Wahaca, Waterloo Review

Today saw me going to a great lunch at a great restaurant in a great part of London. The company was pretty great as well. Cringe. Anyway, let’s talk Wahaca.
Wahaca Waterloo is effectively 4 shipping storage containers bolted together, and is great fun. Vibrant colours, open kitchen, lots of light. A really fun setting. And nice views of the river. It’s basically a really nice place to be. When you arrive, there is normally quite a long wait (30 mins) but luckily they allow you to use the bar upstairs, and eat guacamole. Living the high life. They also have groovy little remotes that tell you when your table is ready. A useful and well thought out idea!
As for the food, you can choose between burritos or “street food”, as well as other sides and assorted items. The street food involves Taquitos, Quesadillas, Tacos and salads. All about £5 which is well priced, considering two is easily enough for lunch, per person. So I got three steak tacos, which were delicious, as the steak was tender and tasty with a healthy portion of salsa. The chicken Taquito was fresh and equally delicious. Most interesting was the cactus tacos with courgette. Interesting texture, similar to….um…. You know what, it was similar to cactus.
Sweet potatoes were very delicious, well and properly cooked, with a good charred skin.
Churros were very well done with good chocolate sauce.
So, if you want a fun, reasonably inexpensive and delicious meal, look no further than Wahaca
