MAGIC WOK RICE BOWLS
Business Hours: Mon-Sun, 11am-9pm
Menu (From Zomato)
Note: This review is for their Gateway Mall branch that already closed.
I have a new favorite fast food place in Gateway Mall, and it’s Magic Wok! I first came across the place when I picked up some camera equipment while in Cubao and out of curiosity, I stormed the counter with a ‘it’s new so let’s try it’ mindset, and the rest was foodie history!

Beef & Brocolli Rice Bowl – 89 PHP
Where exactly? In Gateway mall, Cubao’s Food Express section on the 3rd floor (a floor below the cinemas), sided along with other fast food chains such as Steak Break, KFC, Wendy’s, etc. They have since been closed there now so you now can only find them at Glorietta 4 and Alabang Town Center.
Their menu can be categorized to 149 PHP Bento Boxes (set meals), Noodles and rice bowls comprising of Seafood, Pork, Beef and Chicken that would range between 85-95 PHP. There’s free Nido Soup, to boot! The meals start out with regular white rice, but can be upgraded to fried rice with just 5 PHP. The drinks are a little expensive, with a 16oz Coke costing 32 PHP, but I guess that comes with the fast food territory. Overall, you can have a satisfying Korean-ish complete meal (lest the dessert) for only 122 PHP!
For sure, I’ll be dropping by here whenever I’m near their branches. Well, can’t beat something new and good compared to the other staple restaurants you’ve been dining at for years. Anyway, I hope they get more branches soon. Try the place out when you can!
