I was introduced to Wagamama in Amsterdam about a year ago by Stephen Donnelly, who was then project manager for the CMS that I built for Greenpeace. I absolutely loved the combination of a surprisingly great taste, fast service, informal atmosphere, and how good I felt after eating there.
It’s a complete surprise, too, because it’s a streamlined fast food restaurant with a standardized menu and computerized ordering, yet the food is both great tasting and healthy. Not your typical fast food place.
Today, I found and bought the cookbook by chance, and I’ve read most of it, and am really excited about getting started cooking stuff from it.
But best of all, as I was doing research for this post, I noticed to my great delight that they are opening a restaurant in Copenhagen this spring. I’m going to be there as soon as it opens and see if it’s as good as the one in Amsterdam. Yay!
