Where to eat… Wagamama’s


Wagamama is one of my favourites, and being Japanese, there are plenty of vegetarian options with tofu as its base.

Here is a list of the vegetarian options:

  • Yasai Ramen – traditional japanese omelette, crispy fried silken tofu and mixed mushrooms on top of noodles in a light vegetable broth
  • Yasai surendra’s curry – a rich, hot and spicy green curry made with jalapeño peppers, onions and ginger. topped with sweet potato straws and served with white rice. garnished with mixed sesame seeds
  • Yasai katsu curry –  vegetables coated in crispy panko breadcrumbs, covered in an aromatic curry sauce served with sticky white rice and a side salad
  • Yasai itame – rice noodles in a spicy green coconut and lemongrass soup topped with stir-fried beansprouts, red and spring onions, bok choi, peppers, mushrooms and chilli. garnished with coriander and lime
  • Yasai yaki soba –  soba noodles with egg, peppers, beansprouts, white and spring onions. garnished with fried shallots, pickled ginger and sesame seeds
  • Yasai pad thai –  rice noodles in an amai sauce with egg, beansprouts, leeks, chilli and red onion. garnished with fried shallots, peanuts, fresh herbs and lime
  • Yasai cha han donburi – stir-fried brown rice with egg, mushrooms, mangetout, sweetcorn and spring onions. served with a side of japanese pickles
  • Yasai shiitake donburi – shiitake mushroom and broccoli omelette served on brown rice in a teriyaki sauce. garnished with shredded carrots, spring onions, chilli and pea shoots
  • Yasai warm chilli salad – stir-fried red peppers, mangetout, tenderstem broccoli and red onion on a bed of baby gem lettuce, dressed in a sweet chilli sauce, garnished with spring onions and cashew nuts

Plus plenty of sides:

  • edamame – steamed edamame beans. served with salt or chilli garlic salt
  • wok-fried greens –  tenderstem broccoli and bok choi, stir-fried in a garlic and soy sauce
  • raw salad – mixed leaves, red onion, mooli and carrot. garnished with fried shallots and served with the wagamama house dressing
  • bang bang cauliflower – crispy, wok-fried cauliflower coated in firecracker sauce. mixed with red and spring onions. garnished with fresh ginger
  • Yasai Steamed Gyoza – steamed served grilled and with a dipping sauce

I had the Yasai Yaki Soba, which tastes fresh and the pickled ginger is a really nice touch. As a side, I had the Yasai Steamed Gyoza, and for dessert I had Wagamama’s famous White Chocolate and Ginger Cheesecake – always a winner.

Eat Without the Meat rating: 9/10
