Wagamama, Boston Faneuil Hall: Very strong

While we were in the middle of our weekend, my wife had a craving for Chicken Katsu. And what better restaurant chain to satisfy that craving than Wagamama? So I booked in the morning for a late lunch on a long weekend at home.

The concept

The concept is simple and similar in all the chain’s restaurants: a simple setting with shared tables and a fairly short menu of traditional Japanese dishes, without sushi.


The setting

The setting is pleasant, as the restaurant is located in the Quincy Market, a covered market in downtown Boston.


The menu

The menu is very short indeed, with a handful of starters, a few main courses, and a handful of desserts. But for our craving, it was just perfect.


The meal and the dishes

We shared the fried calamari as a starter, which was excellent but very spicy 🌶️


The chicken Katsu was very good, but lacked a little seasoning.


The banana Katsu was a good little dessert, but not enough banana and too much breadcrumbs.

The service

The service was very attentive and fast.

The atmosphere

The atmosphere was relaxed, without fuss.

Bottom line

A good experience, which we would be happy to repeat.
