Lucky girl that I am, I spent Sat night in Wahaca, Covent Garden eating 'Mexican Street food'. A noisy and colourful experience - just like a street market should be.

Walking in, downstairs into the bustling bar, you get a real sense of excitement. My first thought was - 'where's the tequila!'

I hear it on good source that the interiors were constructed using recycled materials [gold star']. The 'colour' comes from the green and blue glass panels and the acoustics, which make for a lively evening.

The informal benches, wood panelling on the walls and displays of Mexican food produce make the street market experience that little bit more real, but then the warehouse style lighting and dance music bring it squarely into 21st London town.

This is a happy place to eat.
