The enduring popularity of Japanese food in the UK is in no small part down to this national chain of dependable and popular noodle bars. The original Glasgow branch in West George Street is easily reached from all the main shopping thoroughfares and city centre offices, while its younger sister is to be found in the Silverburn shopping centre. Both can get pretty busy at peak times, though queues move quickly, as customers are whisked down to their bench seats by hip young staff. Favourite orders include katsu curries and teppan-fried noodle dishes; side orders like gyozas (steamed Japanese dumplings) and yakitori (skewered, marinated chicken). But more than any of these, diners tend to opt for the ‘ramen’ – zesty, hearty big bowls of ramen noodles in broth, filled with thinly sliced meat (or seafood) and lots of eastern vegetables. Slurping is encouraged.
wagamama is a celebration of asian food, inspired by japanese ramen bars and is a truly unique way to eat. A menu created to soothe, nourish and sustain, whether you choose a little ginger to warm you up, chillies that kick or noodles to nourish the body and soul. Pick from all kinds of rice and noodle dishes, alongside fresh salads and shareable sides – as well as feel good juices and expertly crafted asian beers.
wagamama have an extensive vegetarian, vegan and non-gluten menu offering as well as a kids menu for little noodlers.
