FOTR excellence: Great food, service & cool name
By Mike Sanford, GLOB Editor
The Wok-n-Roll Chinese Restaurant in the shopping center on the corner of SW 34th St. and SW 20th St. has all the qualities that make a perfect Food On The Run choice:
A wide variety of Chinese entrees in a speedy fashion.
Good food: The vegetables are fresh, chopped, crisp and tasty; the rice is cooked to perfection; and your favorite protein is added in ample portions.
An unforgettable, very cool name.
With just four tables, it's easy to see Food On The Run is the main idea in this tiny restaurant.
Wok-n-Roll has the FOTR formula down to a science. I mean how much easier could it be? You walk in, check the menu out for your lunch choice, and tell the person behind the counter the number of the meal you want.
Recently, I stated that when I am in a Mexican restaurant, I always order a taco with my lunch. When I am having Chinese for lunch, you guessed it: You will find an egg roll on my plate. The tasty Wok-n-Roll Spring Roll went very nicely with my "L 20".
Do I need to tell you what an "L20" is? The L indicates LUNCH . . . :)
Wok-n-Roll l. I just like the sound of that name. Wok n Roll is up there with Chinese Takee Outee for 'Best GLOB Chinese Restaurant Name."
So, the next time you and your lunch mates are talking over where to eat, my suggestion to you is stand up and declare in a loud way: "WOK n ROLL!"
