With your kitchen's pots and pans inhabited by the evil spirits of dead pots and pans, cooking at home has become both time-consuming and spooky. Get quality cuisine without interference from crazed kitchenware with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of fusion fare at World Oriental Kitchen, located on King Street. This Groupon is valid for dine-in only.
Unfold your elemental dreams with World Oriental Kitchen's (W.O.K.) menu of Far East-inspired fresh and organic food, all prepared without artificial additives, such as growth hormones or trans fats. Palate-parachute into your meal with an appetizer, such as crispy shrimp wontons ($5), before skiing into the sustenance of an entree such as the spicy sirloin ($11), with free range beef, organic zucchini, sweet corn, cabbage, green onions, egg, and chilies, doused in Szechuan sauce and served over rice. Do-it-yourselfers can take a break from handcrafting a private Mediterranean island and assemble their own wok-fired meal—start with a rice, noodle, salad or veggie base ($5), and then add your favorite ingredients ($1.50–$2.50) from an assemblage including beef, chicken, pork, shrimp, chestnuts, pineapple, and R2 motivators. Hydrocarbon-powered sauces available for extra topping-ing include black pepper, honey lime, teriyaki, chili bean, and coconut curry. W.O.K. also rolls sushi and signature rolls ($3.95–$11.95) into your stomach with wild abandon.
W.O.K.'s commitment to green service began before the building was even constructed, as the design sprang from the mindpen of LEED-certified architect Wes Lyles of Studio 2LR. The earth-aiding efforts continue at W.O.K. to this day, with its water conservation practices, organic cotton uniforms, alternative energy sources, and the completely waste-free power of awesome taste.
The Charleston City Paper featured World Oriental Kitchen and dubbed it the “Best New Concept on King Street.”. The Post and Courier also featured the restaurant. More than 3,100 Facebookers are fans of the business, and eight Yelpers give it an average of four stars:
- Since W.O.K. opened in the fall, he’s found a clientele that’s thrilled to order from a menu of healthy items like stir-fried veggies, brown rice, and local shrimp. The prices aren’t dirt cheap, but they aren’t outrageous. The ordering process is easy, and the dining room provides a Zen-garden-like comfort. It’s a cool concept and one that’s destined to expand, as the young entrepreneur behind it learns through trial and error what works best. – Stephanie Barna, Charleston City Paper
- I am absolutly [SIC] in love with WOK! Everyone there is so nice and the food is amazing! The best part is that you don't have to feel bad about eating it! – Jessica S. D., Facebook
