Wasabi's Tanabata Festival - new salad and pottos
The Japanese folk lore behind the Tanabata festival begins with two Gods, Orihime and Hikiboshi who are allowed to cross the Milky Way and finally meet to play during Tanabata. In Japan, they celebrate this meeting by writing wishes on colourful pieces of paper and hanging them from bamboo branches.
At Wasabi, they're celebrating Tanabata with the introduction of our new Niji Salad, which means rainbow salad.
