I recently visited Wahaca in Liverpool which is a Mexican restaurant that serves a variety of Mexican style street food. The restaurant was founded by Thomasina Miers who won MasterChef in 2005.
Wahaca in Liverpool is located on College Lane, but they also have restaurants in a variety of other cities and their locations can be found on their website.
I had been wanting to try Wahaca for a while as I came across it by chance one day due to its vibrant exterior catching my attention whilst I was shopping in Liverpool. The interior of the restaurant is just as vivid and I really loved the overall feel of the restaurant.
The young man that served us was very friendly and we were made to feel welcome. There was a lot to choose from on the menu as you could either choose from their selection of street food or opt for bigger dishes. We chose to go for the street food and the menu recommends that you choose 2 -3 things per person.
I chose a refreshing Aqua Frescas to drink and I went for the Hibiscus Flower flavour. It is a Cranberry flavoured Mexican flower cordial served with a squeeze of lime and it was honestly one of the nicest drinks that I’ve had!
The waiter explained that the food arrives at slightly different times so we had 3 dishes that arrived before the final two. I chose Smoky Chicken and Avocado Tostadas whilst my boyfriend opted for Devon Crab and MSC Shrimp Taquitos. We also ordered a portion of sweet potato to share but I ended up eating the majority of it because I quickly became obsessed! It was the best sweet potato ever.
We decided to share the other two dishes and we went for Chorizo and Potato Quesadillas and Grilled British Steak Tacos with Cheese.
All of the food that we ordered was absolutely delicious! I’m a big lover of Mexican food anyway so I was really pleased to finally try Wahaca and the whole experience definitely did not disappoint. I also thought it was really cool that they aim to minimise the environmental impact that they have as a business and they were therefore awarded three out of three stars by the Sustainable Restaurant Association. They also source their ingredients locally which is a huge plus!
If you haven’t been to Wahaca then I would definitely suggest that you try it. Their food is amazing and they also seem like a really good business. I can’t wait to go back and try more of their food!
Thanks for reading.
