New Seafood Ramen Lifestyle

Ramen’s been a hot trend in London for a fair old while now - not only because it’s delicious but because it’s also a fully balanced meal for all those who are increasingly interested in eating well. 

Before the ramen fad hit London however, wagamama were busying away in their kitchens serving up dish after dish and perfecting it for their diners as they went.

Did you also know that wagamama also has it’s own noodle recipe book? It’s called way of the noodle and was published back in 1994. Rather before it’s time, it hailed ramen as "a nutritionally complete meal in a bowl; the noodles, containing valuable carbohydrate and dietary fibre, swim in a healthful broth and are topped with vitamin-rich vegetables, plus a little protein in the form of meat, seafood or tofu and minimum fat”. 

But if you’re not that confident in the kitchen, not to worry. Nowadays, there are wagamama restaurants all over London and they’re a great place to drop in with friends and have a bowl of ramen, made fresh to order- especially as the weather refuses to warm up! This steaming bowl of fragrant hot broth, filled with fresh noodles, toppings and garnishes will always warm the soul. 

SEAFOOD Ramen COMP_v2

And a final note - if you’re thinking that you visited wagamama not that long ago, there is always reason to return. If you’re a ramen lover,the ramen menu development is continuous and the two latest additions to the menu are a couple we’re especially excited about: seafood ramen & short rib ramen. These newer additions join other ramen favourites on the menu such as the duck ramen and the chilli chicken ramen

So - if you readers want to get a little ramen tasting in for nothing get on your social and start Tweeting us! Let us know why you love wagamama ramen so much with the hashtag #wagamamaRAMEN and we’ll be picking someone at random to win a ramen feast at wagamama!

Hvana teaWhat do you love most about being at home? What simple pleasures does it bring? We know that London’s great with all it’s go go go but what do you really look forward to once you put that key in the door? We don’t know about you but we’re oh so particular with our tea in the morning. At home our mugs are just right, always with a white inside, never too thick, never too large or, God forbid - too small.

That first tea in the morning when you’re up early enough not to rush can cure a groggy head from the night before, set you up for the day or get you looking forward to the one you’ll make once you get home. Better than the stained mug at work, better than the one you may get at that meeting in the coffee shop (coffee shops find it hard to make tea) and made just right for you, by you.

There are very few other simple pleasures in life than tea done right, at home. Except maybe cocktails at home….

WJ London have teamed up with Havana Club to bring you a home away from home Mojito experience. Gather a few friends, have a quick master class in Mojito making and enjoy a relaxed evening of Mojito creating and drinking in the homely surroundings of the kitchen at the Hoxton Holborn on the 1st of September.

How to get your name on the list for the evening? It’s easy - just tell us what simple thing you love that is only right at home with the hashtag #simplyhearthome. 5 Winners will be chosen at random on the 28th September with each winner able to bring 3 friends with them to the evening and if you’d like to brush up your mojito skills in the meantime, you can find a handy ‘how to’ video at the Havana Mojito hub.

It’s that simple.

Havana cllub competition who's Jack We love London, so much to do and see, so easy to meet people, go to bars, grab a burger… it’s all go go go. But sometimes the best things are the simple ones, the ones you look forward to making and doing your way, in your own home.

The fry up on a Sunday morning, the bottle of wine (and your pjs) waiting for you after a long day at work and even - though some may disagree - that perfectly made cocktail on a Friday night when friends are ringing on the doorbell.

You may argue that cocktails are hard and the answer is yes, some are, but there is one cocktail that doesn’t take a fully stocked drinks cabinet, far flung ingredients in the fridge and an expert wrist action - the Mojito.

Ready to be made with the simplest of ingredients and just to your taste whether you prefer to go heavy on the sugar, mint or Havana Club and you can almost do it with your eyes shut. Which is obviously all the better if you’re at home with a BBQ or entertaining and want to be able to hold a conversation rather than a concentration marathon.

Which brings us to the important part - WJ London have teamed up with Havana Club to bring you a home away from home Mojito experience. Gather a few friends, have a quick master class in Mojito making and enjoy a relaxed evening of Mojito creating and drinking in the homely surroundings of the kitchen at the Hoxton Holborn on the 1st of September.
