A tragic fire struck Plano’s Mr. Wok back in 2019 and the restaurant closed with a quick promise to re-open.
You may remember Mr. Wok as the place in the Dallas area to order the best Peking Duck. Also, the restaurant served an admirabl;e Beggar’s Chicken. Both dishes were iconic and had patrons ordering the dishes days in advance to ensure their portion. The duck was simply that good. Check out our write-up here.
After years of discussion, some construction, litigation, and unforeseen blockades, Mr. Wok has finally thrown in the towel and announced today announced they will not re-open. This message was left on their Facebook page today:
