Wagamama has become the latest established operator to launch a dedicated vegan menu.

The 29-item menu, which launched this month, also features a range of vegan and vegetarian beers.

Dishes range from kare burosu ramen with tofu, mushrooms and udon noodles in a curried vegetable broth, to vegan pad thai, and a lemongrass and coconut curry.

Wagamama also offers a vegetarian twist on its famous katsu curry with sweet potato, butternut squash and aubergine.

JD Wetherspoon, EAT, Pret and Zizzi have all extended their vegan options over the last 12 months.

“When talking to vegan customers, what they want the most is inclusion,” said Wagamama customer director Emma Woods.

“That is the same with our vegetarian fans. Our first ever dedicated vegan and vegetarian menu can be the starting point to support a vegan lifestyle choice. From its October launch, we will be listening to our fans to make sure we are constantly adapting and innovating to meet customer desires and a modern lifestyle.”
