Former MasterChef finalist Larkin Cen is to open his new Bristol restaurant Woky Ko at CARGO, Wapping Wharf from lunchtime, this Friday 28th October.

At Woky Ko, expect modern twists on familiar Asian dishes, using responsibly sourced ingredients with no added MSG. Everything will be cooked fresh to order, starring Larkin’s unique and exciting flavour combinations in what will be a light and casual open-kitchen dining room.

Bristol-based Larkin has created an opening menu, with more dishes to be added in the coming weeks and both lunchtime and takeaway options to be introduced. The opening menu will feature dishes such as salt and pepper squid with mirin aioli; bao filled with braised and shredded pork with hoisin ketchup, apple and celeriac slaw and toasted sesame seeds; sweet and sour chicken with fresh pineapple, pomegranate and charred red onion salsa; and dessert options to include a sweet take on a classic bao: salted caramel ice cream sliders.

Larkin says, “Woky Ko is all about fresh Asian flavours cooked with some serious wok skills. Our team behind the open kitchen pass are total wokstars! But of course, as is my style, the dishes feature some more unusual combinations which we hope people will love. The menus will be a movable feast for sure and we’ll definitely be listening to feedback in the first few weeks of opening to evolve this as we go.

“It’ll be a casual, and very cosy, dining atmosphere for those wanting to sit in our light, modern and brand new shipping container restaurant to enjoy lunch or come in and try our Xiao for dinner. And once we’re settled in, a takeaway option and a lunchtime menu will be added too. CARGO is such an exciting location for this restaurant. We’re in great company, and I can’t wait to be part of this new food community in the city.”

Woky Ko will not be taking bookings, and opening hours will be 11.30am to 10pm Tuesday – Thursday, 11.30am to 10.30pm Friday and Saturday, and 11.30am to 10pm on Sundays. Find out more by visiting the Woky Ko website, or following on Twitter or Instagram.
