“Within the rounds of a wok, are memories etched for eternity”- Noorain
I, believe in those memories which are usually concocted up in the kitchen. They retain for the longest of time. Casually passing by, I noticed a bright neon board which said “Wok”, & out gushed those memories.
About Wok : It’s a small place, which relies on deliveries and takeaways, rather than dine-ins. They specialise in Indo-Chinese street food, but with so much more authenticity. You might get a little baffled seeing the place and might even think that it wouldn’t be on par with your expectations, but be prepared to be pleasantly surprised.
The Grub Story : With a raging appetite, here’s what we ordered.
- Mushroom Manchurian & Broccoli Manchurian (Rs. 125/-): I, personally loved the spice level in these. Take it from a person who loves her food bland. The mushrooms and broccoli really made it! With the veggies batter fried and enveloped generously in the sauce, these starters were the best I’ve had at a qsr 👍🏻👍🏻
The noodles are made to order and customised as per your taste. You get to decide what and how much you want to pay for your bowl of happiness. Please do bear in mind that the portions are huge, when you order for Regular size.
- Udon in Saigon sauce : I’m a huge Japanese Udon fan. To find it over here, was nothing but elation of my joy. I, customised my bowl with mushrooms, babycorn, bok choi and broccoli. The Saigon sauce, was your run of the mill “Black pepper sauce”. The peppery Garlic profile of the sauce, actually worked well with the Udon. The combination proved to be delightfully yum.
- Udon in Beijing sauce: This one, was added with chicken, prawns and topped with black & white sesame. The Beijing sauce, on its own didn’t really click too well, but it was fair enough. The generosity of sesame toppings, actually surprised me. It’s a huge big tablespoon, if I’m not wrong. That’s all the calcium that you need for the meal. 😁
Verdict : A great place, to try the unconventional street food Indo-Chinese. Where, Udon & Buckwheat usually graces the shelves of star kitchens, you find them easily over here, for 1/4th the price. Rates high on VFM & taste as well.
A well deserved 4 star for getting Udon & Buckwheat out and out.
