Corn ribs served in a colourful basket with chipotle mayo on the side



Corn is indigenous to Mexico and a staple of Mexican street food, so we’re always looking for new ways to enjoy it, while adding to our street food menu which is now around 50% veggie! This summer it’s the turn of the Corn ribs.


Slices are cut from the cob which are lightly fried, whilst cooking the corn curls slightly, resembling ribs.  The ‘ribs’ are tossed in lime and served with a smoky chipotle mayo, making for a vibrant, seasonable dish to share as part of a summery Wahaca feast.


Those in the mood for meat will welcome the addition of the new Carnitas tacos – slow-cooked, free range confit pork shoulder, caramelised and served in toasted corn tortillas with a green tomatillo salsa. Juicy, tender and marvellously moreish – a Mexican classic for a very good reason!


Check out the full summer menu for more mouth-watering inspiration.


Earlier in the summer we launched a super-sustainable snack that’s packed with protein, Wahaca’s new Cricket salsa.  It was an instant hit and we want to inspire even more of you to give it a go, so next time you drop in, add it to your order – it’s on us! The salsa, combining ground crickets with pumpkin seeds and chillies, is served with a portion of tortilla chips to scoop up the deliciousness.
