Time to summerize. Our new menu is out now!

It’s that time of year again – shades, shorts and a slackening of the rules around eating ice cream before midday. So to ensure you hit that culinary sweet spot, we’ve launched a new summer menu that’s stocked full of suitably seasonal delights.

This year, as we turn 10 years old, Tommi has been hard at work flicking back through the archives, and has pulled together a menu of her favourite summer dishes from a decade of cooking in the Wahaca kitchens, and sprinkled it with a few inventions inspired by our recent travels around the Motherland.

Watch out for highlights like our new buttermilk chicken tacos – crispy fried chicken, topped with habanero & white onion relish & a spiced mayo; extra cheesy quesadillas, including the new chicken club; fire roasted cactus and courgette burritos and a heavenly hibiscus-roasted aubergine salad with roast serrano hummus, mint vinaigrette and salsa macha. New to our market treats section, a four cheese empanada, stuffed with four different cheeses in one pastry parcel. We crisp it up and top it with a fresh tomatillo salsa ready for you to take a chomp.

If you like the sound of that, Book yourself in and take your taste buds on a trip to discover a little bit more of the magic of the Mexican markets.

Wahaca goes Carbon Neutral

Wahaca goes Carbon Neutral

We are delighted to to be the first restaurant group in the UK to be certified as a CarbonNeutral company – here’s how:

Since opening our very first restaurant in Covent Garden in 2007, we have sought to be a climate leader in the industry, challenging ourselves to ensure that each site has as low an environmental impact as possible. Our group, which currently has 23 locations, has reduced the average total energy consumption of newer sites (those established after 2013) by 36%. Further to this, we have regularly assessed the efficiency of older locations, and by upgrading systems and appliances have decreased the average energy consumption of older sites by 15%. For example, adjusting a heater battery at the Bluewater Wahaca led to a 76% reduction in gas use. In 2016, through offsetting the remaining unavoidable energy usage by investing in far-reaching energy-saving initiatives, Wahaca has been certified as having a net zero carbon footprint.
