Stir Crazy is a Fresh Wok-based restaurant located on the 4th
Floor of the Palisades Center Mall in West Nyack, NY. You can
order right off the menu or walk over to the help-yourself fresh
veggie bar and make your own stir fry. The chefs make the
stir fry right in front of you although I don't go during the main
hours because I've seen them use the same wok for both
gluten free and non-gluten free meals. Although I haven't
done the research to know if the toxins burn off in the wok, so
I make it a point to ask for a station that isn't used normally
and I go during the off hours.
The menu is a little daunting and most items are not gluten
free because they use sauces that are integrated early into the
food prep (I haven't asked yet if they can be made w/out the
sauce because I always go to the wok station).
By making my own stir fry, I'm able make the largest meal
ever witnessed in restaurant. No joke! Enough for two-three
meals at best.
The wok station is fresh most of the time and you have to tell
the wait staff BEFORE you go up to the bar that you are gluten
free so they can write it on your ticket. By presenting the chef
with your choices he immediately goes to a seperate
refrigerator for the meat of your choice and has a separate
compartment for the sauces. Make sure you tell them how
much sauce you want with your stir fry because they will over
sauce the meal. I made this mistake a couple of times and
found my plate puddled.
The staff are very accommodating and I've found the veggie
station very ornate and full of choices just sometimes I've
found the veggies a little old and expiring. Make sure you
peruse the station before you go in.
The location of this is perfect (next to the movie theatre in the
mall), I would just remind everyone to look at the veggie
station before picking the make your own wok option.
