Friday night was another belated birthday date night. This time with my beautiful friend Anna.
When planning our evening, we chatted about a cocktail night in Chelsea, or dancing the night away with fizz in the City, but then Anna came up with an even better idea. Guaca!
Guaca is a real gem – a Mexican in Fulham. It is a little den of Mexican wonderfulness, not only the food, but the staff too – they are all super friendly.
We started with cocktails. I went for the Passion fruit frozen margarita.
They soon disappeared, so only one thing for it….another one (well, maybe two).
Before the food came, we popped our sombrero’s on (it is a must when eating Mexican).
Now the exciting part….the food.
Anna and I always go for a selection of starters to share, rather than a main.
We shared fresh guacamole, and a pile of hot tortilla chips.
Along with boneless chicken wings, smothered in delicious tangy sauce (they have a real kick), and potatoe skins with cheese and bacon.
Last but not least, we went for the chilli and tortilla chips (the chilli is probably my favourite thing, and the portion is a really good size for a starter).
There are so many starters to choose from, we almost ordered more….but we would’ve had to be wheeled out of the place.
After frozen cocktails and alot of food, I couldn’t even consider a pudding.
Oh no, Anna wouldn’t let me get away with that one. The place went dark, the music changed, and out came the Guaca guys with cake, with the tune of ‘happy birthday’.
And some free tequila. Ouch
After a great evening at Guaca we decided needed to dance, so off we set to the Durrell Arms, a pub on Fulham Road.
At the weekend, the Durrell has live music. I have never seen this band before, but they were great.
There was even a song dedicated to my red dress by the talented man in blue.
We danced our little socks off before heading home and into a state of Mexi-coma.
(I would highly recommend a trip to Guaca if you are in the Fulham area, and even better, they have a steak house round the corner which is just as good)
