Wahaca Edinburgh

16 S St Andrew St, Edinburgh EH2 2AU, UK


Since launching in London in 2007, the Wahaca group has enjoyed a high profile driving a fresh, exciting revival of Mexican food alongside transparent credentials when it comes to sourcing, waste and good causes. Sprinkle in celebrity chef-owner Thomasina Miers, some vibrant interior design and an enthusiasm for quality tequila and mezcal, and its arrival north of the Border in autumn 2016 was much anticipated. The place is big (166 covers), prominent (just off St Andrew Square) and colourful (with artwork from Barcelona-based street artist Ripo). While the basic formats of the Mexican table are familiar with tacos and taquitos dominating the street food/small plates menu and grills and enchiladas in the list of ‘bigger food’, they’re often filled with lively ingredients such as sweet potato and feta, crispy blue corn, pork pibil or MSC-certified shrimp and Devon crab. Most dishes are busy with spices, sauces, sprinkles and sides, and while a few – yes you, Mexico City-style salmon sashimi tostada – are hard to get your head around, you’ll eat yourself full. Veggie options are strong and the drinks flow. It’s a breathless but slick bustle of pumping music, happy chatter, bright colours and revved-up food and staff.
