Izakaya-influenced Punk Wok opens on Tuesday, December 14 at Sylvan Supply in Sylvan Park, with plenty of meat-filled skewers and Japanese whisky. Located at 4101 Charlotte Ave suite G-20, Punk Wok is Clay Greenberg’s exciting next project, and a much-needed silver lining after his last restaurant Silo was destroyed in March 2020’s tornado that barreled through Germantown.

The menu at Punk Wok focuses on a mix of Japanese and Chinese dishes at the new casual restaurant. The menu leads off with cold options from Japanese potato salad and a poke bowl to cucumber and seaweed salads. Next up are the hot dishes, including a katsu sando, a spicy Thai lobster shot, karaage, and crab rangoon filled with pimento cheese. The page wraps up with wok-fired carnivore-pleasing treats like Bangkok chicken, beef chow mein, and char siu pork fried rice. For vegetarians, there’s also ginger and scallion tofu and kimchi fried rice. The owner also says they’ll offer sushi.
