Dinner out at Wagamama was a pleasant surprise. Though the interior is bright and filled with benches and long tables, it feels nothing like a cafeteria and is surprisingly quiet considering the starkness.
I ordered the Chicken Itame and enjoyed the Mochi special (a trio of coconut, green tea, and peach?) for dessert. Conor had several side dishes instead of one main course: Gyoza, Rice, Miso Soup, Pickles. When we go back, I think it would be better to order one main dish to share and a few small side dishes to share as well.
The food comes out once it is ready so not everything is served as you’d expect it (my main course was out several minutes before Conor’s Gyoza).
The ingredients were fresh and delicious. I recommend this place is you want to taste the ingredients in your food and know they haven’t been sitting on a shelf for eons.
Please excuse the photo of my main course. It doesn’t look nearly as appealing after I’ve devoured it, but it just smelled so good I dove in and forgot to take a “before” photo. But I am including a “before” photo of my dessert.
