14:44 06/01/2020

UK restaurant chain Wagamama is to open its second Belgian outlet in the pedestrian zone of Brussels in mid-February.

The popular restaurant, specialising in Japanese-inspired noodle dishes and food, is present in Antwerp since 2005.

Its Brussels branch will occupy the recently-inaugurated Crystal City shopping centre in Boulevard Anspach. The commercial project already contains a Burger King and is neighbour to numerous other fast-food chains, such as Exki, McDonald’s and Quick. Upmarket Italian chain Eataly is due to open on the site of Delhaize Anspach in 2023.

Founded in the UK in 1992, Wagamama has 200 franchised restaurants in the world and is credited with popularising Japanese-style dining and interiors. Its speciality dishes include ramen, donburi, curries, tom yum soup, gyoza and vegan options. Mains are priced between €10-15.

Wagamama is currently recruiting serving and kitchen staff for the new outlet in collaboration with Brussels’ regional employment office Actiris.
