Thanks to reader Ryszard for letting me know about this. It's actually been a while since I've walked through the Prudential Center - trying to cut down on the spending. Apparently, Wagamama is going to open up a location in the Prudential Center.

Wagamama is a restaurant chain serving pan-Asian food in the style of a modern noodle bar. The first Wagamama opened in 1992 off Gower Street in Bloomsbury, London, which still exists today. The chain now includes branches in London, Bristol, Leicester and across England, as well as in Scotland, Wales, Ireland, The Netherlands, Istanbul, Australia, Dubai, Belgium, New Zealand, Switzerland, Egypt and Copenhagen, and the United States (in Boston and Cambridge MA). The chain's website defines wagamama as "wilful / naughty child"; however, a more accurate translation of the Japanese adjective is selfish. Their trademarked slogan is: positive eating + positive living. The chain was created by Alan Yau, who also subsequently created the Chinese restaurants Hakkasan and Yauatcha in London.

I usually eat at Qdoba when I goto to the Prudential Center, or occasionally Sakkio for their chicken teriyaki. But, once Wagamama opens, it might be worth a shot. I haven't been to either of the other Boston-area locations yet (Faneuil Hall & Harvard Sq). For those of you that have been there, how do you like it?

    I *LOVE* Wagamama and have been to the Faneuil Hall one several times. I was turned on to them in London where they are everywhere. I find it to be simple and delicious food, just different enough to be interesting. Very yummy indeed!

    I work on state street, and often pop over to wagamama in faneuil for lunch. they have a great value menu where you can get an app, main dish, and drink for around $13--worth a try if you are into asian fusion with a twist.

    Boston needs a real ramen restaurant- anyone who has been to Japan knows you can't get decent ramen here.
