Sharing Mexican Food Made Easy | Wahaca, Canary Wharf Review

Fajitas, they’re Mexican right?

Safe to say my experience (and knowledge) of Mexican food had been minimal before trying Wahaca. Is there a better restaurant to help get acquainted with this part of the world?

It depends how you look at it. It’s huge menu means you can pick and choose and try a myriad of plates. Or the choice can seem overwhelming – it took me a good 10 minutes to read all of the options available. Luckily, the menu is laid out and described in a digestible manor, much like their food.

I had chicken pipian tacos (4.25), grilled chicken in a nutty pumpkin seed and tomatillo sauce topped with crunchy red cabbage and chicken chipotle quesadillas (4.20).

These little parcels provided little mouthfuls of delight and do surprisingly fill you up, but they are quite morish meaning you could easily have another couple of plates if pushed!

I also had a Citrus Fizz (£1.75), fresh lime juice, torn mint and sparkling water to wash it all down and cleanse my palette and slightly spicy tongue! Highly recommended.

Wahaca is definitely made for two or more people as I can imagine ordering many plates and sharing would be a much more enjoyable experience than just trying the two plates I had. I recommend visiting now and getting a window seat which looks out over the ice rink in Canary Wharf.

Have you tasted Mexico via Wahaca? What do you recommend? Tell me in the comments section below!
