Werk, Wok Wok!

A Restaurant Spotlight on this Far East Fusion, Gourmet Inclusive Eatery
At Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana, families have the option to dine at not one, not two, but ten different Gourmet Inclusive venues. From 24-hour room service (hellooo breakfast in bed!), to fresh poolside ceviche and even a multi-course tasting menu, it’s safe to say that there are options to please every palate- picky kids included.
The Gourmet Plaza, which is lined with trees and features nightly live music and local vendors is the perfect spot for a family night out. One of our favorites restaurants here is Wok Wok- an Asian-inspired eatery with an array of appetizers, sashimi, rolls, entrees and dessert. Find a combination of Thai-, Japanese- and Chinese-influenced dishes on the menu, as well as Woktails – a selection of signature drinks to pair with your dinner. Every member of the family can enjoy a delicious meal here, whether they’re Pad Thai pros or not so savvy about sushi. Here are some of our recommendations:
Our Favorites: It’s no secret: Pad Thai rocks our world! We also love the Kaeng Kari Goong (Shrimp, yellow curry, onion & fried leek) and the Saiko Sake roll, which comes with a spicy Sriracha kick. If all else fails, you can’t go wrong with classic Kung Po Chicken.
Most Photogenic Meal: Insta-speaking, the Spicy Beef Salad and Red Pearl Rolls are clear winners with their vibrant colors and clever presentation. They taste pretty great, too! We’re thinking aerial views at the table, and close-up focus on the dish details. #EEEEATS
For the Kiddos: Try the Fish Fingers with Fries (tastes like chicken!), Fried Pork Dumplings (hello chicken nugget replacement) Chicken Fried Rice and Cheese Rangoons. Is it bad that we’re adults and still want to order all of this?
For Sushi-Novices: Start with a California Roll before upgrading to a Spicy Tuna. Wonton Soup is better than any chicken noodle, and you can’t go wrong with Kao Phad Gai, better known as fried rice.
Winning Woktail: Opt for some sake-cocktails like the My Sweet Sumo (sake, melon liqueur, pineapple juice & lime), or the Kyoto Breeze (sake, cranberry juice, grapefruit juice and Sprite). Personally, we love the Ho Chi Minhtini, a mix of gin, cucumber juice, lime juice & elderflower syrup.
Pro-tip: Wasabi at your own risk!
