The nation loves a wee Wagamama – a UK-wide chain serving Japanese fusion food in canteen-style surroundings.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The Glasgow branch of UK-wide chain Wagamama is like others in its canteen style, featuring plenty of wooden benches, which pack in everyone from solo diners to groups of pals. Known for bringing Asian-inspired food to the masses, the menu features big bowls of soup-based ramen, South East Asian curries, donburi rice bowls, and teppan-fried noodle dishes.There are also plenty of snacks on offer, like tama squid: hot, pungent, fishy balls covered in pastry so flaky that it flies everywhere if you so much as breathe in its direction. They are oddly delicious. Steak bulgogi comes well done on a bed of noodles with aubergines and a pile of crunchy kimchi. The chocolate and shichimi ice-cream is sweet and cooling until a ninja chilli jumps out of nowhere to whack you over the tongue with a cheeky burn – it’s a smile-inducing experience. With a menu for veggies and vegans, plus kids’ options, and some healthy extras, like the option to swap white rice for brown, an awesome range of fresh juices, and unlimited free green tea, Wagamama makes sure it caters for all.
