If you’ve been anywhere near Al Durrah Tower on Sheikh Zayed Road recently, you can’t help but have noticed a huge, colourful mural. The art comes from new Asian restaurant Wok Boyz, welcoming you to try the street food dishes.
Designed by graffiti artist Berkem Seçgin, the wall art mixes funky Asian influences with imagery of key locations around the country
Iconic landmarks include Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, Burj Khalifa, the Aldar Building in Abu Dhabi, a completed version of the Dubai Eye.
Not near that location? Wok Boyz has launched a second branch in Dubai Internet City, too.
The new venue opened its doors in June.
A brainchild of three Dubai foodies, Wok Boyz aims to cater to every Asian food lover, with a range of spicy and mild sauces with quirky names such as ‘Indonesian Heat’, ‘Peppery Yin Yang’ and ‘Gangnam Style’, which may have you galloping around the place.
“We love the intoxicating, bold, intense flavours of Asian Street Food and the theatre of wok cooking,” says the team. “Enamoured with exotic Asian flavours we want to bring you the freshest, tastiest ingredients cooked to perfection in a flaming wok.”
The idea is simple. Pick your base – rice, quinoa, noodles et al – top it with a protein and some veg, then choose your sauce and any “finishing touches” (think peanuts or fried garlic).
“Wok Boyz aims to become instrumental to Dubai’s growth in its status as one of the street food capitals in the world and we are proud to be representing it as its very own food success story,” says CEO of Wok Boyz Gaurav Sabharwal.
“For any new brand it is very humbling to receive such a positive response and we look forward to reaching out to many other prominent locations across the country soon,”
After other Asian bites? Miss Tess has launched its evening Brunchzilla, dishing out unlimited sushi, noodles and desserts.
If you need noodles, you know where to go.
