Wahaca Covent Garden

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "So that is what you do after Masterchef!"

Quote:
We visited Wahaca with my daughter as she has been and liked it. She knows we always like to try new places to eat. Unfortunately they don't take bookings so when it is very busy you can sometimes have to wait for quite long periods which can be annoying.The place is pretty big and we were shown to a table deep in the heart of the restaurant right at the back.The restaurant was started by one of the winners of Masterchef some years back and she was inspired by her time in Mexico to start this restaurant. Since then there have been several others open in London. We went to the Covent garden place but you can have the same food in these locations Bluewater, Canary Wh...Read More

Soseki Restaurant20 Bury Street, London EC3A 5AX0207621 9211 soseki.co.ukOn the Saturday of the Ciao meet in London I booked to go to this restaurant in the evening. I had managed to get a great deal through the site www.groupon.com and we were very excited about visiting this posh Japanese restaurant at the foot of the famous London landmark known as ‘The Gerkin’.My daughter, Emma and left the Ciao meet and took the bus in the direction of ‘The Gerkin’ and as we walked the last part of the journey I was quite amazed to see the streets completely empty, it was as if the area had been hit by some disaster and wiped out all the population. My daughter explained ...Read More

Restaurant | "Not quiet Rio in London"

NabrasaANOTHER GROUPON DEALI bought this deal for the Brazilian BBQ through Groupon and I think it was £14.60. a person. I chose this as it was quite close to where my daughter lives and we had really enjoyed the Brazilian BBQs we had had in Rio de Janeiro and was rather hoping it would be something like that experience.Our deal included a cocktail, the BBQ and dessert for the £14.60 price. This is what attracted me to the deal. It was an authentic Brizilian BBQ specialising in rodizio grills and it is near Earlsfield station so handy to get to from Wandsworth. They advertise that there is live music on some nights and indeed there was a young man singing and playi...Read More

RADHA KRISHNA BEVAN – TOOTING, SOUTH LONDONWe had been to see ‘Rock of Ages’ at the theatre and my daughter had wanted us to go to somewhere in the city to eat but in typical London fashion everywhere was packed and the place she wanted to take us to didn’t take bookings. We walked for miles and eventually decided to go back to Tooting as there was more choice of curry restaurants and it was on the way back to Wandsworth where my daughter lives.We arrived in tooting and once again wandered up and down. We were looking for a place that looked a bit better than a takeaway and also somewhere that was licensed as we wanted a drink as well as a meal.My daughter and frie...Read More

Afternoon tea at the Royal Trafalgar HotelWhitcombe St,London,WC2H 7HGI bought this deal through Groupon or one of the many deal sites. I chose this as we were going down to London to stay with my daughter and this seemed a nice thing to do one afternoon. I found this particular deal through Wowcher and I remember that I paid £19 for two for a champagne afternoon tea in this hotel near Trafalgar Square. Now the usual price for this is £60 which is stupidly expensive in my view but at £19 per couple I felt it was good value.THE DEALHighlights• Enjoy an afternoon tea for two, with:• A glass of bubbly each.• A selection of sandwiches, including ...Read More

We have been known to go and wait here for my daughter and her partner to arrive back from work because we try to drive through London before traffic picks up on Friday evening.If we are eating in at my daughter’s we often pop out to the brewer’s for a drink first. It is convenient and also has a great tradition real English pub atmosphere.WHEN ARE THEY OPEN?The hours are pretty long really so you would be unlucky to find t...Read More

The WaterfrontBatterseaI bought a few vouchers from 'Wowcher for using at this restaurant/pub in Battersea. It was handy as it is walkable from my daughter's flat.I booked a table for six and the vouchers entitled us to a main meal and a glass of Proseco each. We arrived a bit early and decided to have a drink so my husband went to the bar and bought a round. He nearly died when they told him how much it was for two glasses of wine and two pints of beer. The wine was £7.50 a glass. I can buy two bottles of wine from the supermarket for that or at least one good bottle . We realise there is a mark up but surely that is a lot. The beer was not quite so bad, just...Read More
