WAGAMAMA, WHITE ROSE SHOPPING CENTRE, LEEDS 📍
There’s nothing better than something hot and soup-like whilst the weather is disgustingly rainy outside!🌧
We decided to go for a bit of window shopping today and went for a spot of lunch beforehand, and we all love Asian/Japanese food so decided on Wagamama’s ☺️ (it’s also really healthy too!)
We decided to order two dishes to share alongside our mains so we got the pork belly with panko apple and siracha hirata steamed buns, and the ebi katsu which was prawns in crispy panko breadcrumbs, coriander, fresh lime and a chilli and garlic dipping sauce. The hirata buns were so nice! Such an interesting texture but they were so tasty, and the pork belly was nice and crisp too. The sauce which came with the ebi katsu was lush as well!
For my main I decided on the chilli prawn and kimchi ramen which I’ve had before and posted on this page. It’s a spicy vegetable based broth with marinated tail on prawns, kimchi, beansprouts, spring onions, fresh lime and coriander. I love this dish mainly because it is so tasty and fresh! And it’s one at the healthiest dishes on the menu at 532kcal ☺️ (I’m not calorie counting anymore but I just remember from the last time we came🤣)
My mum got the new shiok chicken which was turmeric, garlic & ginger marinated chicken roasted and served on coconut and lemongrass rice. I tried a bit of hers and all I can say is the chicken itself was so succulent and really flavourful.
Molly chose a very popular Waga’s staple the chicken katsu curry, which was aromatic katsu curry sauce, chicken in crispy panko breadcrumbs, sticky white rice and a side salad. She did say it tasted quite spicy but nonetheless she did enjoy it.
You can also pay on your phones now due to COVID which I thought was quite a good idea! The bill did come to £53(🥴) and I have said before on this page that it is quite expensive, but it makes up for it being all so fresh and flavourful; so I’m definitely not complaining!
