WE EAT OUT FAIRLY REGULARLY AND WITH THIS I FACE A PROBLEM. I’m trying to be good about what I eat and dining out is not easy to combine with calorie watching. So, at the moment, I am searching for the best healthy restaurants in Glasgow. Wagamama’s has been around for a long time but it isn’t a place I have frequented recently. However, I heard that their meals, particularly the Ramen dishes, are relatively healthy, so we decided to give it a revisit.
Ramens are a very popular meal in Japan. The first Ramen shop opened in 1910 in Yokohama, Japan, and became incredibly popular with the local population. Almost every region in Japan has its own style of ramen. A ramen is basically a noodle broth topped with meat, fish or vegetables. Or all three.
Just8 had the Wagamama Ramen. It contains chicken, pork, prawns, ginger and mussels. The calorie count is 681 calories per meal. I thought this was not too bad for an eat-out dinner – particularly as the saturated fat content is 6.3g and sugar content, 7.1g. I remember having a Ramen in the past and finding it a little bland, however this one was far from it. It had lots of seafood, so there was a good flavouring of salt and the noodles definitely satisfied my hunger.
My dining companion chose the delicious Chicken Raisukaree curry – a wonderfully creamy coconut curry with more than a hint of spicy Thai flavours in there. Lovely as a treat but probably not Ideal if you happen to be watching what you eat (at 1253 calories a pop).
Both dishes were beautifully presented, as you can see below.
I was taken with the free green tea as a palate cleanser.
I loved the tasty, healthy meal and vibrant, busy atmosphere in Wagamama’s. I feel like I have rediscovered Wagamama’s and will visit again soon.
Just8 scores Wagamama’s – 8.5/10. I will definitely remember to come back here more often!
