The joy of Wok Inn is its simplicity. You go to the counter, and pick the base of your fried meal; be it egg noodle, rice noodle, jasmine rice, bihun, kwetaiw, or udon (slightly more expensive). Then, you get to choose the side dish, or what I think should be called “topping” instead; chicken breast, beef steak, shrimp, meat ball, fish ball, shrimp ball, broccoli, shiitake mushroom or egg. Whatever you pick, the dish will come with garlic, cabbage, bean sprouts, bok choy, onion, scallion, big red chilli, egg, and the sauce of your choice: teriyaki, curry, tom yum, oyster, spicy, or garlic and black pepper.
My dinner, as pictured above, was kwetiaw with oyster sauce topped with fish ball and shiitake mushroom. It was well-fried with minimum oil left. The overall texture was smooth. The portion was generous. The temperature was perfect. For IDR 53.250 (including tax, excluding drinks) it was not the cheapest quick meal deal, but the taste justified the price. Wok Inn is not the place for a hangout. The Malay ballad background music and the waiters’ strong body odor will make you want to leave as soon as you finish the dish.
