Wahaca Spring Menu @ Corn Exchange, Manchester

Wahaca Spring Menu @ Corn Exchange, Manchester

Did you know 2016 is the ‘year of the taco’? I didn’t either but it’s true, well, according to Restaurant Magazine anyway. To be honest I’ve been obsessed with them for years but I’ll take any excuse to eat more tacos. Mexican restaurant Wahaca already have several on their menu but are celebrating the ‘year of the taco’ with a ... Read More »

Wahaca Finally Bring Their Mexican Street Food To Manchester

Wahaca Finally Bring Their Mexican Street Food To Manchester

There’s no shortage of places to eat Mexican food in Manchester but most are either market stalls, fast food/takeaway orientated or fused with other cuisines. Lucha Libre were the first to really bring the traditional dishes I love to a proper restaurant setting in 2013, before their closure earlier this year. That huge taco sized hole has now been filled by Wahaca, a chain ... Read More »

Breakfast @ Wahaca, Oxford Circus, London

Breakfast @ Wahaca, Oxford Circus, London

Usually when I wake up in London wanting breakfast there’s only one place on my mind; Dishoom’s ‘Bacon Naan’ is legendary and one of my all time favourite breakfast items. But one day I fancied something different, something a little healthier perhaps. Then I remembered that Mexican street food chain Wahaca serve breakfast. Although I didn’t realise at the time that only ... Read More »

Lucha Libre, Manchester (Revisit)

Lucha Libre, Manchester (Revisit)

Last November I was incredibly excited when Lucha Libre brought their exciting Mexican food over from Liverpool to a large, plush new second site in Manchester’s Great Northern Tower. Sadly it didn’t quite live up to the standards of it’s older sibling when I visited, though to be fair it was in the restaurants first week of opening. I always ... Read More »

Burrito Masterclass @ Barburrito Manchester

Burrito Masterclass @ Barburrito Manchester

A few months ago I was invited to attend a ‘Burrito Masterclass’ at Barburrito in Manchester by Amigos who make tequila flavoured beer. I love tequila and I love beer but I can’t say i’m the biggest fan of tequila flavoured beer. I am a huge fan of burritos though and despite being generally against chain restaurants have been to ...

The Farmers Arms – Mexican Fiesta Night

The Farmers Arms – Mexican Fiesta Night

Although my favourite cuisine changes on a fairly regular basis (it’s probably Japanese at the moment), Mexican is never far from the top. It’s definitely the style of food I cook most often at home. So I couldn’t help get excited when I heard about the Mexican Fiesta Night at The Farmers Arms. Arriving on a typically cold Bolton night I ... Read More »

Lucha Libre, Great Northern Tower, Manchester

Lucha Libre, Great Northern Tower, Manchester

Being a massive foodie I embrace all cuisines but if I had to pick just one favourite it would almost certainly be Mexican. It appeals to the chilli addict in me, I love the heat of Mexican dishes but also the contrast when paired with cooling ingredients like soured cream, lime and my favourite thing in the world, guacamole. For ... Read More »

Barburrito, Trafford Centre – ‘Food that mex the world spin faster’, Apparently.

Barburrito, Trafford Centre – ‘Food that mex the world spin faster’, Apparently.

The Trafford Centre really isn’t one of my favourite places, especially when i’m hungry as it’s filled with crappy chain restaurants that almost always end in disappointment. The only exception is Yo! Sushi which is where I headed, only to find it closed for renovations ‘until October’. I was furious as it had been October for over 12 hours! Eventually ... Read More »

Luck Lust Liquor & Burn – Mexican Sunshine In Manchester!

Luck Lust Liquor & Burn – Mexican Sunshine In Manchester!

Despite it being the talk of the town for most of 2012 and knowing that i’ll absolutely love the food I am still yet to visit Almost Famous in Manchester for various reasons. I’m not a hipster, I’m not really a fan of queuing for food but mainly because their marketing really annoys me. However, I couldn’t resist visiting ‘Miracle ... Read More »
