Wagaya, 315 Brunswick Street, FORTITUDE VALLEY QLD 4006

I know, I know, everyone's been talking about Wagaya, the (not so) newly opened Japanese restaurant in the Valley.

We went there for dinner during the week without a booking. Bad, bad decision. We were acknowledged by the restaurant's cashier and were told that the there would be a twenty minute wait. A word of advice: make sure that you book before you rock up at the restaurant. Man, did we wait. We waited like two very very hungry puppies.

I must say that the touch screen ordering system is very efficient. You see the pictures, touch what you desire, eat what you crave. But be sure that you don't go too crazy with the technology, as one can get overwhelmed with the choices and cancellation is not allowed once the order has been placed.

Dinner was simple. Tonkotsu ramen ($9.80), Wagaya shio ramen ($9.50), hamachi abari balls with miso ($10.80) and desserts consisted of crème brûlée and black sesame ice cream (both under $10.00 each). Both of the ramen dishes were pretty ordinary, the broth tasted powdery rather than creamy.  Crème brûlée was really disappointing, the top was not caramelised and the vanilla ice cream that accompanied the  brûlée tasted more rich than the cream custard itself.

All and all, I suppose Wagaya is a funky place to go to with friends. Reasonable price, extensive choice of drinks both non-alcoholic and alcoholic, fast service and great atmosphere.

Bunny Dollars Spent: $50.00 (or thereabouts).
