Wagamama now does katsu curry ice cream

Wagamama now does katsu curry ice cream

Crazy for katsu? Ever wondered how the moreish, sweet and mildly spicy sauce would taste drizzled over ice cream? Wonder no more. Wagamama’s Noodle Lab is trialling exactly that. A just-opened test kitchen on Dean Street, Noodle Lab is experimenting with new dishes, rotating them monthly. There’s no chicken or pork in this particular experiment (thank God) but still... coconut ice cream with lashings of hot katsu curry sauce? If that sounds too out-there, you can try a more savoury katsu fix in the form of the ‘vegatsu’, made with seitan, the popular meat substitute. Katsu lovers, unite! The lab is open for business.

Wagamama’s Noodle lab is now open at 81 Dean St, W1P 3HP.

Had to give this a try! The experimental menu changes monthly and is a bit cheaper. The staff was fab!! I went to try the Katsu Curry ice cream. The coconut ice cream was delicious, but I did struggle with the curry sauce on it. But was fun to try!

Some of the new dishes are really delicious but the katsu curry ice-crea - as much as I live savoury ice-cream - are a miss. The coconut ice-cream itself is delicious but it just doesn't work with the katsu curry. I went with a friend that only goes to Wagamama for the katsu curry chicken and she couldn't take it either.
