For my son’s birthday we had a family lunch at Wagamama Subiaco. I’ve been to Fremantle shop few years ago (which had been now closed for business) so I knew this restaurant is not a proper Japanese restaurant ; their menu is definitely a fusion of Asian cuisine. But we went there anyway!
They do “kids eat free!” – a child eats for free when an adult purchases a main meal. This offer is available everyday!
Hiro chose “mini yakisoba” (stir-fried noodle), and his baby cousin chose “mini cha-han” (stir-fried rice). These say “mini” but the dish was pretty big. They both couldn’t finish their meal. I thought they taste bit too salty, but I guess that’s how local people like it.
I ordered “chicken katsu curry bento”.
My party ordered “pork belly ramen noodle”, “yakisoba”, “teriyaki salmon with rice”, and “teriyaki beef bento”.
“Chicken katsu curry bento” – the curry is not Japanese curry – it contains coconut cream. I didn’t like the rice too – too mushy They probably don’t bother using expensive Japanese rice (short grain). And, I was surprised the difference of meal size between “teriyaki salmon” and “bento”. ”Bento” contained just small amount of rice, but “teriyaki salmon” contained big mountain of rice on its plate.
Well. atmosphere is nice and the staff were friendly. We had fun over all.
We ordered desserts as well.
We ordered “banana katsu”, “coconut creme brûlée”.
“Banana katsu” came with coconut ice cream on side, and ”creme brûlée” came with chocolate brownie spring roll on side. Creme brûlée and brownie spring roll weren’t very sweet. They were all ok, but next time I’d probably just order ice cream if I want some dessert. Ice cream flavours include vanilla | coconut | lychee | green tea | black sesame seed |, and I think they are much better choice.
