The Londonist Says...
Part of Wahaca’s Charlotte Street branch, what we particularly like about this bar is that it ignores Tequila altogether in favour of lesser-known and generally better value mezcal. From punches to on-the-rocks, or instead of vodka in a Bloody Mary, the drink gets everywhere, and we’ve found the staff to be more than geared up for explaining exactly what’s what. Given it’s Wahaca, food is naturally on hand.
Filled with a mixed crowd, the appeal of this Mexican restaurant is apparently universal. A great buzzing atmosphere fills the room and the knowledgeable staff can help you choose exactly the right tequila or mezcal for your palette.
Tortillas loom large, in soft, crisp, toasted and chip variations, and in flour and corn versions, though there are also a few grills..avourites include the steak burrito (which comes with a zingy chipotle salsa); the little black bean tostadas (refried beans with avocado salsa, crema, cheese and fresh tomato salsa); the spicy slaw; and the guacamole (served with either tortilla chips or fennel pork scratchings).
