Went to Wahaca for a pre-theatre meal with my family tonight. The growing restaurant chain was set up by Thomasina Miers, former MasterChef champion. It specialises in authentic Mexican street food using locally sourced, sustainable, British ingredients. Although it's in a basement the dining room is surprisingly airy and expansive. It's also ridiculously good value. You can eat, and drink, like a king for £20.

The food is best experienced as a Mexican take on tapas. The dishes are uniformly delicious, vibrant in both appearance and taste, fresh and (just about) seasonal. However, they can be a little heavy on the chilli in some cases. If you don't finish your meal with the chocolate and churros then you are missing out on a sublime treat.

There are outlets in Covent Garden, Westfield in Shepherd's Bush and apparently one will be opening in Canary Wharf soon. I'm looking forward to some lunchtime treats!
