Wagamama embrace the world of vegan food

One of the most wonderful things about foodie life in 2017 is that we all have choice when it comes to what to eat. Best of all, most restaurants nowadays cater for almost all diets.

At Wagamama, the emphasis has always been on positive eating since this chain opened in the UK, and with many health-conscious foodies embracing vegan diets these days, it seems very logical to see the chain develop a fully vegan menu. We headed to the White Rose centre Wagamama to sample the menu earlier this month.

To start with, we decided to stick with what is obviously a traditional vegan option, ordering some edamame beans, but we also mixed things up a little with some vegan gyoza, stuffed with yasai and steamed until plump and juicy. These were really good with the dipping sauce, and as far as we were made aware, you can also enjoy them with the chilli oil on the table in Wagamama should you want to inject more of a spicy kick.

For my main dish, I opted for yasai yaki soba with udon noodles. If you don’t like mushrooms, this dish is not for you – this was mushroom-heavy! However, as a mushroom fan, the flavour of this was spot on. For anyone who fears the notion of eating vegan food, this was a great example of what vegan food can be all about.

Although we also tried the more traditional dishes from Wagamama like chilli chicken ramen, we were really intrigued by the vegan options on offer. At Wagamama, it’s clear that you don’t need to compromise if you follow a vegan diet – there is so much choice on their dedicated menu that you really can feel spoiled.
