Wok n Fire - St. Charles - Maywood
The St. Charles location for Wok n Fire is one of four outposts that also include Burr Ridge, South Barrington and Wheaton. The pan-Asian concept includes popular fare from Malaysia, Korea, Thailand and Japan.
Menu highlights range from signature maki rolls (a crispy crunchy roll filled with shrimp tempura; Yum Yum roll topped with spicy tuna and jalapeño) to noodle bowls (pho, curry noodles, spicy ramen) to the spicy Hong Kong scallops.
Wok n Fire wants to set itself apart from other Asian-focused restaurants by hosting several weekly events that drive in loyal followers. On Mondays, guests get half off on bottles of wine and sake. "Ladies' night" is every Wednesday, from 4-9pm, and features discounted cocktails, wine and sangria; and also discounted pricing on signature maki rolls.
