RESOLUTIONS NEEDN’T COST THE EARTH AT WAHACA Planet-friendly street food on the house, no-alcohol margs and a meat-free Brighton supper club

Getting the year off to a suitably sustainable start, Mexican-inspired restaurant group Wahaca is serving up veggie and vegan delights at a special Meat-Free Mexican supper club with co-founder Thomasina Miers in Brighton, as well as giving customers the chance to try a selection of its most planet-friendly street food on the house throughout the month. And raise a booze-free glass to 2023 with Wahaca’s first ever non-alcoholic margarita, making a timely debut for Dry January.

Taking over the kitchen of Wahaca Brighton (160-161 North Street, BN1 1EZ) on Wednesday 18th January, the restaurant group’s co-founder Thomasina Miers will be serving up a selection of plant-powered dishes at a one-off Meat-Free Mexican Supper Club that celebrates the vibrant diversity of plant-powered Mexican food. Inspired by the former Masterchef winner’s recent cookbook of the same name, the Meat-Free Mexican menu will include Tenderstem & Crown Prince tempura with jalapeño & lime drizzle, marvellously moreish Mushroom tostadas, Tamales with spinach & yellow mole, Grilled hispi cabbage with root vegetable mash & ancho relish, and finishing with Orange ricotta doughnuts with hibiscus sugar. A fully vegan version of the menu will also be served. Tickets are priced at £45 per person and go on sale via from 3rd January.

Breaking new ground in 2022 as the first British restaurant group to introduce carbon ratings to its menus, Wahaca has made a New Year’s resolution to show people that moving towards a more planet-friendly diet isn’t as big a leap as they might think. As such, the restaurant group is inviting everyone to try free plant-powered, low carbon dishes throughout January. Make a mouth-watering choice of Ancho mushroom tacos, Zesty bean & feta tostadas or Crispy cauliflower bites, with vegan versions of each dish (except cauliflower bites) available. These plant-powered dishes are from Wahaca’s street food menu, 50% of which is now meat-free – and each of them has a ‘low impact’ carbon rating. And they’ve been created with sustainability firmly in mind, using some of the freshest and most responsibly-sourced ingredients available.

Made a resolution to drink less this year? Wahaca’s first ever Non-Alc Margarita (£5.95) is just the ticket for Dry January. Pentire Adrift botanical non-alcoholic spirit is shaken with lime and agave and served on the rocks with a chilli salt rim and a slice of jalapeño. It’s just as vibrant and deliciously indulgent as a classic margarita but without a drop of alcohol. Beer fans wanting to go booze-free can wash down their tacos with a Lucky Saint (£4.95) – a refreshing, alcohol-removed Bavarian lager with a citrus hop finish.

Thomasina Miers commented: “The start of the year is traditionally a time for cutting back  – but this shouldn’t mean that there’s any reason to miss out. We want to inspire customers to try new things and enjoy food that’s both delicious and planet-friendly – we hope that our January supper club and complimentary low-carbon dishes will do exactly that!”
