The Wok, located on Route 9 in Wellesley Hills, is a great place to indulge in Chinese cuisine, especially if you are living gluten-free! As stated on their website “ All food is made to order and can be customized to meet your needs.”
With the exception of the appetizers, most of the dishes can be modified to be gluten-free by altering the sauce. They use their own ‘special sauce’ which is made with gluten-free soy sauce. The menu offers an abundant selection of items including soups, poultry, beef, lamb, pork, seafood, vegetarian and tofu dishes as well as a Healthy Heart section filled with steamed and stir fried creations.
On visits we have tried many dishes including the naturally gluten-free Vegetarian’s Delight, the modified Fried Rice, the modified General Gau’s Chicken and Crispy Spicy Chicken. Both of these chicken entrees were coated in corn starch. All food is free of trans fats and MSG. I applaud the staff which presented themselves exceptionally knowledgeable of their menu and the gluten-free diet. We have never had a problem meeting our dietary needs here.
