W.O.K., the greenest restaurant on King Street, has made some significant changes recently.
First, they hired a new executive chef to refurbish and expand the menu. Chef Kichuel Sunoda comes to Charleston via gigs in Chicago, L.A., and New York, where he's worked for chefs like Tanaka Fukuda and Hiroshi Akira.
He's added sushi to the lineup along with dishes like spicy sirloin stir-fry and lemongrass chicken. Of course, the original build-your-own noodle or rice dish concept remains, letting patrons choose their own base, protein, and sauce.
Second, they've added sit-down table service at night to allow diners a more leisurely experience. (Counter service remains at lunch.)
Third, they now have a full bar featuring top-shelf organic liquors, claiming the right to call themselves Charleston's only full organic bar.
And finally, they've unveiled a new outdoor patio, which should conjure up a soothing Zen vibe with its natural bamboo garden and slate floor. W.O.K. is located at 349 King St.
