Wahaca To Spice Up Paddington With New Branch

Wahaca, the vibrant Mexican eatery is set to open its doors in Paddington this April.

The new restaurant will serve a menu of Mexican inspired small plates including tacos, taquitos and quesadillas, with more than 50% of the menu being meat free.

In line with the groups commitment to planet conscious dining the Paddington restaurant will be designed with sustainability in mind and will feature an all green energy and electric only kitchen.

The new venue will transport diners to the vibrant streets of Oaxaca in Southern Mexico. Channelling the vision of  co-founders Thomasina Myers and Mark Selby, the new interior will be full of the energy and vibrant colours of Wahaca’s culinary birthplace in Mexico.

Around 50 jobs are expected to be created at the Paddington restaurant, which will be led by seasoned general manager Rafael De Lima and head chef Mirko Emanuel.

Gemma Glasson, managing director of Wahaca, said: “Paddington is certainly on the up. The new development means it’s becoming a distinct destination in its own right in addition to its status as a major transport hub.

She added: “I hope that Paddington provides for our customers a re-imagined view of what it means to dine at Wahaca and I can’t wait to open our doors in April.”
