This week’s #FoodFriday comes to you from the Woky Man himself, Larkin Cen. Larkin is the man behind Bristol’s Asian food empire, Woky Ko. With restaurants across the city, you can get your Woky fix in Wapping Wharf, Clifton and St. Nick's Market.

The latest addition to Larkin’s restaurants is the brand new Lunch Bar on Queens Road, where you can 'Wake Up The Woky Way' with freshly ground coffee from Wogan Coffee Roasters and snack on some freshly baked treats before tucking into some incredible Bing flatbreads, Poke bowls and hot rice boxes.

Each of the four sites in Bristol has something different to offer - and here are Larkin’s top picks from each:


We’ve got a new lunch special at Rooftop! Our brand new Chicken or Aubergine Clay Pots are rice-based bowls of goodness that come topped with toasted pak choi, tomato, spring onions. Covered in satay sauce, sprinkled with sesame, salsa verde and chillies, these babies are not to be missed.

If you’re coming to Cargo it’s for Ramen, and for me it’s got to be our signature Tantanmen Ramen. It’s ground pork, mustard greens and chilli in a fantastic tantanmen broth. Packed full of flavour and warming to boot, it’s the perfect dish for these wintery evenings.

St Nicholas Market

It’s all about the Katsu down at St. Nick's. Our Woky Katsu sauce has become an absolute go-to for our customers and they keep coming back for more. It’s got that perfect balance of sweet and spicy, which when drenched over our crispy Korean Fried Chicken…well, it’s pretty special.

For me it has to be the Bing flatbread. Bing is a Chinese bread similar to that of an Indian roti or Mexican tortilla - and we’ve got an amazing selection of flatbreads to choose from. My top pick would have to be the spicy pork chashu or the spicy miso aubergine for my lunch on the go. We’ve used our own Gochujang and Katsu mayonnaise too, which really give these dishes a kick!
