Mexico Fact Finding 2014

In a few days time (with not even the slightest smugness) an elite Wahaca team are heading on our regular fact finding mission to Mexico. We’ll be eating in as many market stalls, cantinas and restaurants as we can find, searching out the tastiest bites, top drinks and even more inspiration from The Motherland.

Coyoacán market
This time we’re taking on Guadalajara and heading to Tequila to visit the agave fields and distillery of our friends at Altos Tequila to understand exactly what goes into their 100% agave spirit (nothing but agave and love apparently). We’ll also be revisiting Mexico DF which will include stopping in to visit Ednica, the charity that we support through sales of our Street Food Specials. We’ll be hearing about their work helping to feed and educate the children working on the streets of Mexico City and have been set a challenge to cook them a British lunch, so wish us luck!
We’re always keen to try out new places, so if you have any suggestions of not to be missed bites and highlights, bars and karaoke dives, we’d love to know. Just post a comment below.

Tommi pays a visit to Ednica, our street project in Mexico City

Earlier this year, our co-founder and executive chef, Tommi went along to see the great work that gets done by Ednica, the Unesco backed charity that we have chosen to support.

Check out this interview that Tommi filmed with Violaine Dulin who has helped us set up the fundraising partnership we have going on. We think it gives a nice feel for the amazing work they are doing.

Next time you’re in the restaurant spend some time perusing the “Street food special” section of the menu and you’ll see that every time you order one of these dishes 20p is given to Ednica to help educate and feed kids who work on the streets of Mexico City. At the momement we have the huarrache and a cactus queso fundido on offer, which are totally-knock-your-socks-off-delicious so you can have a extra big smile on your face when it comes to ordering.
