Table manners aside as one slurps their way to ‘kaizen’
March is the month of Ramen at Wagamama. To celebrate and create awareness on the right way of enjoying a warm, delectable bowl of Ramen, Wagamama hosted a successful event called ‘Social slurping’ on the 6th of March 2017 at Wagamama, Golden Mile 1, Palm Jumeirah.
At Wagamama, the philosophy of ‘kaizen’, which stands for good change, is central to everything they do. Inspired by the fast-paced, Japanese ramen bars, Wagamama is a celebration of the fresh and nourishing flavors of Asia.
Social slurping aims at conveying two main beliefs, social sitting and slurping. Throughout the month of March, Wagamama will be celebrating ramen is all its glory.
Social slurping invites people to leave their table manners aside and enjoy a scrumptious, fresh and flavorful bowl of ramen, slurping ones way to the end. The only way of enjoying a soul-ful, bowl-ful of Ramen is, slurping it right.
Situated in one of my favorite locations of Dubai Palm Jumeirah , Wagamama is tucked inside Golden Mile 1, Golden Mile is home to many eateries. Peaceful and calm environment with an outdoor seating arrangement , views of Shoreline apartments and enjoying the lush green plantation one can spend great hours while enjoying Japanese delicacies.
Our dinner experience at Wagamama was amazing , the interesting menu at Wagamama serves both veg and non-veg customers. We were served a mixed menu which included duck, squids, chicken , vegetables, tofu etc. The recipes with new flavors & spices are so indulgent. We started with our refreshing drink and our first course…
Raw … this drink was a mix of carrot, cumber, tomato , apple & orange. It was neither sweet nor very sour but a mild refreshing drink, sounds so good for digestion.
We enjoyed making & building our mini Duck Wraps, yes the serving plate had shredded crispy duck ,chopped cucumber & spring onions, mini Asian pancakes & Cherry Hoisine Sauce. We filled up the pan cakes with shredded duck meat, chopped vegetables and enjoyed with sauce.I am not very fond of duck meat but here the shredded duck was prepared very deliciously which was soft and at the same time a bit crispy . Do try the wraps.
Next came a bowl of Steamed Edamame beans.
Chilli Squid …. enjoyed every bit of deliciously done crispy fried squids dusted with shichimi accompanied by chilli coriander dipping sauce .
Slurp Slurp ….. Sip Stir Slurp Repeat
Next came the King dish big bowl of Ramen Noodles….. Yasai Ramen.
This is an amazing quite rich dish perfect for veg lovers. Even for those looking for light & healthy meals will enjoy this bowl of Yasai Ramen.
It had traditional Japanese Omelette , crispy fried silken Tofu, and mixed mushrooms on top of Noodles in vegetable broth. Delight your taste buds with healthy flavorful vegetable broth and with each sip of broth have a different bite like big chunks of omelette, tofu and noodles.
Katsu Curry ….. It had an option of Chicken or vegetables. We had it with chicken. The dish is too good. The combination of flavors was great , crispy sliced chicken pieces are served with sticky rice and fresh salad leaves. The flavorful aromatic curry sauce which is served along goes perfectly well with chicken fillets fried with panko bread crumbs. It is a big sized platter with two pieces of big chicken fillets, enough curry sauce and rice. Good for two people.
Dessert – Banana Katsu …. Banana slices were cut longitudnally and fried with panko bread crumbs which were served with salted caramel icecream. So if you enjoy desserts with combinations like warm and cold temperature and sweet & salty flavors in a bowl , than you will enjoy this bowl.
