Wok Café – DDO Location

Woke Café Soups

 

After talking about it,  procrastinating, and talking about it some more … I finally went in to Wok Café.  I’m in the area quite often, I’ve heard nothing but good things about the place, but for some reason, I never went in.  I’m not a decor guru so I’ll stick to the food :)

The menu is big, but I was focused on the first page (after the cover).  All the combos range from ~$8 – $10

We were two, and I really wanted to get the General Tao chicken; I love the stuff, but everyone gets it … so…. I went with the Chicken with Spicy Peanut Butter Sauce hoping the other order was going to be the General Tao :)

Before I jump ahead, “All meals are served with rice, vegetables and your choice of spring roll or soup: wonton or hot and sour”.

I went with the hot and sour, the other was the wonton.  Both were very good.  The noodles were nice and packed in the wonton and the hot and sour was … well … hot and sour … which was good :)

The Spicy Peanut Butter Sauce was good too, not spicy enough for my liking.  I wish it was because I found the peanut butter a little overwhelming after awhile.  There wasn’t much competing with it.

The whole dish had a mix of vegetables like green peppers, onions, peas and stuff along with the chicken.  The side vegetables were steamed and lightly sautéed and were a good break from the peanut butter overdose.  Don’t get me wrong, overall, I liked it, I just wanted the heat.I tried to add Sriracha to the plate but it was going to get messy, so I added a  little.

The General Tao rocked.  It was meaty, well battered and fried and the sauce was really good. They aren’t cheap on the portions.  When I saw the mountain of chicken I was almost sure it was going to be a little piece of chicken surrounded by an air-bag of batter (which really isn’t a bad thing in my opinion) but it was really meaty.

The service was great.  To make a long story short, it seems I’m still new to this drinking water thing because i ended up with my entire glass all over the table and the floor.  They were kind enough to move us to a new table instead of just trying to dry everything up.

 

So basically, the positives were … price, value, portion size, service and flavour.  The negative is that the spicy isn’t so spicy*.

* Come to think of it, when I go to my local Thai Express, the ‘default’  spicy isn’t really spicy either.  I’m going to chalk it up to “leveling up” on the spice-o-meter
