Cash-strapped students, this one’s for you! If you need a break from the books (or boozing!) this month hit up wagamama which is giving away thousands of FREE katsus!
It’s to coincide with National Katsu Curry Day on September 27th. To celebrate the pan-Asian food specialists will be dishing up 50 totally FREE meals at every one of their restaurants that day. So wherever you are, you’ll be near by; there’s 39 wagamama outlets in London alone!
What do you need to do? Easy as – just show up early doors, flash a valid NUS card when you order and the tasty goods are all yours.
Choices will include a high-protein chicken katsu coated in crispy breadcrumbs and smothered in an aromatic curry sauce. Or there’s a veggie option – the yasai katsu with piping hot sweet potato, aubergine and butternut squash comes sprinkled with panko breadcumbs and creamy topping. Both are served up with sticky rice on the side plus a salad too to make sure you’re getting one of your five a day!
Feel the heat with a limited edition hot katsu
If you fancy spicing things up a level, you can even try the limited edition hot katsu. The devilish dish is doused in hot sauce and fiery chillis. As per the regular version, curious curry fans can choose from either chicken or yasai options.
The red hot main was initially offered at Noodle Lab on Dean Street in Soho where new and creative wagamama dishes are trialled before being rolled out nationwide. You’ll have to be quick; the hot katsu is only available for a week leading up to the student giveaway.
Steve Mangleshot, Executive Chef at wagamama says, “The katsu curry has remained untouched since 1992 so it’s a big moment for us to be trialling an extra spicy version.
“You can still get our classic katsu but for those chilli lovers out there this gives them something different with an interesting new flavour profile.”
