Wahaca - Bluewater

Description

Looking to the markets of Mexico for inspiration, Wahaca was born from our love of fresh, honest, Mexican market food.

Not so long ago, tequila girls, cheap shots and greasy tortilla chips were images that sprang to mind when ‘Mexican’ was done in Britain. At Wahaca we shook things up a bit and started doing things a little differently. We’ve worked hard to match the flavours of Mexico with ingredients we can get hold of to create a constantly evolving, seasonal menu with ingredients sourced as locally as possibly, or grown and transported with care for the environment.

In recognition of our attempts to run our business with minimal impact on the environment around us, we've been voted Sustainable Restaurant Group of the year for 2 years running by the SRA. Our Wahaca Southbank Experiment restaurant was awarded the Green Building award at the Sustainable City Awards. Our most recent opening in St. Paul's was awarded a Gold SKA rating for measures including our recycling our used cooking oil into Bio Diesel used to power taxis in South London and the recycling of the heat given off by our freezers, to heat our water, saving energy by avoiding the need for a boiler.

Whether you’re checking out the latest exhibition in the Glow centre or doing a bit of shopping, our street food dishes are the perfect stop off. Take a seat in one of our converted VW vans or seek refuge under the recycled bottle canopy of our margarita bar and take in all of the colours and flavours of this Mexican corner of Kent’s favourite market.
