Munching in Manchester

A favorite eating  place in the UK, be it in London or Manchester, is Wagamama.

Food is good.  Service is efficient.  It’s nouveau cuisine in a Zen environment, with none of the pretentiousness of many hip pan-Asian food places.  The seating set-up is bench type.  The menu is a one-face affair, and the specials are on the paper “place mat” in the seat.

I got the Wagamama ramen in Manchester, at the Printworks last week.  My choice had chicken and veggies (mushrooms, etc.) swimming in vegetable broth.  I like that the taste is clean and uncomplicated.

For a while I struggled whether or not to have dessert, as this particular baby caught my eye —

White chocolate and ginger cheesecake?  Curious combination.  But I was full, and thought I had to delay gratification on that one (hence my notation — promise to myself).

That thought however held for a good 10 seconds.

I was weak, and gave in.

w4  WAGAMAMA!  Talk about heavenly.  This one tops the cake.  Ooops.

w5  I am happy to find out that Wagamama has 3 restaurants in Boston (in Harvard, the Faneuil Hall Marketplace, etc.) and one in DC.  None in Chicago yet, but hey, we have WowBao.
