When my friend Lisa tweeted the other day that Wagamama might be coming to Penn Quarter, I got really excited. Wagamama is a noodle house that originated in London. They generally serve ramen, but this isn’t the ramen you buy in bricks from the grocery store, or in freeze-dried cups from Cup O’Noodles. No, this is the real thing. Served with piles of edamame or some tasty duck gyoza, it’s the real deal.
Metrocurean says they’ll be in the heart of Penn Quarter at the old Olsson’s location. No dates are official yet, but I have a feeling I’ll have a place to go for ramen come the winter-time, when I’ll want it most. Eating at Wagamama in London was one of the highlights of my trip there (okay, so it wasn’t as good as Zaika, but still!) and we’re looking forward to having one right here in DC.
