Love Mexican food? Knock yourself out with Wahaca’s epic Day of the Dead street-food Feasting menu. Available for one week only – from Monday 29 October to Sunday 4 November – this aptly named feast costs £25 (for two or more) – and booking is recommended (click here for more).  The street-food-style menu has been created in honour of the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations. It includes a host of traditional dishes with a British seasonal twist, Mexican drinks and everyone’s favourite, churros y chocolate (doughnuts plus molten chocolate sauce AKA heaven). Because everything is designed to share, the menu is suitable for two or more diners per booking and costs £25 per person. There’s another reason to visit Wahaca this month too – they’ve just been voted the most ethical chain restaurant in the UK. Manchester based Ethical Consumer magazine announced the list earlier this month, and their ranking system takes into account everything from how staff are treated to ingredient sourcing. High praise indeed!
