I remember walking past Wagamama in London and looking at the long queue outside waiting to be seated in rainy 6 degrees. And in that moment I thought to myself that their food must be legit.
I recently received an invite to Wagamama in university city sharjah for a review and this name surely rang a bell in my head. I instantly said yes and went for the review. Its a lovely place with simple interiors, open kitchen and an outside seating area too.
Before I jump on the description of what I ordered and how it was, I want you to know that their service was top notch!
So, I ordered their steamed chicken and tomato buns that were cloudy soft to touch and were loaded with dynamite sauce, crispy fried chicken and thin slices of fresh tomatoes. I was left wanting for more, so much so that I think I’m going to order more of these the next time I visit. I found them brilliant! (quite, literally!)
Then I laid my hands on the best ramen I have ever had. (I swear!) The winner here was the ramen broth; complex and comforting. If you’re having a bad day, suffering from cold or anything. This ramen speaks to your taste buds on levels you don’t know exist before. The spring onions and red onions make so much sense and the lemon wedge on top equals to the cherry on this cake.
I also had the oh-so-famous Firecracker chicken to see what the fuss was all about and hey! the buzz is real. This dish is going to awestruck you in real ways. Now I know that this dish generally has a whole lot of spiciness in it but what me made me even more excited was the fact that there were other flavors in there too that weren’t overpowered by the high chilli quotient. Sweet, spicy, tangy- all of these were perfectly balanced.
So happy I ordered the wagamama iced tea (strawberry & mango) as it paired very well with the firecracker chicken.
I urge you to put this place on your bucket lists as it is definitely worth a visit!
