Wok n’ Roll: Tom Yum Fried Rice

After my Christmas shopping at MOE, drove around Barsha with friends. We saw this orange restaurant Wok n’ Roll which suits what we were craving for, delicious Chinese/ Thai cuisine but pocket friendly and is not in a noisy food court. Wok n’ Roll perfectly fits what we wanted.


Wok n’ Roll has a lot of veggie and meat options on their menu at the restaurant compared to their menu on Wok N Roll Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato. While waiting for our food, they gave us crispy crackers that is similar to chicharap. It goes well with the Szechuan Sauce. We like it so much we asked for second serving. Our starter Crispy Szechuan Veg arrived. It tastes like okoy with a garlicky, spicy sauce and a little dash of sweetness in it. The crispiness dies down if you don’t eat it fast, its best to eat it once its served.

The Tom Yum Fried Rice is the dish I was not sure of when I saw it on the menu, I asked our server if that is the flavor for the rice. I was curious how it would taste as I know Tom Yum as a soup. They serve us the Tom Yum Fried Rice when we were halfway through with our Crispy Szechuan. I had a small first bite, and amazingly Tom Yum goes well with fried rice. Impressive combination.

Black pepper sauce is my friend’s favorite. When he goes to a Chinese restaurant he immediately asks if they have something with black pepper sauce. Without asking him I ordered the Black and Pepper Veg. I did not like this as much as he did, I don’t like stir fry veggies with lots of sauce in it. The vegetables are over cooked, crunchiness of the veggies… gone. The sauce tastes nice but the presentation isn’t. I was thinking maybe it looks like this because we ordered veg option and usually a veggie dish will become watery because the water from the veg adds up to the sauce when cooked.

Black Pepper Veg – AED 26.00

I am rating Wok n’ Roll 3.5/5. A good option for Pan Asian food when you don’t want the noisiness and busyness of MOE food court.
