Hello Weekend - Wagaya

I like to stay home during the weekends, to have a sleep in and a lazy day with the mister. But there are times I just want to go out and explore the city and this was one of those weekends.

We have been wanting to try Wagaya but never seemed to be able to get a table! So we decided to grab an early reservation this time to avoid the crowd and any possible disappointment. The booth seats are perfect for a night out in the city. It allows for diners to have a cosy feel while eating and also gives a little bit of privacy.

They also have an interactive ordering system, where guests order directly with the screen placed at each table. This takes away the sometimes annoying part of getting the server's attention on a busy night so that was a pleasant part of the night that we loved. It also allowed for the staff to focus on serving the food, which meant less distractions and food coming out faster.

We started the evening with Home Made Gyoza and these were yummy. Cooked to a perfect crisp and the filling had a bite, which is a plus.

The Tonkotsu Ramen was tasty and filling, but I don't know if I will order this again as there is a lot more on offer on the menu that we need to try!

We ordered a whole lot of fried stuff - Ika Fry, Chicken Karaage and Deep Fried Octopus. All of them arrived hot and crisp, and would have made perfect accompaniments to mugs of icy cold beer!

The meal ended with Hamachi Aburi Roll with Miso. That was the highlight of the night for me. The top of the sushi roll was still warm and the touch of miso was the perfect addition to the overall flavour of the sushi roll.

Overall, the meal was not the best Japanese I have had, but one must remember that Wagaya is more of a casual get together and it is perfect for that. I have my eye on the Mentaiko Spaghetti and many other dishes so I think we will be back!
