What’s better than dinner out? Dinner out that supports your local community. Ling’s Wok Shop, located at 20511 N. Hayden Road, Ste. 100, in North Scottsdale recently launched its Cooking for a Cause program.

Each month the flex-casual Asian eatery will feature a special chef-inspired dish where $5 from every order will benefit that month’s designated charity. Guests that prefer a different entrée can still participate by leaving a donation for the charity.

This month, Ling’s Wok Shop is partnering with the Arizona Humane Society and offering a special Honey Walnut Shrimp dish.
“Having grown up here and raising a family here compels me to do everything I can to give back to this community,” says John Banquil, owner of Ling’s Wok Shop.

In May, the featured dish will be Blazing Salmon benefiting the ALS Association Arizona Chapter. In June, make way for Wango Mango to support the Alzheimer’s Association Desert Southwest Chapter.

Ling’s Wok Shop is the latest concept from the team that owns the popular Ling & Louie’s Asian Bar and Grill. On your next date night, or night out with friends, plan to dine out for a cause and support great charities in our community at Ling’s Wok Shop. To learn more, visit
