Wok to Walk opened about two months ago in Bogotá’s Zona Rosa and has been receiving pretty good reviews so far. My first visit was a successful one. So much so that it made me want to go back a zillion times more. I think this desire has something to do with wanting to try out the infinite number of combinations until I find “the one”, or as Charlie Sheen calls it, the “cauldron of awesomeness“.
See, the system at this Dutch-based franchise is to choose a base of noodles, rice or veggies; protein/veggies; and a sauce. The wok chef then throws your selection into a wok and quickly stir fries the whole thing. It’s pretty hard to go wrong and if you do, maybe you just chose the wrong combination of flavors and textures.
Your selection of noodles or rice are first stir fried with an egg, some bean spouts and cabbage. Then comes your chicken, pork, tofu or whatever you’ve chosen plus any additional veggies. Finally comes the sauce, a few tosses in the wok and you’re set.
The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is pretty convenient for a post-movie or pre-party meal, and for all practical purposes, it’s fast food – faster than a Colombian McDonald’s for sure – but healthier and affordable.
You know, I’ve been daydreaming about my next meal at Wok to Walk and I think it might go something like this: egg noodles, tofu, broccoli, shitake mushrooms, cilantro, bok choy and a coconut curry sauce…sounds good to me.
