequently did a stint at Petersham Nurseries, before embarking on a slew of TV and writing work (including columns in The Times and The Guardian). In 2007, she opened the first branch of her trendy Mexican chain, Wahaca, which now has a cool new sibling, DF/ Mexico on Brick Lane.
