Wok Express, one of Bandra’s favourite Asian food restaurants has now opened its doors to Lokhandwala, after Kemps Corner. Situated in one of the locality’s busiest corners, Wok Express opens with additions to its original menu. These include a variety of Sushi, Bubble Tea, Sticky Buns (stuffed) and Sticky Rice wraps.
On the new menu:
Sushi – Classic vegetarian California Rolls, Cucumber Creamcheese rolls, Orange Chicken rolls and Chicken Teriyaki rolls, all freshly prepped
Bubble tea – Pink Guava, Strawberry, French Vanilla Coffee, Peach, Lemon and Thai, all prepared using authentic Singaporean Tapioca pearls
Sticky Rice wrapped in a lotus leaf and steaming hot Asian Dumpling Buns (in vegetarian and chicken options)
For those of you who are new to vegetarian sushi, I’d recommend the cucumber creamcheese rolls because of the simplicity of ingredients. It’s also easier on your palate. Unfortunately the day I visited the restaurant they only had the guava, peach and lemon options leaving me to try the pink guava (I was looking forward to the French Vanilla). Taste wise, I’d give it a 4/5. I only wish it had been served extremely chilled. I’m not a fan of Bubble tea being served at room temperature.
The stuffed steam buns are full of flavour and a must have. I’ve always thought of classic steam buns as bland so I’ve shied away all this while, but the stuffing prepared by Wok Express is delicious. The Sticky Rice with vegetables requires to be dunked in soya sauce for the flavour to come out completely, but once it does, this is an appetising meal in itself.
If you’re looking for a place to grab a quick lunch or are too lazy to cook on a Sunday evening, I’d say Wok Express is a good bet.
