Wahaca Day of the Dead Meal 2018
Wahaca is possibly one of my favourite Mexican style restaurants. I must have been over 5 times so it’s safe to say that I leapt at the chance to try out this year’s Day of the Dead Feasting Menu. As I’m based in Manchester, we headed over the Wahaca in the Corn Exchange to enjoy the feast!
The feasting menu consists of 6 savoury dishes and one sweet served with either a Corona or a Marigold Margarita, and true to the style of Wahaca, each dish comes out when ready! Because I was sharing this with a friend, it actually worked so well as we didn’t have to worry about anything going cold!
The first three dishes to come out were the Chargrilled Pumpkin, the Tenderstem Broccoli and the Chorizo Quesdilla. All three were so delicious! The pumpkin was served with feta, pomegranate and a cashew based sauce. It had an incredible balance of sweet and savoury that was so filling! The broccoli was served with a sharp lime dressing and sliced red cabbage. Combined with the pumpkin, it really balanced out the sweetness. The Quesdilla was out of this world. Not only was it unbelievably cheesy (always a good sign) but the chorizo added a fragrant flavour that made this potentially my favourite dish!
Then we had the Mexican Ceviche and the Freshly Baked Cornbread. The Ceviche was gorgeous! Consisting of trout and avocado in a tangy lime and grapefruit dressing, it was the perfect balance. I’m a huge fan of sushi and to be honest this very much reminded me of it! The cornbread was equally as delicious and was surprisingly light and slightly sweet, balanced out by the whipped goats cheese. So. Good.
And finally, the grand finale of Churros y Chocolate. Light, cinnamon dusted churros were served with a dark chocolate and caramel dip - and they were incredible. They didn’t feel too stodgy and were the perfect finale! As a huge fan of Churros, these definitely hit the spot! The only downside was that there were 5 Churros which made sharing a race to the finish!
We left feeling comfortably full! The combination of service and food was simply incredible and we very much enjoyed ourselves! The menu is priced at £25 each and is thoroughly worth it!
Does this sound like something you’d enjoy? Have you been to Wahaca before?
