Wagamama announces first-ever brunch menu


On Wednesday 17th July, wagamama will launch a brand new, mouthwatering brunch menu, marking a first for the iconic restaurant chain. It’s brunch, done the wagamama way. Brunch will be served at selected wagamama sites from 8.30am to 11.30am with wagamama opening its doors to customers earlier than ever before. The brunch menu will be available across 22 key locations in London, North and South of the country.

wagamama’s team of chefs are forever innovating and have curated a menu featuring elements from all-time wagamama favourites with a breakfast twist, through to exciting new takes on brunch classics. The brand-new brunch menu means guests can experience brunch the wagamama way with their choice of either small plates, larger plates or sharers for the bench.

Highlights include the chicken katsu waffle, bringing together two iconic dishes, the waffle and katsu chicken. It features a perfectly golden-brown waffle topped with wagamama’s infamous crispy panko-crusted chicken. Customers can choose a savoury or sweet topping for their waffle, opting for either the classic katsu sauce or a miso caramel vegan ice cream with rich toffee sauce. For a plant-based alternative, wagamama will serve up delightfully indulgent banana katsu waffles, for a sweet, soft and crunchy dish.

Inspired by its customer demand for bao buns, wagamama has worked on a series of ‘morning baos’. The fluffy buns are filled with a choice of bacon, sausage, vegan bacon or vegan sausage. The menu will also include moreish sides, such as the crispy Japanese style corn fritters and bold, flavourful bang bang hash browns. Perfect for sharing so that everyone gets a taste.

Kay Bartlett, Chief Marketing Officer said, “We’ve seen an increase in consumer demand for an all-day dining offering and appetite for brunch dishes. This announcement is in response to that, and we’re thrilled to introduce our wagamama take on brunch. The decision to open our restaurants at 8.30am has involved a great amount of hard work and dedication from our brilliant teams and we’re all really proud and excited about this latest round of innovation and chapter in the wagamama story.”

If you fancy a delicious latte between friends or a simple americano, wagamama is now also open for a quick coffee stop. wagamama is launching a collaboration with the sustainable, London-born coffee brand, Grind who will be providing all the beans, ensuring a tasty cup of coffee every time. In July, wagamama and Grind will be going on the road with the Grind bus, watch this space for further information. wagamama also continues to partner with Jenki, with the delicious new matcha latte and the iced strawberry and matcha latte.

Wagamama has added a selection of cocktails and mocktails to round out their brunch experience. Highlights include a breakfast in tokyo, a sweet and zesty papaya gin with a blood orange and a yuzu sherbet kick, topped with prosecco and a spicy mary, their take on a classic served with haku vodka, soy, teriyaki and spices (also available as a mocktail).
