There are those moments when I’m reminded how much I love living in cities and how much I love living in London. Tonight was a glorious summer evening on the Southbank, the Summer of Love festival is going on, people were drinking and relaxing on the terrace and I met Selena from Oh, the Places We Will Go at the Wahaca Southbank Experience.
Wahaca really is one of the best places to get — we can’t call it Tex-Mex but at least some kind of Mex — in the UK. It’s fresh, delicious, colourful. (As every Tex-Mex lover will know, true Tex-Mex tends to be all brown, served in a soupy mess and is absolutely gorgeously delectable.)
This location looks out over the South Bank urban beach and is constructed out of shipping containers, a concept that’s caught on as a hallmark of with-it architecture even if it’s not necessarily as green as it first appears. (You can watch the video of how they built the pop-up.) But when you’re holding a watermelon margarita, eating creamy guacamole and people watching on a sunny London day, it feels like there’s no better place to be.
Tell me, what’s your favourite British summer activity or something you’ve done lately with the kids or on your own that makes you love this time of year? Post a link or share a comment below!
