Wok2Go Walks The Wok With Its Fresh, Fast, Fun Asian And Filipino Fare
Angie Mead King and Kim Garcia may not come across as your regular food entrepreneurs; but Wok2Go is their food concept that exists as a take-out counter in Uptown Mall, and has now established itself as a casual stand-alone eatery at the back of Double Dragon Plaza on EDSA by Roxas Boulevard. It’s very casual, with an open kitchen so that customers can watch the cooks in wok action.

Wok2Go’s food entrepreneurs Angie Mead King and Kim Garcia?
The menu is basically an assortment of Wok Mixes, and now, signature dishes that help the uninitiated get a feel for what the food concept has to offer. Kim is very proud of his signature sauces, as well as the signature dishes that include Pork Sinigang, Pork Binagoongan, Chicken Adobo, Pork Gochujang, Soy Honey Garlic Chicken, Chicken Teriyaki, Pepper Beef Broccoli, and Green Chicken Curry.

To expand the menu, they’ve now added dimsum side orders—Pork Siomai, Shrimp Siomai, and Lumpiang Shanghai. The Siomai can be ordered steamed or deep-fried. And Angie and Kim swear by their Lumpiang Shanghai as one the best you’ll ever taste.
Kim sums up the Wok2Go philosophy as fresh, fast, and fun. They guarantee fresh ingredients, and because they’re utilizing a wok over a high flame, the cooking is fast; and the fun comes by letting you customize your meal. I likened it to “Mongolian for Dummies”, and while Kim said it had never been described as such, he did admit that the description does fit.
In fact, he recalled how, with Mongolian eateries in the past, he could put together the right ingredients but could never get the sauce right. And this is where Wok2Go strives to be different, by putting their signature sauces on the line, as ready options for those seeking to customize. And the array of Sauces are Sinigang, Binagoongan, Adobo, Gochujang, Soy Honey Garlic, Teriyaki, Pepper, and Green Curry. For the base of the Wok Mix, one can choose between White Rice, Rice Noodles, Red Rice, or Mixed Veggies.

Wok2Go is also known for their green initiatives. Utensils are made of bamboo, and take-out materials are made of paper. The Wok partners donate regularly to two institutions, the Philippine School for the Deaf and the Philippine National School for the Blind. It’s all part of giving back via the business they’ve created.
Flavorful, tasty, generous portions, and attractively priced—this is “fast” slow food that’s very much worth a visit.
