Hey people arriving from Google – this post is a bit out of date so I’ve done a new version – click here to find the latest Wagamama calorie information.
It’s been a good few months now since I posted my list of where to find the calorie information for most of the UK chain restaurants – and, it was obviously a good idea as every day loads of people check it out (Frankie and Bennys is hugely popular with the calorie counting set!). At the time I told you that noodle gurus Wagamama were planning on publishing their calorie info in the near future – and now that day is here.
I only discovered this myself last week when, due to strange circumstances, I ended up eating there twice in one day. I was therefore searching online for some idea of what might cause least damage while doing this only to discover a whole new nutrition section on their website. You’ll find it here if you want to visit it…http://www.wagamama.com/dietary/nutrition-info
It is one of those annoying ones where you have to click on each dish to get the calories within it – I prefer the ones where everything is in a long list so you can immediately see which item will make me feel most saintly – but, like so many of these things it does throw up surprises. I had recently switched my allegiance from the Yaki Soba (728 calories) to the Firecracker Chicken – thinking a dish that combined stir fry chicken with vegetables and plain rice had to be less calories than one containing fried noodles. Wrong – Firecracker Chicken contains a whopping 1141 a portion – 413 calories more!
So to save you making the same mistakes, here are the lowest calorie options Wagamama have to offer.
The absolute lowest calorie meal you can order is the Mixed Selection of sushi at 346 calories. However, if you’re not a raw fish fan here’s the best choices from the other menu options….
Ramen: Grilled Fish – 478 calories
Teppanyaki: Yasai Yaki Soba – 665 calories
Curries: Prawn Itame – 746 calories
Donburi – Chicken Tama Rice – 917 calories
Chilli – Prawn Chilli Men – 855 calories
Sides (not including soup or edamame) – Ebi Gyoza – 221 calories
I’m hungry now…..
