Business Journal: Wagamama On The Way

Wagamama, the popular UK-based noodle bar, is on the way to DC, according to the Washington Business Journal.

Business Journal writer Tierney Plumb wrote in a Tuesday story: "U.K.-based noodle house Wagamama will enter the region with its 5,800-square-foot location on Seventh St. NW late this year or early next."

The international chain opened its first US shop in Boston in April 2007. Rumors of a DC outpost have been swirling for some time. The Business Journal also reports that Wagamama wants to open more locations around the metro area.

As a pence-pinching student in London one summer, I fell hard for the affordable noodle joint. And I can't wait to see how it's received in DC.

Eaten at a Wagamama? What did you think?
