However we weren’t waiting in the queue for long, approximately 5 to 10 minutes as they were efficient getting people in-handing out vege and non vege menus to entice customers in. Which I believed worked on me, as I had already chosen what to have for my mains!
We both treated ourselves to some sake Rachel chose their Sho Chiku bai (Traditional sake mild yet complex) and I chose the Kyoto Yuzu (subtly sweet and fruity with yuzu and honey) there was a big difference in the taste between the two. Rachel’s sake had a more plumy flavour, compared to my deliciously sweet sake that I could easily drink without realising it, however I definitly realised how quickly I had drunk it when I went to stand up. Both were presented in beautiful sake cups, when our waiter poured it into the larger sake jug it flowed straight out of its spout and into the smaller sake cup like a little water foundation.
I chose their new tantanmen beef brisket ramen. I was intrigued from the description and because I’ve never had brisket before; Korean bbq beef brisket, served on a bed of noodles in extra rich chicken broth, topped with half a tea-stained egg, menma, kimchee and spring onions, finished with coriander and chili oil. This dish was full of flavour meaty, a satisfying amount of ramen and whole lot more! I was so impressed with the dish I ordered it the next day for lunch! The beef brisket was so tender and the ramen noodles were cooked to perfection- so far my favourite ramen dish!
Wagamamas is a great chain restaurant, you can’t go wrong with it, you can always find something good to eat and there a lots of different options available for all tastes. There are also lots of vegan, gluten free and vegetarian options. I don’t go enough but they have improved their menu since the last I time I visited. Highly recommend for a quick bite or at a leisurely meal.
