Feb half-term fun at Wahaca

Yes we are all about the tacos, margaritas and fun times at Wahaca. But we also welcome your little niños at every one of our restaurants, where in true Mexican style, family dining is a way of learning about fresh ingredients and socialize with grown-ups.

We not only serve a really fun, tasty and healthy kids menu of ‘build your own tacos’, but we have also equipped our most child friendly London restaurants (watch out for others joining soon) with Flying Eye Books mini-libraries, where kids will be able to borrow and enjoy some great titles such as Astro Cat & Hilda while their parents finish their tacos/churros/tequilas.

Our Wahaca & Eye Flying Books library is now available at our Kentish Town, Brixton, Islington, Wimbledon and White City restaurants, at White City you’ll also be able to take part in a Guacamole workshop on Tuesday 16th of February, and if you pop by to Southbank Centre’s Imagine children’s festival, remember our Southbank restaurant is a stone’s throw.

To celebrate the Wahaca & Flying Eye Books little library, we have 10 books to give away to one lucky child plus 4 Wahaca children’s meal vouchers. To enter simply share with us a pic of your fave place to read (as uncommon as it may be!) and tag us on Instagram or Twitter @flyingeyebooks @wahaca using the hashtag #wahacakids and we will pick a winner on Sunday 21st of February.

Wahaca bringing children’s literature to the table

We are very excited to partner up with Flying Eye Books to encourage children to embark on a lifetime love of reading.

To begin with, 6 of  our most family visited restaurants are now home to a ‘Flying Eye Books Little Library’ featuring a host of beautifully designed award-winning books for all ages for children to enjoy with their families as part of their Wahaca dining experience. The children will be encouraged to borrow and read a book while their family finishes their meal. Children will also be the opportunity to get creative with Flying Eye character branded menu placemats and get their own collectors book mark to take home with them. tumblr_miimpm1O1h1rm3ezmo1_1280 About Flying Eye Books: Flying Eye Books (FEB, for short) is the children’s imprint of award-winning visual publishing house Nobrow. Established in early 2013, FEB sought to retain the same attention to detail in design and excellence in illustrated content as its parent publisher, but with a focus on the craft of children’s storytelling and non-fiction. Since then, an array of stunning and innovative titles have populated the list, including the award-winning Hildafolk series by Luke Pearson, the highly acclaimed Professor Astro Cat’s Frontiers of Space from Ben Newman and Dr. Dominic Walliman and exquisite picture books and enchanting illustrated biographies from breakaway young talents like Emily Hughes (Wild) and William Grill (Shackleton’s Journey, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of 2014 and winner of the 2015 Kate Greenaway Medal).

Children’s Day at the V&A Museum of Childhood

This weekend, together with The Embassy of Mexico in the UK, we’re celebrating Mexico’s Children’s Day with 2 days of free workshops and activities for children and families at the V&A’s Museum of Childhood.

Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th April sees a whole programme of activities for you and your little ones to get involved with as well as a voucher to grab a free children’s meal from our brand new children’s menu any time in the next 2 months.

Activities include storytelling, Mexican toy painting, piñata making, mask and face painting and Mexican dancing. So enough fun to keep any little person entertained for the whole day. By all accounts, it should be pretty swell.

Our new children’s menu launched in all of our restaurants today and gives little people the chance to explore the Mexican market too, with specially selected dishes that aren’t spicy, but still full of flavour and wholesome goodness. Kids can choose from a choice of quesadillas, mini burritos or fish tacos, a side dish and a drink all for just £5.

For details of how to get there and what time the events kick off, just head to the Museum’s website.
