Our friend, Uncle K, came to visit from the States, and we decided to try Wagamama again on the night of the run off election in Cyprus. We had dinner at 5 or 6 pm, so we knew that we wouldn’t have to wait long for seating.
When we walked in, we saw a familiar face from another afternoon event we attended that day. (It just tells you how small Cyprus is.)
We saw a billboard ad that said Wagamama now offered sushi in Cyprus. Prof ordered a cornucopia of California rolls. Piano Man devoured at least six pieces! So we ordered more, and the kids tried their version of miso soup. However, this version of miso soup contained black bean sauce, one piece of tofu, three slivers of mee-yuk (seaweed). Piano Man wanted actual miso soup using miso, but Linus tried it and devoured it. Personally, we had to side with Piano Man. It was a little too weird for our taste.)
I find it hilarious how Wagamama and Chopsticks, another Asian semi-fast food restaurant, offer basmati rice as an alternative to white sticky rice. You gotta give it up for these restaurants that know how to market to their customers.
If you haven’t been to Wagamama in Cyprus, give it a try. It’s Piano Man’s favorite place to eat Cali rolls.
