Colourfully vibrant, packed with flavour and perfect for sharing  – a street food feast for two at Wahaca has all that’s needed for a deliciously different date-night this February. With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, the Mexican restaurant group has expanded its collection of sustainable set menus for two, as well as debuting some tasty new specials to mark the occasion.

Wahaca’s Set menus for two are the suitably-shareable selections of delicious, sustainable street food dishes – and with Classics, Favourites and Veggie set menus available, couples can focus on gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes rather than worrying over what to order (prices from £37 for two). Just launched too is a plant-based sharing menu – from Ancho mushroom tacos to Zesty bean tostadas and Black bean & vegan cheese quesadillas, the new Vegan set menu (£38 for two) takes in some of Wahaca’s tastiest plant-powered dishes and is perfect for a vegan Valentine’s.

Street food fans feeling inspired to enjoy more plant-based eating in 2022 will love the new Falafel tacos (£6.25). Known as a “Mollote” in Mexico, the falafel-like bites that fill the two tortillas are made with chickpeas, beetroot and mushroom along with a mix of toasted spices. They’re packed full of flavour and texture on their own, but when layered with sweet red onions, fresh tomatillo-guac and a spicy vegan habanero cashew crema the result is a taco that’s marvellously moreish as well as being completely meat-free. Share if you can bear!

Couples feeling fruity this February can raise a romantic glass to their loved one with the new Pineapple mezcal sour (£7.95) – all the smokiness of a mezcal-based cocktail but with a hint of sweetness provided by the pineapple and a squeeze of fresh lime to give a zesty citrus lift. Traditionally sours are made frothy with egg white but this one stays true to Wahaca’s sustainable principles by using the leftover chickpea water from its Bean tostada street food dish instead – so it’s totally vegan as well as being perfectly planet-friendly.

The new specials are available now and 20p from the price of each will be donated to charities close to Wahaca’s heart, both in Mexico and the UK.
