Wagamama Coming to the US

Wagamama_1

Anyone who has ever spent a semester abroad in London or even jumped across the pond for a long weekend with advice from friends has likely eaten a meal at Wagamama. The 14-year-old noodle-house chain, which now has 45 locations around the UK -- with additional spots in Australia, Dubai, Ireland, Turkey, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Denmark and Belgium, is finally coming to America. I first dined at the original Wagamama in London's Bloomsbury neighborhood shortly after it opened back in 1992 and went back to the Covent Garden space on this last trip. Wagamama still has the same cachet and fast-paced environment -- not to mention fantastic, inexpensive noodle, ramen, rice and curry dishes -- as it always has. The first spot is set to open in Boston's Faneuil Hall in early 2007 and when I spoke with someone at Wagamama HQ, she told me that Chicago is a very possible second spot.

How nice to find someone in the US who likes Wagamama... and doesn't it feel good to say the name? each trip back home (to London) I just have to have a Wagamama bowl of noodles and spices and coconut... I hope they keep the standards up when it finally reaches the US.
