Village Wok, a Stadium Village institution, closing after 40 years


Last week is your last chance to say farewell to Village Wok.

Update: Bun Mi Sandwiches has just announced that after eight years in business, it will also be closing its doors. The shop will serve its last sandwiches on Friday, August 26.

In April, we reported that a new on-campus apartment complex threatened to shutter a number of Stadium Village businesses, including Big 10 Restaurant and Bar, Espresso Exposé, Village Wok, and Bun Mi Sandwiches. Unfortunately, that painful prophecy has come true for one beloved Gopher eatery.

After 40 years in business and seeing countless undergrads and their families through countless campus dinners, the Chinese institution Village Wok has announced that it is closing.

Their final service will be on August 21, so you still have a little time to get in for a legendary whole fish with black bean sauce.
