The deal will see Wagamama’s chilli chicken ramen; pork tonkatsu with sticky rice; yasai yaki udon; and teriyaki chicken donburi bowl added to Gousto’s choice of recipe boxes.
Gousto says the partnership is a first of its kind tie-up for both brands, and forms the next step on Gousto’s journey to become ‘the UK’s most-loved way to eat dinner’.
“Wagamama is one of the most popular restaurants on the British high street, with innovative dishes and vibrant flavours, so we’re excited to partner with them to give families the chance to cook the dishes they love in their own homes,” says Rachel Chatterton, food development director at Gousto.
“These recipes showcase some of the most delicious, soul nourishing dishes that Wagamama offers,” adds Steve Mangleshot, executive chef at Wagamama.
“We’re passionate about spreading our ethos of positivity from bowl to soul and we’re delighted that with Gousto we can now extend this passion to households, where they can recreate these classic dishes from the comfort of their own home.”
Wagamama, which is owned by The Restaurant Group (TRG), opened its first delivery kitchen in London’s Hackney in July, and says it plans to open at least two further delivery sites by 2020.
Earlier this month it also confirmed it is on track to launch its food-to-go spin-off brand Mamago in the City by 2020.
