As part of wagamama’s value of spreading positivity from bowl to soul, a philosophy rooted in the belief that food doesn’t just feed our bellies, but our souls too, the Aberdeen restaurant served up classic guest favourites, amongst them the chicken katsu, ramens and iconic side dishes on their 50% plant based menu.

Wagamama Aberdeen reopened with the brand’s new Korean-inspired menu including wagamama’s first ever hot pots, with chicken, steak or silken tofu simmering in a spicy broth with seasonal vegetables and satisfying tteokbokki. The menu also sees the introduction of the Korean street food favourite, k-dogs, made with a vegan twist and a crunchy noodle crumb. Other items include the gochujang rice bowls, served with snow onions and available to order with chicken or shichimi tofu, plus a host of fresh new sides including rotis served with raisukatsu sauce for dipping, as well as mushroom skewers coated in a sweet chilli and miso glaze. Never forgetting the joy of ending a meal with something sweet, wagamama has also added a fresh new dessert to the roster in the form of their chouxnuts; combing soft doughnut and a crisp choux pastry with a choice of sweet matcha or kurumitsu black honey custard fillings.

Overseeing wagamama make its grand re-opening in Aberdeen, Milly Pearson, Regional Marketing Manager for the North, said: “We are so excited to open the doors to our bigger and better restaurant in Aberdeen.
