It is available daily from 8am until 12 noon exclusively at this newly launched outlet at Marina Mall. On weekends in the breakfast menu is also available in other Wagamama restaurants.

Our visit
We met Christopher Fernando - Wagamama's super friendly general manager who spent some good amount of time with us, explaining about his concept, the brand and what makes Wagamama one of the most popular eateries in the UAE.

We started off with some delicious iced teas and went on to appetizers including the famous Chili Squid, Tori Kara Age, Hirata Crispy Chicken and Lollipop Prawn. All the appetizers were standout and had the Wagamama quality that one would expect. Peppy side dips paired well with each of the dishes enhanced the taste and made for an appetizing appetizer session.

We just couldn't wait for the main course. In the mains I ordered Yaki Udon while my dining companion went for Teriyaki Duck Soba.

Yaki Udon had thick udon noodles in curry oil with chicken, prawns, chikuwa, egg, beansprouts, leeks, mushrooms and peppers and garnished with fried shallots, pickled ginger and sesame seeds. It was rich in condiments and very filling.

Teriyaki Duck Soba had succulent duck with soba noodles in curry oil, mangetout, bok choi, red onion, chillies and beansprouts in a teriyaki sauce. It was garnished with sesame seeds. Another great noodle dish totally appetizing.



Apart from these dishes we tried, Wagamama also offers a range of other dishes inspired by both the east and the west.

Guests who prefer breakfast at Wagamama can enjoy the brands signature okonomiyaki - a Japanese inspired omelet, as well as favourites like eggs benedict, avocado on toast, English breakfast, and apple & goji berry pancakes. All these dishes reflect the global brand’s positive eating philosophy and are designed to provide a nourishing start to any day.
