Wok Away is a neat little concept restaurant in Santa Cruz. I put photos and a full explanation on my blog.
The short version is think Chinese made to order before your eyes. You select a base item such as noodles, rice, or vegetables then choose add-ons to your liking, such as shrimp, chicken, pork, beef, then more stuff like broccoli, bamboo shoots and that, then wrap it up with a choice of sauce. Cost for an order averages about $12 US and it will feed two people.
It's easy to find, just turn left at the light at Balashi, go up the hill to Santa Cruz and keep looking to your left. If you get to the light in Santa Cruz you missed it.
