Let’s pretend for a moment that it’s not just any Tuesday, but next Tuesday, which we all know is El Día de San Valentín!
Now usually, the merest hint of the concept of Valentines Day is enough to make me roll my eyes so hard they are in danger of bursting out of my skull. Having said that, I’m also a sucker for special days – Christmas, Halloween, birthdays, Tuesdays – in other words, any excuse to treat yo’self to your favourite things every once in a while.
If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you may be well aware by now that one of my favourite things in the world are tacos, and I need very little excuse to treat myself to them regularly. Those lovely chaps at Wahaca got in touch to tell me about a li’l offer they have running at the moment on a Tuesday, whereby every adult dining at their restaurant can get their first plate of tacos for £1.
A QUID! As if you need any other excuse for tacos. And guess what? It’s not just next Tuesday, but every Tuesday. So if you’ve got plans for Valentines this year then don’t fret, you can always have a belated celebration on the 21st. Every excuse, eh?
I am a big fan of Wahaca, not just because of my lust for Mexican-inspired food, but because they offer a healthy selection of choices for veggies (unlike other chain restaurants), like these winter vegetable tacos above. If you’re not a fan of tacos then firstly, what is wrong with you?! But also, there are lots of other things to choose from on their updated, colossal winter menu.
If you’re tempted to fill your Valentines with tacos this year, head over to Wahaca to book your table poste-haste.
Of course, you might be like me, and prefer to hibernate in front of a crappy action film with some cheap Polish lagers from the corner shop instead of dressing up and heading out for dinner. In which case, may I introduce you to Wahaca’s taco-making kits? (Omg, seamlessly shoehorned in there).
These li’l kits contain everything you need to make your own Wahaca tacos at home – corn tortillas, a spice mix to cook everytihng in and a sachet of salsa to make it all as saucy as ya like. All you need to add is veggies and chicken.
We swapped the chicken for tofu and made a spicy pepper and tofu scramble to go inside ours, and had our own little taco-making party at home. Accompanied with spring onion rice, sour cream and smidgen of cheese, they were dee-licious. My favourite was the smoky chipotle, with achiote coming in a close second. The mojo is perfect if you like the flavours of Mexican food, without much of the spice! You can always add some chillis for those who like it hot. We’re also a big fan of the Wahaca habanero salsa!
Let me know your Valentine’s (or Galentine’s) plans – leave a comment below 🙂
I was sent these kits to write a review but all words and opinions are my own.
