Wok & Roll Has Unique Chinese Cuisine

Wok & Roll looks like an average Western New York Chinese restaurant. The interior is cleaner then most, but you’ll still find the trademark picture menu above the counter. It’s located in a busy plaza off Sheridan drive and the name Wok and Roll makes me think of a Chinese restaurant that you’d find in a mall, but like Peking Quick One they offer homestyle Cantonese and Dim Sum on a “secret menu” (it’s not really a secret, and it’s posted online) and it’s damn good. Our table had seven people and luckily everyone was feeling pretty adventurous that night, so we decided to order our dishes “family style” and try as much as possible (our grand total was 12 different dishes).

The “soup dumplings” are actually called Mini Juicy Pork Buns (above) and they’re the closest thing we’ve had to the magical experience of NYC soup dumplings. At this time I believe they are the only soup dumplings that we’ve found in WNY. For that reason alone, I know we will soon become regulars. The exterior was a just slightly chewy but the ground pork and small amount of broth inside the actual dumpling was fantastic. For just $4 for six dumplings, it’s worth ordering at least two servings. We didn’t try any other dumplings on their Dim Sum menu, but I have a feeling they might be equally as great. The Crispy Salt and Pepper Calamari ($5) was a surprising dish, something I probably wouldn’t have ordered but luckily someone else at the table did. The exterior was crunchy but light and had just the right amount of seasoning. The actual calamari wasn’t rubbery as I was expecting. It’s another dish that I’m looking forward to ordering again.
