The Taquitos at Wahaca were a triumph

I was lucky enough to be treated to lunch at Wahaca in Covent Garden (London) yesterday, and have become an instant fan.

The menu is arranged rather like a mexican tapas selection with small dishes to share, although you can have a platos fuertes (bigger plate) instead.

For some reason we were given the winter menu rather than the summer menu which is now up on their website, but no matter, it was great anyway.  All the flavours of mexican food, but fresh and light.  Their Frijoles were a triumph made with black beans and topped with sour cream, as were their Taquitos – crispy corn tortillas.

I was less keen on the Tortilla Soup, as it was smokey, which is not my favourite flavour, but an excellent innovation in texture served with avocado and tortillas.

This restaurant is now on my list of ‘regulars’ and I can’t wait to go back!
