New Dishes at Wagamama (June 2019)


I really do love to eat as healthily as possible and encourage my children to do the same.  One of our favourite healthy child-friendly restaurants to visit of course has to be Wagamama.  The children have their favourite dishes to choose from and my husband and I like to take a risk once in a while and try something NEW.  I know, we all need a little excitement in our lives.

I went along with the hubby and kiddies recently to see what new sumptuous delights were available.

Currently, there are 3 new additions to the adult menu.

The latest Dishes Include:

Naked Katsu (under 650 calories)

Grilled curried chicken on a bed of brown rice, with edamame beans, shredded carrots, dressed mixed leaves,  Japanese pickles and a side of katsu curry sauce.

Watching your calorie intake?  The Naked Katsu is a great alternative to the exceptionally popular fried option on the menu.  The curried chicken is naked rather than coated in panko breadcrumbs and isn’t deep fried.  This saves on numerous calories but does not compromise on flavour.  The chicken is cooked in a delicious curry sauce.  The Kastu curry sauce is served on the side giving you the option of how much you use.  Just so you know, it’s really tasty and you’ll want to lick the bowl when no one is looking to get every last drop.

The chicken was flavourful, tender and juicy and went well with the mix of accompanying vegetables.  The edamame had run out on our visit so my husband was given the option of other vegetables as a replacement.  He opted for mushrooms.  This is a hearty, warming dish and a great alternative to the original.  There were plenty of great flavours that worked synergistically to create an amazing dish.

Avant Gard’n (under 650 calories)

Made in collaboration with Gaz Oakley.  Barbecue-glazed seitan served with a coconut+ sriracha vegan ‘egg’, grilled shiitake mushrooms and asparagus on a bed of brown rice.  Topped with edamame beans, carrots and spring onions. dressed with a sweet amai sauce and garnished with sesame seeds and fresh lime.

This sounds like a lovely dish.  The white egg is made from coconut, the yolk part from sriracha and carrot juice.  I didn’t get to try this but it sounds like it would be amazingly flavourful and of course healthy.

Cod Mokutan Soba

Black charcoal soba noodles in a soy sauce with two fillets of miso-glazed cod, stir-fried bok choi, mangetout, red peppers and spring onions.  This is drizzled with a sweet miso dressing and garnished with fresh ginger and coriander.

A genius idea.  I’ve had miso-glazed-cod before and it’s such a delicious dish.  The flavours of this are so moreish.  The addition of the noodles and vegetables not only add more flavour, but they also make it nice and filling.  This was my favourite of the new additions.

Whilst we were enjoying these yummy NEW dishes the children were tucking into their favourite Wagamama meals.

If you’ve yet to try Wagamama or haven’t been for a while the kids think you should look at addressing this soon!  The range of food options is very good and caters for a variety of dietary restrictions and preferences.  It’s ideal for family dinners, date nights and get-togethers with friends.
