The fantastic peeps at @dreams_beds wanted to know what we would do with the hour we lost when the clocks 'sprung' forward recently. Sleep would be nice, a leg massage would be lovely; but what I really wanted to do if I could 'snatch' back that hour was to go for a gorgeous lunch and spend an hour actually talking to my husband.
With work, meetings and other exciting occurrences (side note: read with a slathering of sarcasm) we, like many couples, resemble passing ships in the night. I can't actually remember the last time we spent time together outside of our home so when Dreams Beds said they would like to treat us to lunch so we could reclaim our hour (of sorts; they are good, but not Doctor-Who-type good!!) I could've kissed them!
Last week, the hubster, Baby Girl and I visited Wahaca in Stratford, London for a mexican treat.
It was Baby Girls first proper visit to a restaurant and she was amazing! The atmosphere was lovely and relaxed which was odd in such a busy place, but it was SO good to spend time together; to eat ( we did A LOT of that) to chat; to just feel like we had no worries other than to decide what to order next... Just for that one hour. It was bliss!
I have to tell you about the food - if you love mexican food you simply must visit Wahaca. It's now my favourite place to eat and I can't wait to go back.
We ordered the Wahaca selection which is a selection of favourite dishes from the menu. A selection it was, but O to the M to the G, the dishes just kept on a-coming! If you don't know what to order, or you're not sure if you'd like certain things, I'd recommend that you have a try of this as you get to try a "little" of everything.
My favourite by far was the Pork pibil taco; not only did it look magnificent with its bright pink hue, but it tasted to die for. I also loved the Huitlacoche quesadilla - If you don't know what that is, don't google it before you try it, I almost made that mistake but I can honestly say, hand on heart, it is gorgeous! Mmmmm yummy!
We also had sides of Spicy hot slaw and Sweet potato chunks and Tortilla chips with guacamole to start - all of which were very nice, indeed. The drinks were amazing too; as we had baby girl with us and we went quite early, neither of us had anything alcoholic but that really didn't matter - we both highly recommend the Virgin mojito!!
On to dessert. I got a tad excited over the dessert menu - I wanted it all, but with mentions of 'dense chocolate cake' and 'peanut butter ice cream , the Chocolate tres leches cake won without too much deliberation. Hubby chose a refreshing mango sorbet which was set upon by Baby Girl with muster. I think hubby got some of it!!!! Hee hee!
An absolutely wonderful way to spend a much-needed hour off.
Thank you so much Dreams Beds!
