Homegrown, healthy noodle house Wokyo has opened in Dubai’s Al Safa.
Chances are you’ve heard the name Wokyo because the casual noodle bar already has a restaurant in JLT.
But now, Japanese food-lovers over the other side of town can see what they’ve been missing with the fancy brand-new – though tiny – location near Safa Park.
Located on the corner of Al Safa 1’s Al Wasl Square – just a stone’s throw away from the Canal – the family-friendly fuschia-coloured eatery is small, with a few of high tables as well as a couple of lower options too, all of which have views of the open plan kitchen.
Diners can pick their preferred ingredients from a compact menu, which lists a choice of sauces, variety of noodles and lastly the protein – chicken, beef, prawns, tofu or vegetables.
Everything is then thrown into a wok – the name of the restaurant gives this away – and combined to perfection ready to eat in or take away.
Wokyo also does home delivery so you can order your Asian fare in for lunch or dinner, unless you fancy the ramen, which you'd be better off slurping up in store.
Great news for Jumeirah residents.
Open daily 11am-11pm. Al Safa 1, Wasl Square Block 8, Dubai, www.wokyo.com (04 330 5188).
