I should’ve written this ages ago! Again, this occurred when I was living in the old house but with other articles having priority and with so many events it had to take a back seat…UNTIL NOW!!!
I loove Wagamama’s!! It has incredibly nice food and the atmosphere is always warm and friendly. I love the location of the Wagamama’s in Cardiff Bay, there is an outside to it where you overlook the Millennium Centre and the Roald Dhal Plas which is always pleasant and vibrant in the summer, always full of people of all ages. Nothing like people watching while enjoying some good ol’ Asian food. The service is always friendly too and when I arrive they seat me next to the edge which means I have a nice view of the Bay while I eat. I’ve already decided that I want a full course starting with something light and for my main meal treat myself to something new, I’ve becoming tired of the same old Chicken Katsu Curry and also I wanted a dessert and then I would be sorted for the whole day, it’s not often I treat myself to a full course meal so why not now?
Anyway let’s get to the food….
For my starters I stick to my favourite type of food which is gyoza’s. Every Asian restaurant I visit I always have gyoza’s whether it’s a starters or a side dish however it’s always chicken or vegetable gyoza’s. Turns out that Wagamama’s has changed it’s menu since my last visit and I find out they have many different fillings for their gyoza’s now which also include the option of ‘steamed’ or ‘grilled’. I decided to opt for the steamed pulled pork gyoza which tastes absolutely glorious!!! Sweet and succulent. I recommend it. A lot.
So here it comes the main meal and I decide I want to try something new so I decided to look at the ramen section of the menu and there is one option on the menu that has really caught my eye… it’s called a Wagamama Ramen. It includes grilled chicken, barbecue pork, prawns, chikuwa and mussels in a miso, ginger and chicken noodle soup, topped with a half a tea-stained egg, menma and spring onions. My opinion?? It tasted healthy and not in a bad way, I didn’t feel bloated and it tasted amazing, so many different flavours I can’t really describe it. You have to taste it to really appreciate it.
I opt for the Banana Katsu which is a banana covered in panko breadcrumbs with a scoop of salted caramel ice cream. This is the first time I’ve ever tasted salted caramel and it tastes really nice!! Not as salty as I thought, well not salty at all.
All in all, this was a fantastic meal, I didn’t feel overly full, just enough to keep me going for the rest of the night.
