Wok2Go in Double Dragon Plaza: A Healthy Fast Food for the Working Crowd
It’s hard to maintain a healthy habit nowadays, let alone for working professionals who have such fast-paced lifestyles. Luckily, there’s a newly opened restaurant to get a fresh fix of healthy on-the-go wok bowls to step up your lunch game.
Wok2Go in Double Dragon Plaza is a new casual food spot that offers customizable Mongolian stir-fry wok mixes, promising a fresh, fun, and fast dining experience.
Founded in 2017, Wok2Go is the brainchild of close friends Kim Garcia and Angie Mead King, who both have an utter love for Mongolian cuisine since their younger years.
“When we were younger, after a night out, we would always go to Sparky’s in Paranaque. Sparky’s was literally a single take-out establishment and we would always go there and get rice in a box. It’s our favorite and this was when we were in high school, so that concept stayed with us,” Angie narrated.

However, they both noticed the same old problems with wok mixes that usually concern the consistency of flavors. This pushed Kim and Angie to put up a food business and introduce customizable wok mixes to fit every Filipino’s appetite for food in a box.
“[The problem with Mongolian] is sometimes basa (wet), sometimes tuyo (dry). To make sure, we decided to create our own concept where we could fix all the problems of Mongolian woks and create our own signature flavor,” Angie continued.
Unlike the first outlet in Uptown Mall that focuses more on take-outs, their newest branch is a full restaurant set up that can accommodate up to 50 diners. Opened just last June, it’s ideal for a casual lunch out with friends or office mates as it has that relaxing vibe with a bit of industrial accent.

Fresh, Fun, Fast
What makes this food concept different from the other restaurants is that they prepare and cook your orders in less than five minutes (yes, you read it right).
Wok mixes are cooked fast over high flame because the faster you cook, the fewer nutrients you kill in the food. If you are going to count the time from the moment you order up to the time you are served, it can be recorded to as short as 2 minutes and 44 seconds only!

That’s not all, they let you have fun in choosing your preferred wok mixes—all without judgment. First, choose the size of wok: the small bowl is priced at Php 120, while the large bowl costs Php 190.
Next, tell them your preferred sauce so you can imagine the taste of your wok. They have 8 signature sauces authentically made by eight different people from their team: Sinigang, Binagoongan, Adobo, Gochujang, Soy Honey Garlic, Teriyaki, Pepper, and Green Curry.
These sauces took two years to complete because they refuse to settle on average-tasting sauces.
The third step is choosing your wok’s base. You can choose from white rice, red rice, rice noodles, or mixed vegetable that includes bean sprouts, carrots, onions, cabbage, and snow cabbage.

The last step is for your add-ons. They have chicken, beef, pork, tuna, fried tofu, sesame seeds, egg, kimchi, and more.
