Be Still My Heart

We have eaten good Mexican food in London. It was more Mexican rather than Tex-Mex but we’ll take it dang it. Our journey to Wahaca to celebrate America’s independence ended in Italian food. We got there at seven and were told there wasn’t a table until 10. They don’t take reservations. So we meandered until we found a cute Italian place and had a wonderful dinner. Then Mike, Lauren and I walked to the Texas Embassy. (Lauren just moved over here last Monday and she and Mike work for the same company) They had live music for the forth and we heard more lovely American accents than anywhere else we have encountered so far. We had a great evening but kept watching the sky for firework and they never showed!

On Saturday we went down to an American Expat picnic. It was at a rather obscure location in north London and wasn’t very fun because everyone was in groups and it wasn’t really a communal thing. We left pretty quickly and walked around central London and wound up at Wahaca around six and it had no line! It was some seriously good Mexican food. It was voted the best cheap eats in The London Observer. And it was truly worth the wait! They don’t exactly get good ol Texas portions as far as chips and salsa go. For the whole table:

Good. The guacamole was suprisingly fresh and tasty! Now on to the entrees! Here most of the plates are tiny and each person should order 2 or 3 and all the sides come separately. It is kind of like a tapas bar. My favorite entree was the pulled pork tacos.

Everything else was excellent. I had some green rice and Mike had some corn on the cob. It was a wonderful meal and a great place that we will definitely be revisiting!

Our table after we demolished all the food!

Instead of matches, they fill little matchbooks with pepper seeds. They grow all their own peppers at the restaurant and just want to spread the seed love!

The pictures aren’t great and I can’t figure out how to flip the ones that are sideways. But suffice it to say , it that it was one of the best meals we have had in a while! We might just make it over here after all.

    The leftover food looks pretty good and colorful. I really liked looking at the corn on the cob. I love corn on the cob so I have to eat it when we go out because Honey can’t eat corn. I’m glad you found a new friend in Lauren. The pups are great. We have a new story to tell but I will send you and email.
    Love Nana
