Over the spring break, hate calling it that as it sounds dead American, I travelled back home to spend time with my family and friends to totally chill and disconnect from my new city life as it was getting a bit too much for me anxiety wise. After a week of this I will admit I was starting to miss it so my bestfriend, Kirsty, and I decided we'd go back to Glasgow and meet up for some lunch and that's what we did.
Kirsty and I don't go out for lunch often as we are taking seperate classes at different campuses but we see each other everyday as we live in the same halls, because of this we decided we go somewhere a bit 'special' instead of the usual KFC... We walked up Buchanan street discussing where we could go and what we felt like and we couldn't decided. We ended up at a place called Bread Meets Bread but it was going to be a 25 minute wait and seeing as we couldn't be bothered we went somewhere else and I'm honestly so glad because we ended up at Wagamama.
Everything on the menu looked amazing and the smell in the place was incredible. Kirsty and I took ages in decided what we wanted. Lots of people had these big bowl things and we discovered that these were ramen dishes. That's what I decided to go with and got the Wagamama Ramen which is
grilled chicken, barbecued pork, prawns, chikuwa and mussels in a miso, ginger and chicken noodle soup topped with half a tea-stained egg, menma and spring onions. It tasted amazing and smelt amazing. I honestly can't praise it enough! I'm really glad that I chose that but it was dead filling and really interesting to eat what with all the different things in it.
It took us ages to decided what we wanted to eat because everything looked so good on the menu as well as it all looking so foreign. When it was our time to order we hadn't even looked at drinks but our server suggested their fresh juices and it was such a good suggestion! I got the Fruit Juice which had apple, and passion fruit in it and Kirsty got the Blueberry Spice Juice which was blueberry, apple carrot with a spice of ginger. We both had a try of each other's and they were so tasty!
Our time at Wagamama was really good if not a bit strange at times. Why you may ask well we noticed everything we ordered a number would be written on the place mat it took us ages to notice that all of the dishes were numbered so if you claimed they had brought the wrong food then they had proof they didn't! Another strange thing was that the food came as soon as it was ready like my main dish came before any of the sides or Kirsty's main dish. I felt a bit awkward with my dish and Kirsty not with her's so I didn't start until we both had them.
Wagamama describe their food as; fresh, lively food (with soul) and I couldn't agree more! I can't wait to go back and try more of their menu! It you haven't gone then I really recommend you do!
