The custom-made eat-as-you-go healthy fast food group, Wok to Walk, opened its first restaurant in Coventry on Friday, 15 November.
Wok to Walk prides itself in offering something a little bit different, serving simple, sizzling Asian food in a flash. The new restaurant, in the heart of Coventry at 2 Cross Cheaping, has created 11 jobs, seats 38 and will be open until late every night.
Wok to Walk aims to give customers total flexibility and involve them in the cooking experience through the use of open kitchens.
Explains Wok to Walk’s Coventry manager, Hassan Kamara: “We’re about firing up fresh, healthy ingredients, before your very eyes. Customers design their recipe picking the base, ingredients and sauce of their choice, and we stir it on the spot. All sorts of cravings are welcome: our 3-step menu has thousands of possible combinations!”
Hassan added: “But that’s not the only thing we’re known for. We’re also referred to as the hottest show in town! Our fearless wokkists love to play with fire, and that’s what they do while cooking customers’ delicious custom recipes. There are options for everyone, from vegans to meat lovers. Each meal is prepared in less than five minutes, so it is fast but, make no mistake, this is not fast food.”
Wok to Walk offers rice and noodle bases cooked with a choice of meat, fish and vegetables, with a selection of sauces stirred through. Options include udon noodles with prawn, bamboo shoots and teriyaki sauce, and brown rice with tofu, broccoli and Asian hot sauce. Meals can be eaten inside or taken out.
Wok to Walk’s first restaurant opened its doors in Amsterdam in 2004 and is now one of the leading noodle food groups with over 70 outlets around the world. It has restaurants in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Leeds, Liverpool, London and Reading.
