Wagammas (in Birmingham Uk)

Recommended Posts

went out on sunday with a friend and the new blokey and we finally settled on Wagammas for food.

Had a quick scan of the menu, and think OK its a Japanese (all be it westernised) Noodle style bar.. they have rice noodles and such so SHOULD be oK...right?... Oh so very very wrong!

when i explained my problem (lastose intollerant celiac) i got given a sheet that lists the foods i 'can have with moderations' .. great i think... so i look.. i am not even entirly sure how they have managed to get lactose in some of the dishes the list said i couldnt have but im not going to risk it, i figure they know what their ingrediants are!...

so i sat and cross referenced the lactose and gluten that left me with two things that i could eat.... BUT once you put the MSG in... NOTHING!

they have got MSG in their miso! what cheap rubbish are they buying!

I explained my problem to the waitess who was clearly out of depth once the trusted 'list' had failed her... and the manageress came over and asked what the problem was, i explained and she basically said if theres nothign you can eat you cant eat here...

now given they make it all from scratch and its not exactly rocket scienec and all i wanted was stir fried veggies and a bit o meat (but not their chicken which has milk in it! (again withthe cheap meat!) and some rice noodles i wouldnt have thought it would be THAT hard to accomodate (ive had some loverley peeps at various places that happily sort something) but no.. apparently she couldnt do that.. she could modify stuff on the menu but not deviate so much.. and that that was the menuand if there was nothign i could eat then i couldnt eat there...

so we left.

Ended up at a loverly place called Bar Soya (next to the rag market) where they make their own rice noodles (best ever btw! noym) and who made me exactly what i wanted with the most amazing noymest crunchy veggies and things that havnt made me ill and i will be most definatly telling everyone in the world to go there!

That sucks, I hate going into a restaurant and not being able to eat anything or only being able to eat the the most basic thing, Try Metro Bar and Grill the food is amazing and they have a massive range you could eat. Its down colemore row near the city center.
