Wahaca - St.Paul's


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.

Wahaca - St.Paul's
Wahaca St. Paul’s, up on the first floor of One New Change, is the perfect stop-off for a Mexican street food hit in the heart of The City. With huge murals from Mexican street art duo Fabian & Cawamo and a wood panel installation filling the space with our own Mexican sunshine, it transports you directly to Mexico City’s Zócalo square. Wahaca St. Paul’s also has a cocktail and tequila bar if you fancy a drink and a few games of table football. Our most sustainable restaurant to date and Gold SKA rated.
