Restaurant: Wahaca, Southbank – London

Smoky chicken and avocado tostada – chargrilled chicken, guacamole, chipotle mayo and fresh slaw – £4.25

Tonight was date night but before we kicked off with proceedings at The Festival of Love on Southbank, we of course had to get ourselves some dinner! The post for the rest of the night will be up on Sunday, so we’ll leave all of that for then.

Nearby was Wahaca, again, another fairly well known chain that we haven’t been to. Not going to lie, we also saw that Zoella and Alfie were big advocates for it in their vlogs, so their approval was somehow enough to convince us to try it out for ourselves.

Grilled British steak taco – flash grilled skirt steak with chipotle salsa, with crisp grilled cheese – £4.85

We were told there was a half hour wait when we arrived, but we were more than happy to wait in the bar, where we filled the void with some cocktails and nachos. The wait was slightly longer than promised, but we were in no rush, although seeing so much food passing our eyes and noses made us eager to get seated!

Mexico City style chicken enchiladas – two classic enchiladas filled with courgette, cactus and summer herbs with melted cheese – £9.95 – James

Once we were sat at our table which gave great views of the early evening Southbank sun, we were served quickly and it wasn’t long before our small plates arrived. We decided to share two of these before moving on to the main courses of enchilada and steak. Jessica had been here once before, and fully recommended we ordered sweet potato – two portions of it intact as she was very adamant that we were not sharing! After having some, I can’t say I blame her, it was excellent!

British steak, the Mexican way – bavette steak marinated overnight in a smoky Pasilla de Oaxaca rub, served medium rare with crisp grilled cheese, green rice, and smoky chipotle salsa – £12.95 – Jessica

Guess it’s safe to say that we enjoyed this very much and we would recommend to anyone who enjoys a bit of Mexican spice and a good alcoholic beverage to go alongside. We decided to opt out of dessert however, as we had already eyed up the waffles on offer just across the way at the festival!
