We got to Leavenworth around 6pm, but went pass through to Dryden to check-in to our inn and drop our stuff. By the time we got back to the town, it was 7pm. Since it was Christmas, everything was closed for the day, or was closing early. We walked around looking for a restaurant while we took photos of the glittery Christmas lights throughout the town. We finally found Wok About Grill which had only opened at the beginning of that month. There was a lineup, but we had no other option, so we waited.
The place was pretty large with high ceilings. The server told us that we could order from the menu, but it was limited. Their main specialty was making your own stir fry. The server brought us two large plastic bowls and we filled it with any ingredient that we wanted from meat (frozen), veggies and noodles. Top it off with the sauces of your liking. The chef will then weigh your bowl and give you a sticker with the cost. You are charged $7.20/lb. I filled my bowl quite a bit and it came to just a little over $12. Oops, lol. Sheepie’s was only about $8.50. Watch chefs grill and cook up your meal!
A bonus is that every meal comes with either your choice of rice, tortillas or lettuce cups. I ordered rice while Sheepie go tortillas.
I thought Sheepie’s price was quite fair, with all that he had. I had quite a bit of noodles which were much heavier, hence the higher price. I shouldn’t have been so greedy, I was pretty full at 85%, but managed to finish the fry entirely, though only half the bowl of rice.
Our server was very friendly and pleasant. The hostess seemed a bit reluctant to be working there, especially on Christmas evening. The table area was clean, but the buffet area needs to be cleaned regularly. Although with so many customers pouring in their own ingredients into their bowl, I guess it’s inevitable to be a bit messy. The counter by the chefs were pretty bad. Sure, it’s end of day and super busy, but still.
Taste was ok. Filling but nothing spectacular. Maybe it’s my own fault for not using the right mix of sauces. Either way, I don’t know if it’s on my top list. Definitely not in Leavenworth, as I came to eat some German food – still, I was happy they were still the only ones left open in the entire town!
