Japanese cuisine has become unbelievably popular in the UK over the last few decades and with so many different types of Japanese food and restaurants to choose from, it can sometimes be overwhelming to decide where to go or what to order from this varied cuisine. Thankfully, high-street casual Japanese dining restaurant chain Wagamama is here to serve up simple but exciting dishes you’re bound to love.
Known for its ramens and katsu curries, you will find that most people pick one of these dishes and stick to it whenever they decide to visit. Although these are great dishes to opt for with so many different variations to choose from, there are also many other dishes that are worth giving a try too. Go for the avant gard’n kokoro bowl with barbecue-glazed seitan, veggies a vegan ‘egg’ and brown rice. Or if you feel like eating from the sea, the cod mokutan with black charcoal soba noodles is well worth a try.
Don’t forget to order a few sides to accompany your meal too. With the likes of chilli squid, bang bang cauliflower and beef tataki on the menu why not order a few different sides to share? This means you’ll get a taste of a variety of the enticing side dishes on offer.
Wash down your meal with a healthy freshly squeezed juice, Japanese beer or traditional sake. The drinks menu has options for everyone whether they are on a health kick, or fancy indulging and experiencing a little more of the Japanese cuisine.
To finish your Japanese feast, order a sweet treat off the dessert menu. Expect to find the likes of white chocolate and matcha cheesecake , banana katsu – for all the hardcore katsu fans out there – and salted caramel cheesecake with a wasabi and biscuit base.
This minimal, no fuss restaurant is the ideal place for a quick lunch or dinner and with such an extensive menu and so many varied dishes to choose from, it is no wonder why Wagamama has become a staple on the British high-street.
