Live in the USA or going to visit? Have a look at my reviews of products, restaurants and cafe’s in the United States of America to find out where and what to eat!
I used to eat at Wagamama all the time and loved it. But after being diagnosed with coeliac disease I visited Wagamama in Sydney and found out that I could only eat one item on the menu and it was far from the best dish I had had there. So I didn’t go back for many years.
