Another lunch and another visit to Wahaca. This time a return visit to the branch on the South Bank. This was the first Wahaca I visited and it is one of my favourites. I like how the whole place is just made from shipping containers, and the great views across the Thames.
This time I went with three dishes from the street food market (as I normally do).
I do like the grilled steak tacos, I have had these quite a few times now. These tacos come with flash-grilled skirt steak with chipotle & tomatillo salsas.
These were very nice, most of the steak was tender and tasty, one bit was a bit chewy, but apart from that they were delicious.
For my two other choices I went with new dishes. I do like chicken wings, so was intrigued by the hibiscus glazed wings.
These were described as crisp & juicy chicken wings tossed in a sticky hibiscus & pasilla chilli glaze.
The chicken wings had been cooked in the deep fat fryer and were lightly tossed in the glaze. I had quite a high expectations for this dish, but in the end it was slightly disappointing. The chicken was slightly dry, however the sauce was nice.
My final choice was the Mexico City style salmon sashimi tostadas. Made from sustainably-sourced raw salmon with a squeeze of fresh lime & soy, tobacco onions, chipotle salt, avocado & chipotle mayo.
I really liked these. A nice combination of fresh tasting salmon combined with crunchy corn tortillas and a nice spicy zing.
I have found that I have enjoyed every meal at Wahaca and will most certainly be visiting again.
