About
Three converted Georgian terrace houses in the heart of Fitzrovia make up Wahaca Charlotte Street, which offers award winning street food in the restaurant, a tortaria market shop stacked full of hard to find Mexican ingredients and Wahacito - a takeaway deli for lunch on the go. Head upstairs to the Mezcaleria cocktail bar for post-work or weekend drinks, available for parties and private hire.
