It's great for hungry hunter
On a bitterly cold winter night that I still didn't have my meal at dinner time, there was nothing better than finding a place that could serve hot meal quickly. Nestled on Darling Street in Balmain, Wok On Inn is definitely a place that won't disappoint you this small noodle bar has a great menu and serves delicious pan-Asian dishes quickly.

The noodle bar has been renovated to give it a new look. Once I stepped in, I could feel the atmosphere of the place; a touch of Asian-themed look and feel. There're messages in a variety of Asian languages on the board and the chairs, such as Do you like spicy food? The dishes are tasty. Adding to the character of this place, the neon signs, the signage of a smiling face, and the backdrop of a big photograph depicting the hustle and bustle of big Asian cities are simply amusing.

Its flexibility is one of the distinctive advantages - you can choose what noodle type (or you can simply choose steamed rice), sauce and cooking style you would like, ranging from Chinese, Thai and Malaysian culinary traditions such as Pad Thai or Malaysian laksa.

For me, I ordered steamed rice with tofu and vegetables as ingredients. I settled myself on the couch, and the dish was delivered within ten minutes. The tofu and vegetables were stir fried, with added oyster source to the dish that gave it an extra flavour. The food was simply delicious.
