Joy Wok in Kansas City, Missouri

 Joy Wok opened in the old Golden Corral building just outside Liberty in Kansas City, Missouri.  All the children and I ran over to check it out! 

They have an area where you can get octopus or whatever cooked up for ya.  We didn't take any chances on that one.  Buffet instead!  We spent $85 with a decent tip, so it is pretty expensive.  They do have a great variety of foods including the usual egg rolls, sweet and sour chicken and fried rice. 

If you remember the old Golden Corral, you remember why you stopped going to that place and avoided it like the plague.  Hey, we go to the Golden Corral over in Gladstone or whatever, but nope, you couldn't get us to go to this one since... hmm... quite some time ago.  They had a rampant fly problem, they didn't clean well and it was just horrifically disgusting that such a place would even be open.  Seriously.  It wasn't that awful 10 years ago but I guess they went downhill.  (bleh)

Anyway, the Joy Wok folks didn't just slap a coat of paint on, clean up the bugs and call it good.  It truly was clean and completely remodelled.  It is an entirely different place.  We'll be back again and if you're in the area, I'd encourage you to give it a try as well.

After we ate, we spent several quarters and fed these koi fish.  I tried to get an action shot but they moved too quickly for me to get a clear picture:

  1. So nice when new people really clean up instead of just doing a quick fumigate. I love a good sized koi pond, love watching the fish.

    1. It's really gorgeous. You wouldn't know it's the same restaurant building. :)

  2. Thanks for the review. The food does look really good! I'd skip the octopus too. ;) Glad they got the place cleaned up; flies are one thing I cannot stand...anywhere...much less in a restaurant.

    1. Thanks! Hospitals and restaurants... those I think are the most important places to keep clean, although of course I wouldn't welcome bugs anywhere else, either.

    2. If you make it on a Friday or Saturday they have some pretty "meaty" crablegs, and the BEST froglegs I have ever had. Glad you enjoyed it.

  3. We had a wonderful restaurant just up the road from us but it changed hands and went the other way now no one goes at all, it's not bugs they just don't know how to cook.

    1. Oh no! That must've been so disappointing. I know I give a couple of tries, anyway, but then... so long! :/

  4. Yaaa for a lovey clean restaurant... and it took me a while to figure out the fish picture! I though it first looked like some slimy dish!
