Sure, you love wagamama's chicken katsu curry. You order it every. single. time. It's one of the most popular dishes on Deliveroo for a reason, after all.
But there's more to the wagamama menu than their cult katsu dish. Swap your usual wagamama picks for these five alternative Japanese dishes and feel like you've discovered a whole new restaurant.
1. Swap Chicken Katsu Curry for…Chicken Raisukaree
We know the katsu combination of crispy chicken in panko breadcrumbs, aromatic curry sauce and sticky rice is pretty damn dreamy, but the coconutty-yet-citrusy chicken raisukaree triumphs on the flavour front.
This chicken curry is packed with veg (mangetout, peppers red and spring onions) and garnished with fiery red chillis, coriander and zingy lime. Winner.
2. Swap Steamed Chicken Gyoza for…Pork Belly and Panko Apple Hirata Steamed Bun
Asian fusion at its best. Wagamama's pork belly + panko apple hirata steamed bun. I would happily come here to devour these alone! ❤ #steamed #steamedbun #porkbelly #pork #chili #mayonnaise #mayo #asahi #beer #chopsticks #asia #asianfusion #vietnamese #steetfood #foodie #foodporn #instafood #wagamama #followme #porkbun #travelblog #fashion #food #travel
A mouthful to say but one incredible mouthful or two to eat, the Pork Belly and Panko Apple Hirata Steamed Bun is the cloud-like rival to the Steamed Chicken Gyoza. Get this fluffy pork belly bun delivered to your door, posted on Instagram and then down in just a couple of bites.
3. Swap Chilli Squid for…Lollipop Prawn Kushiyaki
Crispy chilli squid, like katsu-covered crispy chicken, sure is good – but you haven't tried prawn kushiyaki yet.
Seafood 'lollipop' skewers of grilled prawns marinated in lemongrass, lime and chilli, served with a caramelised lime. You won't regret it.
4. Swap Chicken and Prawn Yaki Soba for…Beef Chilli Ramen
Amen for ramen - especially when said ramen is packed with succulent and perfectly-pink beef, red onion, spring onions, beansprouts, chillies, coriander and fresh lime, and lolling in a rich noodly broth.
5. Swap Edamame with Salt for... Edamame with Chilli Garlic Salt
Edamame Beans with Chilli Garlic Salt 🌱 An excellent source of protein, iron, and calcium, a favourite appetizer at most Japanese restaurants, you will definitely enjoy this mix at @wagamama_bahrain which has newly opened at Bahrain City Centre. #PlateThat when you dine here and you'd be assured of a great start to your meal! #platethatinbh #bahrain #chilligarlicsalt #edamame #beans #wagamama #instafood #food #foodies #girlseatworld #yum #perfectappetizer #japanesefood
OK, so there really isn't a good-enough alternative to everyone's favourite sushi-bar snack. Wok-fried greens and Japanese pickles are wonderful sides, but could you devour a bowlful before the mains arrive? Didn't think so. Spice up this staple soy bean starter with chilli garlic salt.
