Carlton Wok, Carlton, Melbourne
There’s definitely a little bit of magic happening at the Carlton Wok. After a typically long and tiring Friday afternoon at work I was ready for some non-cooking and reached over to the Ubereats app for some delivery. After a solid hour of salivating over restaurant options I leaned towards the Asian-stylings of Carlton Wok. Plugged in the order and in about twenty minutes I had my food, courtesy of an Uber bicycle who’s driver was equally attractive as he was surly. To eating time.
A key consideration of any lazy order in is how well it will travel, and I was delighted that my honey chicken arrived with an ideal level of crunch remaining. In fact, it was almost like I cycled all the way to the store myself. But I didn’t. This dish was $11 and under the candy honey sauce was some solid meat. Great, yum, I finished it all and was very happy with the product from Carlton Wok. As a bonus there’s an adorable “enjoy” and my name on the Ubereats bag in cartoon lettering which is a charming detail I surely did not miss. A talented artistic kid or arts student. I’m feeling hungry again now.
