Well, the weather may yet deem us Londoners unworthy of a proper summer, but for a seasonally inspired taste of sunshiny goodness, Wahaca's new summer menu guarantees to add thoughtfully prepared warm weather dining with lots of irresistible sabor to the next few months.
Last night, Londonist attended a sample session of the new menu at this Mexican street food restaurant's Westfield branch. Much as when we tried out their Canary Wharf takeaway burritos, we were fully satisfied with what we ate. Chicken mole tacos (£3.25), MSC certified shrimp and scallop ceviche tostadas (£3.95) and broad bean and feta quesadillas (£3.85) pleased us immensely. But among the many dishes at hand, our fave was probably the corn bread and mole sauce with sesame seeds and crema (£2.60). As part of the menu's “street food specials”, 20p from each purchase of this simple and moreish dish goes to UNESCO charity ednica.org.mx to “educate street kids in Mexico City.” Refreshing Tommi's jelly (layers of hibiscus and passion fruit jelly, £3.40), an extraordinary flan (£3.95) and churros and chocolate (£3.60) as good as any you'll find in London demonstrated that indeed the proof is in the pudding.
Wahaca's yummy new summer menu is available starting today. Stop by their Covent Garden, Canary Wharf or Westfield location to give it a go. We suspect you'll be glad you did. Visit Wahaca online at www.wahaca.com.
