I was excited when I found out that Wagamama’s introduced a vegan menu, I couldn’t wait to visit and try it out.
The link to the menu is below:
What I ordered:
To start: Yasai steamed gyoza – five tasty steamed yasai dumplings, served grilled and with dipping sauce.
I really enjoyed these, tasty and light which I was pleasantly surprised by, as my first thought was they would be heavy and would fill me up. Other than these, there isn’t many other options for starters other than wok-fried greens and edamame with salt.
For main: Yasai samla curry – a fragrant, spicy lemongrass and coconut curry with tofu, peppers, shiitake mushrooms and baby plum tomatoes, served with white rice and garnished with spring onions, chilli and coriander.
First thought, it smells delicious and is presented well. I don’t have much experience in eating tofu but I did not like the tofu in this curry. It felt deflated and the texture was ‘odd’ but I know a weird texture can be normal with tofu. However, I avoided the tofu and mixed the rice with the sauce and this was delicious.
I enjoyed these dishes, however I do not think I would order the ‘yasai samla curry’ again, the next time I visit Wagamama’s I want to try the yasai pad-thai.
If anyone else has visited and has any recommendations then please share your thoughts.
