EATING OUT: Wahaca Manchester


So, we went out on Friday night for dinner to the Corn Exchange in Manchester. I love going there as there is such a great range of restaurants that are available and most of them you can't book tables - I know this can be a bit of a pain sometimes having to wait for a table, but if you're lucky the wait is not usually too long and the food is great. It also means that you can just show up when you're ready instead of having to try and race after work, find a parking space and arrive on time - just takes the pressure off for me.

We decided to go to Wahaca as we have never been before and we were in the mood for something super tasty! Oh yummy! It was so so good!!

Super cool venue!

Spread over two floors as well with a cute bar that overlooks the inside of the corn exchange

Funky Staircase :)

The menu is so big and there's so much variety, we had quite a lot of food but we ate it all! Super delicious!

I had a non alcoholic Ginger Beer - which is one of my treats to myself when I go out. This was such a great quality one and tasted really firey! Just how I like it :)

Hubby went for a Citrus Press which was freshly crushed lime, torn mint, sparkling water & a hint of sweetness. This was so refreshing!

Nachos and guacamole to start - obviously!

Like I said... Lots of food ha ha

We had...
  • Grilled British steak - Flash grilled skirt steak with chipotle salsa
  • Rajas - Strips of char-grilled poblano pepper, sautéed with spinach & corn in a deliciously creamy sauce
  • Tender, marinated chicken - Poached chicken seasoned with lime & black pepper and dressed with Lancashire cheese & chipotle salsa
  • Mexico City style salmon sashimi - Sustainably sourced raw salmon, marinated in fresh lime & tamari with avocado & chipotle mayo
  • Black bean & cheese - black beans, long cooked until tender, with Mexican herb
  • Sweet potato - Crispy fried chunks of sweet potato, dressed with smoky caramelised mojo de ajo
  • Spicy slaw - Fresh crunchy slaw mixed with our chipotle dressing
  • Churros y chocolate - Our favourite! Mexican doughnuts with a rich chocolate sauce
Super Yummy! I obviously didn't have the chicken or steak but hubby said they were tasty too!

I know toilets are a bit of a weird thing to show, but they were so different! These big barrels were the sinks that you wash your hands in! Super cool :)

Super lighting

Fresh mint tea - every time!

Seriously the sexiest churros I've ever had! Super crispy on the outside light and fluffy on the inside - Magic!!

I really hope you enjoy if it if you give it a try. I definitely would go back again and the service was so great! Our waitress was called Chanel and she was so so sweet and helpful. Everybody was so friendly and we had a really lovely night. 

Thanks for reading,
