Breakfast - Wagamama (Gatwick)


Breakfast was at Wagamama which is airside at Gatwick South Terminal. We'd looked around a bit and this seemed the best choice once I'd been talked into cancelling the Premier Inn buffet (which apparently only I enjoy!) Wagamama serves an interesting breakfast menu AND the full lunch menu so there's a lot of choice. Here's the additional breakfast items:


We ordered tea and an expresso (DW), a cappuccino (me) and Apple juice for DD. DW then went for poached eggs, smashed avocado and tomato on toast which was a bit of an odd combo. She asked for the avocado on the side and then basically ate it like poached eggs on toast which would have been cheaper! She found this OK.


I went for kedgeree, also from the breakfast menu. Love this dish and rarely see it so usually order when its available.


This was disappointing. The egg was nice on the top, the right herbs, not enough smoked haddock in there but the real issue was way too much curry powder throughout the gloopy rice (which was overcooked). This dish is supposed to have a mild curry flavour but this was actually hot. Not bad enough to send it back but a let down and not how it's supposed to be served.

DD went for something she's had before from the regular menu and this proved the breakfast winner. Grilled Duck Donburi (tender shredded duck in a spicy teriyaki sauce. served with carrots, snow peas, sweet potato and red onion on a bed of sticky white rice. finished with a crispy fried egg, shredded cucumber, scallions and a side of kimchi).
A very grown up order compared to where we were 3 years ago!

I hadn't heard of it before but it was gorgeous. I got to finish the duck as there was loads mixed in amongst the rice. It was apparently also a touch spicier than she's had before so I think we can diagnose a heavy handed morning chef at the Gatwick Wagamama



The bill came to 41. More than the Premier Inn breakfast or in fact our room for last night I am not looking forward to adding up the food spends on this holiday!

Next stop the plane journey That and last night's dinner will follow tomorrow as need to get photos from DD's phone and she's

Laughing at the jelly snakes on a plane and Trevor! Sounds like a good start! I love Wagamama but have to admit I find the breakfast offerings a little odd. Although I don't see whats wrong with the Premier Inn brekkie, yum!

Hi Trevor! Hopefully her has a friend in Manchester we can get to know.

Bit of a disappointing breakfast, but hopefully the rest of the food is on the way up

Yes the Wagamama breakfast offerings are definitely exotic Thanks for reading, looking at your countdown I wish this was my first trip to Disney it's the best to experience it all for the first time!

I might not tell her that she's a genius I'll never hear the end of it At one point housekeeping saw DW and the trolley coming down the corridor and you could just see her deciding if it was part of her remit to tell us off, nope Hope you enjoy the rest of the trip!

I'm sure Trevor has a Northern cousin It was surprisingly easy to get a trolley in and out of the hotel, the main challenge was the decision to keep it there overnight as opposed to putting it back and bringing a new one up in the morning! The rooms aren't big enough.

Brilliant update as usual. I bet its a laugh a minute living at your house! 😂

Not sure what I think about those 2 poached eggs quietly sitting on that plate all alone. I cant say what they look like, other than to say, they could do with a tan! 😆😉
