Wokworks is a Philadelphia-based company serving fresh, farm-to-fork stir fry. Beginning as a brick-and-mortar store in 2013, Wokworks currently operates a mix of 10 corporate and franchise-owned locations, including pickup and delivery kitchens, food trucks, food carts, and kiosks. Our sites include hospitals, universities, breweries, apartment complexes, office buildings, and markets throughout the city.
Everything you order at Wokworks is made fresh from scratch, then seared in a wok over very high heat. Each bowl is packed with intense flavor, nutrients, and varied textures, plus a hint of smokiness. We’ve designed all of our cooking equipment and techniques to maximize wok hei, the distinctively complex flavor and aroma you get only when food, oil, and flames meet in a wok. Our healthy Asian fusion menu has something for everyone, with vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options and our classic noodle and rice bowls. We are 100% halal and make everything in-house using the freshest ingredients and no unnecessary additives.
Wokworks offers a healthier alternative to standard “Takeout Chinese Food ” using the freshest ingredients and our housemade sauces. The ancient wok cooking method flash sears ingredients and produces a unique smokey flavor while locking in nutrients and removing the need for excess oils or additives. Everything on the menu is fresh, made with clean ingredients, and 100% halal.
The average cook time per bowl is 90 seconds, making it possible to serve high-traffic areas well. Our menu caters to selective eaters with vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, halal, spicy, and keto options.
