Someone Ordered 13 Katsu Sauces And Nothing Else From Wagamama - And They Want To Know Who
Someone ordered 13 katsu sauces from Wagamama and nothing else and we need answers.
The Japanese high street eatery posted about the incident on Twitter on Wednesday evening, sharing a photo of a Deliveroo receipt baring the absurd order.
Specifying no cutlery, the receipt shows the mystery recipient ordered 13 loads of the famous sauce and absolutely nothing else.
"Identify yourself immediately," wrote Wagamama, and we support this demand.

The logical answer for this would be that it was a mistake - a drunken misorder (at five in the afternoon, albeit) or a phone spasm.
But we're going to let our little hearts believe this order was fully intended - that the recipient harbours a profound (almost fetishised) love for kastu sauce, and eats the stuff straight from a bowl with a spoon like soup.
Speculation was rife in the comments as to the profile of the orderer.
"Almost definitely a male. Caucasian. And possibly middle class," suggested one person, while others tagged their katsu-loving friends with cries of "was this you?"

The recipient is yet come forward to explain themselves, but if they do we'll let you know.
Wagamama has reopened its restaurants for eat-in and takeaway, implementing Japanese-style sliding screens to allow customers to still sit on its signature long benches.
Design Director for the brand Mark Standing, said: "Sliding screens (shoji) are at the very heart of the Japanese architectural aesthetic.
"They have been used for hundreds of years to divide spaces in buildings and rooms.
"I took my inspiration for the design of screen dividers for our long sharing tables and benches from this tradition".
Chief executive Emma Woods said: "The main question we have been working on as a team is how can our guests feel safe but still have a communal wagamama experience, sitting on our benches.
"The team have applied our philosophy of kaizen - good change - to this challenge and I am delighted we have found a design solution which provides social distancing for our guests in a way which is true to the design ethos of the brand."
