Looking for an early evening eatery, food tweeters came to my rescue by suggesting a visit to the Covent Garden branch of Wahaca, a place I’d wanted to try for a while.
Arriving early, we were rewarded with quick service and a funky but peaceful environment. The food was good, though a few dishes were too hot for us, especially the pork pibil tacos, which had me hyperventilating with chilli shock!
As time ticked on the tables filled up, which created a great vibe, though it was a shame when the volume of the music was whacked up, drowning the buzz and making it difficult to talk.
We stuck to street food with a mix of tacos, tostadas, taquitos, tortilla chips, guacamole and frijoles. Some great flavours – fresh, zingy, energising!
But the dish we both lusted for was churros y chocolate! The churros were crunchy throughout, rather than soft within and crispy without, as we’ve both experienced before… so not quite what either of us expected. But they worked well with the rich, viscous, dark chocolate dipping sauce. Mmmm!
