Veganism is on the up – but eating out when you don't go in for any animal products is a tricky one. So we're excited about the latest news from ramen etc. chain Wagamama, who've launched a menu of 29 dishes free of meat, dairy, fish, honey or eggs.
The timing's bang on: the number of people identifying as vegan has increased from 150,000 to half a million since 2006.
Exec chef Steve Mangleshot has recreated the restaurant's classic dishes with plant-based ingredients. We're talking a kare burosu ramen with vegetables and shichimi coated silken tofu in a curried broth; yasai-steamed gyoza and itame rice noodle curry.
Also available are vegan-friendly beers, wines and spirits.
"From this launch, we will be listening to our fans to make sure we are constantly adapting and innovating to meet customer desires and a modern lifestyle," said restaurant chain's customer director Emma Woods.
