Wahaca, London

Wahaca, London
Wahaca is one of those places I had intended to go to for ages. My husband isn't the biggest fan of mexican food because there is lots of relish, sour cream and salad involved - that's his idea of hell. So when he was required to visit the big smoke for work, I decided to tag along and go and do a little culinary sightseeing, and as it turned out, way too much walking. 

I went to visit the Charlotte Street branch, as they served breakfast. I'd heard great things about Wahaca from my friend Shaun over at FoodGeek, which reaffirmed this was a gaff requiring some attention. It was a cold but very sunny morning that I set out on my quest for a Mexican breakfast. I arrived looking a little dishevelled; eyes streaming, hands frozen and with hair resembling that of Worzel Gummidge. I was welcomed in by a friendly chap who proceeded to offer me a hot chocolate.

Inside is a mish mash of bright colours, made even more spectacular by the bright sunlight. I imagine it's a wonderful place to sit on a warm sunny day with the retractable glass walls open.

Hot chocolate - the Mexican way: this is made with real chocolate and has my favourite magic ingredient blended in - cinnamon. A wonderful way to start your day!

Breakfast torta: this is a toasted sour dough bap filled with avocado, frijoles, crema, roast chipotle
salsa, lettuce and streaky bacon. Oh lord it was divine! The salty bacon went perfectly with the black beans and fresh avocado. I could have eaten two.

I would highly recommend breakfast at Wahaca, and I have it on good authority that their normal menu is just as fantastic. The staff were chatty and the food was fresh, tasty and filling. What more can you ask for?
