The First Wok Restaurant at 6740 Old 28th Street in the heart of Cascade

is one of our favorite lunch spots.  We enjoy the pleasant surroundings,

the smiling service, but most of all, we love the food.

We aren’t adventurous when it comes to foreign specialties but we

have eaten Chinese cuisine for years all over the US. First Wok is the

best Chinese restaurant we have been to in the Grand Rapids area.

The egg drop soup is not just a few morsels swimming in broth, it is

chock full of vegetables, shrimp, and seasoned just right. A perfect

appetizer for most people, it can be almost a whole meal, along with

an eggroll.

Since we aren’t big fans of hot, spicy foods we can’t testify directly

for those dishes, although our friends seem to like them.  We can say

we get lots of freshly cooked Chinese dinners, served with flair.  If you

haven’t been to First Wok, you should give it a try.  Note: there are

other First Wok locations in Grand Rapids, sadly, these don’t come up

to the standards we experienced at the restaurant in Cascade.

 

We snapped a few photos of the interior when we were at lunch last week.

We love to try new places to eat, especially for lunch. But Marie

Catrib’s in the East Hills neighborhood of Grand Rapids is an old

favorite.  We have friends, John & Betsy who live in Heritage Hill

and Marie’s is a great place to meet.

The atmosphere is cozy and warm.  The restaurant is always busy.

And the food is unusual and delicious.  I prefer the vegetarian,

local products, my spouse prefers traditional fare. At Marie’s,

both of us are happy with the selections.

On our recent visit, I ordered the veggie Sweet Potato and

Quinoa burger [heavenly and huge] while my pard ordered the

Turkey Rueben [messy but delish].
