Wok to Walk
The first Wok to Walk fast food restaurant was opened in Amsterdam 7 years ago. The project quickly caught up and 12 more restaurants soon followed in various locations from Colombia to the Baltics. Since December 2012 Sofia too, has its own Wok to Walk which quickly gained popularity. Wok to Walk is located in the iconic Vitosha Boulevard, very close to most tourist attractions, clubs, hotels, museums and across the street from the Palace of Justice, where the starting point of the Sofia Free Walking Tour is.
The place is easy to recognize thanks to the bright orange theme - orange sign, orange menu board, orange food boxes, orange stools and tables outside. Alternatively, just follow the aroma and you will find it easily.
The food is prepared in 3 easy steps - you choose your base, either rice or Asian noodles that come with fresh vegetables and egg, then you choose your favourite topping (could be meat, tofu, mushrooms, etc) and finally you choose your sauce from a list of Asian sauces like teriyaki, curry, black bean sauce and more.
All this thrown in a wok, the sacred moment comes. The wokist shakes the wok over the fire to cook your food, and the wok shakes, and the wok rocks, and the wok dances with the fire, and the wokist's body and limbs dance along with it. A few minutes of show time and the wok is emptied into a noodle box which crosses the counter and is ready to go. Finally, chopsticks can dig in. Yummy!
The inspiration for this type of food comes from the Asian cuisine, Thai in particular. Wok to Walk's concept is simple and can be summarized in 4 words - fresh, nutritious, quick and flexible. It is nutritious because it is cooked with very little oil on high temperature for a short time which preserves all vitamins and texture. It is flexible because of the countless combinations you can make between base, toppings and sauces. It is fresh because the chain's policy is to use fresh produce only and local where possible, the ingredients are on display in the counter windows and you can see it for yourselves.
