As we say goodbye to summer, wagamama is making the transition from good weather to bad more bearable this autumn as it welcomes a number of comforting new Japanese dishes with its new and exciting menu. Take refuge from the rain and cold and warm up in one of wagamama’s stylish and lively restaurants with their light and bright new ‘nikko’ curry – the perfect remedy for your autumn blues.
Even though the sunshine may be nowhere to be seen, wagamama has managed to capture it in a bowl with their exciting range of new ‘nikko’ curry dishes. Meaning “sunshine” in Japanese, whether you choose to enjoy your ‘nikko’ curry with vegan-friendly tofu and turmeric cauliflower, sea bream, or chicken and turmeric cauliflower, these vibrant yellow and green bowls will brighten up even the gloomiest and greyest of autumn days.
A fragrant and citrusy curry made with coconut, lemongrass and turmeric and featuring roasted butternut squash, tenderstem broccoli, mangetout, bok choi, beansprouts, chilli, coriander, garlic, fresh lime, and chilli oil, enjoy your dish with either white rice with sesame seeds, glass noodles, or brown rice and let the sunshine in. This is curry but not as you know – a delicious delight that will reinvigorate both your body and soul.
wagamama’s sunny new autumn menu also introduces two new sides which are perfect for sharing. The new chicken yakitori is served on skewers and marinated with spicy teriyaki sauce, shichimi and spring onions and achieves a perfect, simple balance, whereas their new vegan addition, the vegetable tempura, features crispy-fried tenderstem broccoli, red pepper, sweet potato, asparagus and wakame and is served with an irresistible sweet and sour dipping sauce. Light yet crisp and full of flavour, this is what all vegan food aspires to be.
