We went to Wagamama for lunch. We had been shopping at the Mall in Bristol and were all feeling a little hungry.
The Wagamama at the Mall at Cribbs Causeway is in a weird open location at one end next to Marks and Spencers on a mezzanine overlooking the entrance. There are the regular benches and long tables, but there are also booths as well. We were given a nice friendly welcome and sat down at our table.
I was wondering what to have and decided to go for something different.
I quite liked the sound of the cod dish, which was cod mokutan soba, black charcoal soba noodles in a soy sauce with two fillets of miso-glazed cod, stir-fried bok choi, mangetout, red peppers and spring onions. drizzled with a sweet miso dressing and garnished with fresh ginger and coriander.
Unfortunately my fish was overcooked on the point of being burnt, so I had to send it back. When it came back it looked a lot better.
I really liked the black charcoal soba noodles, and the miso-glazed cod had a lot of flavour.
It was the kind of dish I enjoyed, but probably wouldn’t have it again on another visit.
My other half went for a curry.
Chicken nikko curry, a fragrant coconut, lemongrass and turmeric soup with chicken, roasted butternut squash, turmeric cauliflower, tenderstem broccoli, mangetout, bok choi and beansprouts. garnished with chilli, coriander, fresh ginger, lime and chilli oil. served with a side of rice with sesame seeds.
I think she made the better choice.
Service was warm and friendly and overall we enjoyed the lunch.
