Ohayou gozaimasu! I'm feeling Japanese!
Yesterday, Watami opened its 3rd kitchen at the 6th level, East Wing of Shangri-la Plaza! Serving fresh, tasty and authentic Japanese food, Watami restaurants are like the little Japanese kitchens in the metro, giving the most sought after Japanese experience with their mouth-watering dishes!
Watami is an internationally known Japanese Causal Restaurant with over 700 stores in Asia which is #1 in Japan.
Watami, Shangri-la Plaza branch not just serve authentic Japanese cuisine, they also cater a good modern Japanese-inspired interior, perfect for hanging out!
There is the island couch that could sit a couple of grouped diners without compromising comfort.
Leather couches, nipa-inspired cushion chairs, wooden facades and textured white spot backdrop are the highlights of its interior giving a homey feel and makes you wanna loosen up and be Japanese.
