Leisure parks or complexes are one of those weird places that you can spend all day in and never run out of things to do. From cinema’s to bowling and this case – even a church – all your needs are covered. When it comes to restaurants, Wagamama is the place to go in this leisure park.
This Japanese restaurant serves up the likes of meaty and fishy ramens, classic curries and simply donburi rice bowls. But before you get stuck into mains, it is worth giving the exciting sides a try. Opt for the beef tataki, fried chilli squid or keep things simple with edamame beans.
When it comes to big dishes, sometimes it is nice to stick to the classics like ramen and chicken katsu curry. There are lots of other dishes to go for like the grilled duck donburi, cod mokutan with black soba noodles, steak bulgogi with aubergine, noodles and kimchee, to list a few.
If you have the kids tagging along (which since you are in a leisure park you most likely will), the kids menu, with a host of activities to keep them occupied is great. On it you’ll find mini chicken ramens, katsu and cha han stir fried rice and an ice-lolly or scoop of ice cream to finish.
Back to more adult matters – what to drink with your meal? On the drinks menu you’ll find a host of Japanese beers, sake, cocktails and soft drinks. If you’re on a health kick, the freshly squeezed juices or herbal teas may be the option for you (hint: the green tea is free and bottomless).
For those of you worrying about certain dietary requirements, you no longer need to. With long gluten free and vegan menus everyone can enjoy something at Wagamama. On the gluten free menu you can go for the chicken and prawn pad-thai and chicken or yasai itame. Wagamama continues to be a fail-safe restaurant for lots of the UK and Finchley Leisure park is no different.
