Wagamama has been open for a week now and it’s already inspiring controversy among Boston foodies. While many are delighted that their favorite U.K. chain decided to open its first U.S. branch in the Hub, the consensus on Chowhound seems to be that service needs to work out some kinks and the food is not authentic. The pro-Wagamama camp contends that the service will get better and the food, while perhaps not incredibly authentic, is delicious. Although we haven’t yet had the opportunity to check out the Faneuil Hall location, we must confess to falling squarely onto the pro-Wagamama side of things. Even we, however, will admit that the food at the ‘Mams is not especially authentic. If you want true Japanese ramen (and not simply a well-priced meal and a slice of that wasabi white chocolate cake), the consensus seems to be that you should check out Ken’s Noodle House in Allston, where a bowl of true ramen can be obtained for under $10. Wherever you decide to get your ramen, enjoy it…ideally, with a side order of dumplings.
