Wagamama: New Mersey
wagamama is clearly in high demand in the North East as it has opened its second location in Liverpool, this time at New Mersey.
wagamama has had great success with its Liverpool ONE location and now takes a unit at the well-known shopping centre bringing its nourishing Japanese style menu and 70 new jobs to the local area with it.
There is no shortage of seats at the notoriously busy restaurant chain with a 130 internal seats and a small external outside dining area.
You can be sure all tastes are catered for with wagamama’s Asian-influenced menu. Famous for its cult classics such as chicken katsu curry, chilli chicken ramen, yaki soba, and beef donburi the restaurant has opened with their brand new summer menu.
wagamama caused a wave of excitement amongst the growing vegan masses in May as it introduced the vegan version of its notorious katsu curry, the “vegatsu”.
Speaking ahead of its opening, General Manager of wagamama New Mersey Jan Ullich said: “We have a great team and can’t wait to get the doors open to the shoppers of New Mersey. We already know the people of Liverpool love our food so we are really excited to be branching out to Mersey.”
Doors opened to the public on the 30th of June with a series of soft launch events prior to the official opening.
