I don't get my way all of the time you know. This time at my friends insistence, all three of them (including Mrs Bacon) really wanted to go to Wahaca on our two day London trip. I must admit I was intrigued, although my reluctance was more due to the bewildering amount of choice London has to offer. It would be interesting to compare it to a newly opened Mexican restaurant in Manchester that had underwhelmed me. Loads of people use the London restaurant as a bench mark for such places often saying 'it's not as good as Wahaca'.
We visited the Soho branch of this ever growing chain. I say 'chain', in Manchester we think of chains as generally dull mainstream conglomerates, but in London there are such a large number of smaller indie chains where the quality doesn't seem to be lost in the same way. We need a lot more of them in our city - I think it's starting to happen with Iberica opening in two locations next year.
