I’ve been a bit backed up on blog posts recently so even though I’ve been back in London and at uni for 2 weeks now, I’ve only just gotten around to posting this. I can’t believe that this is my 3rd and final year at university, it feels like yesterday that I was in halls and a fresher, meeting everyone for the first time! It’s been such an amazing experience and I would recommend it to anyone who isn’t sure if uni is for them or not!
Mum and dad were nice enough to drive me down instead of me having to get the train (thank goodness because there is no way that all of my stuff would have fit on the train). We dropped my things off in the flat and then walked to Waterloo for a bite to eat in Wahaka.
This was only my 2nd time at Wahaka and I love the chilled out atmosphere and the insane Mexican food.
You can either choose one of their bigger Platos Fuertes or you can choose from their smaller street food dishes to share (which is what we did).
I chose the pork pibil which consisted of three soft corn tortillas filled with slow cooked pork in a special Yucatecan marinade with fiery pickled onions.
I also had a quesadilla which was a large toasted tortilla oozing with british chorizo, fresh thyme and steamed potato.
Mum had the Sonora salad which was full of avocado, pumpkin seeds, beans, British organic spelt and cos lettuce in a crispy tortilla bowl with char-grilled steak.
If you go, you HAVE to have the sweet potato as a side order, it’s dressed with smoky caramelised mojo de ago and practically melts in your mouth.
The final street food option that I chose was taquitos stuffed full with tender, marinated chicken and smothered with shredded lettuce, Lancashire cheese and fresh tomato salsa.
For dessert, mum and I shared churros which are a Mexican doughnut with a rich chocolate sauce and topped off the meal perfectly.
When it came to paying the bill, Wahaka uses an awesome app called Flypay which you can download to your phone and then scan the code that is on your table, bringing up the bill. This means that there’s none of that awkward business of attempting to make eye contact with your waiter for about half an hour.
