Wokworks Fishtown fired up the woks for take-out, pick-up, delivery and catering on Friday, January 13th, at 11:00am, at 1429 Marlborough Street (corner of Marlborough and Frankford).

The new flagship for Wokworks will have the largest menu of any Wokworks to date – with new menu items that include Bento Boxes, Tiger Fried Rice, Fresh Juice Shots, Crispy Rice Treats, Cinnamon Sugar Crispy Wonton “Chinese Churro” Chips, and several new vegan and gluten free options. New items join signature Wokworks staples like Chili Garlic Chicken Rice Bowl, Dry Pepper Steak Rice Bowl, Drunk Noodles, Pad See Yew, Dan Dan Lo Mein, Bam Bam Chicken, Spicy Garden Bowl, Miso Soup, Crispy Dumplings – and build your own bowls where patrons can pick their base, protein, sauce and toppings.

Opening hours for Wokworks Fishtown are Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, from 11:00am to 9:00pm, and Friday and Saturday, 11:00am to 1:00am. Wokworks is available on all major delivery platforms, plus features direct delivery ordering from the Wokworks website.

“We have lived in Fishtown for seven years and this neighborhood is our home – we love everything about it,” said Brennan in a statement. “We have wanted to open here for several years, and when the opportunity came up to open right along the red hot Frankford Avenue restaurant row, we jumped on it. With this location, this completes our master plan for expansion across the city – with 10 locations in Philadelphia (and beyond) that offers a delivery and/or pick-up radius that spans from Fishtown, Kensington, Fairmount, Temple, Center City, West Philly and University City, North Philly, Northeast Philly, Northern Liberties, East Falls, South Philly, Manayunk, and Roxborough, plus Cheltenham, Glenside, Wyncote, Jenkintown and Elkins Park.”

Brennan added, “With our new flagship location in Fishtown comes our largest menu ever – and the debut of Bento Boxes! We also expanded our gluten free and vegan selections based on customer demand. Watch for more new offerings later this spring, plus watch for the debut of a new cooking ‘wokbot’ that makes your meal to perfection.”

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. They designed all 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. Everything on the menu is fresh, made with clean ingredients, and 100% halal. Our menu caters to selective eaters with vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, halal, spicy, and keto options.

For this opening, Wokworks Fishtown will debut with the largest Wokworks menu that exists to date – with the following new additions to the menu:

All New Bento Boxes (Chicken, Steak, Shrimp, Happy Fam, Vegetable)
Tiger Fried Rice
Fresh Juice Shots
Crispy Rice Treats
Cinnamon Sugar Crispy Wonton Chips
General Tso’s Vegetables
Dan Dan Tofu
Spicy Orange Tofu

For Fishtown’s location, patrons will find a newly painted and renovated exterior of what was formerly Pizza A Pie. Located across from Heffe Tacos, and the Welcome to Fishtown mural, customers will spot the bright signature pink branding and letters going north on Frankford Avenue.
