Havering and Essex with an Alternative Twist!

Wasabi, Lakeside.

Did you know that Wasabi has ventured out of London into Essex?!

It’s true, Wasabi in now available in Lakeside, which made a perfect quick Saturday night dinner that was uber tasty at the same time!

Before I start on the food, I’m going to share a little bit about Wasabi as a brand in case you’ve not heard of it before…

The Wasabi story began in 2003 when we opened our first branch in Embankment, London.  Kim, a fresh food market trader in Camden, wanted to share his passion for fresh, authentic, handmade Japanese sushi and bento with ‘sandwich loving’ Londoners – he knew they’d love it.

With a bright, clean, modern Japanese style, Wasabi presented a new lunchtime alternative of sushi, sashimi, California rolls and authentic Japanese dishes and ten years on Kim is still innovating contemporary convenience food and still evoking the Wasabi way!


I opted for the Chicken curry yakisoba bento, and the chap, as ever, had the Chicken katsu curry bento.

I also tried one of the Tempura prawns and it was delicious!

I would highly recommend Wasabi as a lunch time stop if you’re in London, but if you’re shopping in Lakeside then make Wasabi your port of call for a delicious meal!

I even took inspiration from Wasabi and created my own meal…


Are you a Wasabi fan?
