Wagaya

Entering the MidCity Arcade via Chinatown, and going upin the lift to Wagaya reveals a whole new world. Wagaya isspacious (with 300 seats), relaxed and perfect for having a great time with friends, and it lets you fully enjoy the
izakaya experience. Wagaya also has a private room thatseats 20 and you can smoke on the balcony.

It’s not just the number of seats available that shockseither. The menu contains over 180 items, with à la carte dishes, salads, fried foods, grilled dishes, sushi, sashimi, hotpots, rice and noodle dishes and desserts, ensuring
you’re never short of choice. There are over 100 different drinks, too. Best of all? They’re all affordable. Each booth-style table is equipped with a touchscreen for ordering in true Japanese style, and simply browsing the
menu, looking at all the pictures, is enjoyable in itself.

Our recommended dishes are the newly-added (and house-made) Smoked Ox Tongue ($4.80) and Smoked Salmon ($4.80), and the Japanese Beer Set, which pairs
either of those with a beer for just $8. The smoky aromas from either dish go perfectly with a cold one. The Whole Tomato & Baby Cucumber pickles ($5.40) are also a must, while you should definitely give the newly-added Sea Urchin, Crab Salad Box Sushi ($10.60) and Ox Tongue Gratin ($10.80) a go, too.
With its delicious, filling dishes, affordable prices and great atmosphere, Wagaya is perfect for hanging out with friends, and we guarantee you’ll walk away satisfied.

 

編集部お勧めの日本食レストランをご紹介します。
今月はゆったり空間が広がる「Wagaya」。
 

チャイナタウンからアーケードに入り、エレベーターで上がると、そこは別世界。広くてゆったり、グループでワイワイしながら居酒屋を満喫するならこのお店。なんと席数300。20人はいれるプライベートルーム、喫煙できるバルコニーもあります。

席数だけでなくメニュー数も驚く多さ。アラカルト、サラダ、揚げ物、串焼き、寿司、刺身、鍋、ご飯、麺類など、酒の肴から〆のデザートまで180以上。飲み物も優に100を超えます。しかもどれも納得価格。ブーススタイルの各テーブルには日本式のタッチパネルが付いていて、「どれにしようか」とあれこれ写真を見ながらメニューを選ぶおもしろさも味わえます。

今回お勧めするのは、新メニューの自家製Smoked OX Tongue($4.80)、Smoked Salmon($4.80)と日本のビールのセット(セット価格$8)。燻製特有の香りが鼻孔をくすぐり、ビールとマッチ。丸ごと漬物、夏が旬のWhole Tomato & Baby Cucumber($5.40)も外せません。ほかにもSea Urchin, Crab Salad Box Sushi($10.60)、OX Tangue Glatin($10.80)などが更にメニューに加わりました。

仲間と行って語り合い、おいしい物でおなかいっぱい、懐にも優しくて、大満足間違いなしのお店です。
