Wahaca, celebrated for its fresh, social, Mexican market food, is confirmed to open in September at The Corn Exchange.

Wahaca was born in 2007, inspired by co-founder Thomasina Miers’ travels to Mexico, time spent running bars there and falling in love with the country and cuisine. After winning Masterchef in 2005 and cooking in a Michelin-starred restaurant, she teamed up with fellow Mexico enthusiast Mark Selby to open a UK restaurant that would reflect the vibrant colours, flavours and buzz of the country’s markets.

What they did overturned the Tex Mex notion of Mexican food, authenticity and a commitment to sustainability going hand in hand, with food locally sourced or transported with care for the envorinoment.

And now Wahaca is coming to Manchester.

Wahaca Manchester will seat 165 covers and additionally feature a deli, serving takeaway tacos and burritos to eat at home or ‘al-desko’.

Expect Time Out Manchester to be reporting back once this much anticipated restaurant launches come September.

Another great addition to the newly renovated Corn Exchange, Wahaca is a perfect spot to come with a group. If you're feeling sociable, you can get a selection of small, tasty tapas style dishes to share across the table. Or if you can't bare the thought of sharing, you can get a a larger dish for yourself.

Such a great addition to the city centre. I'm really fond of the chain in london and the expansion hasn't diluted the core values. Fresh food with local and Mexican fusion to make the most of delicious ingredients to hand. the menu changes frequently so you can get your old favourites or something brand new.

Good drinks- hibiscus mojito is amazing! And really food value too.

The store design is really colourful and doesn't feel clinical as can sometimes happen in these big renovations of old buildings, well worth a visit!
