New look for wagamama Chelmsford
wagamama has opened its first new look and feel location in Chelmsford.
The Japanese inspired restaurant’s arrival into Chelmsford has been long-anticipated and not only will it be trialling the brand’s fresh new look it will also be the largest wagamama restaurant in Essex.
The subtle change in the restaurant design will introduce a modern take on some classic Japanese and Southern Eastern architecture and interiors. wagamama design director Mark Standing said: “Our philosophy of ‘kaizen’, meaning good change, is embodied in our Chelmsford restaurant where we have brought our Japanese influence to life through a number of design cues.”
Famous for its cult classics such as chicken katsu curry, chilli chicken ramen, yaki soba, and beef donburi wagamama will also open with new dish the ‘vegatsu’, the vegan take on their legendary katsu curry. The vegatsu created a wave of excitement from the vegan community when it launched earlier this summer.
The team opened with their brand new summer menu and a street party to celebrate the arrival into Chelmsford. This wagamama street party took inspiration from traditional Japanese food, drink and arts and included a preview taste of the wagamama menu, Sake tasting and Haiku writing classes.
Speaking ahead of the opening, General Manager of wagamama Chlemsford, Steven Sudds, said: “We can’t wait to open our doors, we’ve already been made to feel so welcome by the great people of Chelmsford and the whole team are so excited to get started.”
wagamama officially opened its doors to guests on August 6th with restricted opening hours. The restaurant resumed normal opening hours from August 20th.
wagamama launched its first restaurant in London over 25 years ago and now has 140 restaurants around the globe.
