Wokworks opening Margate location in June

Owners Brennan and Samantha Foxman are expanding Wokworks out of Philadelphia for the first time ever and opening their first one in South Jersey. The fast-growing and popular wok-based fast casual restaurant will open its newest location at the Jersey Shore. 

Wokworks Margate is set to open in early June in time for shore and beach season at 7801 Ventnor Avenue (Ventnor and Douglas), in the former home of Greens and Grains – and years ago a former Stewart’s. The new location is 2,000 square feet (inside and out) with ample outdoor seating for 40 to 50 guests right on the main street that runs throughout the Island.

Wokworks is a Philadelphia-based company that prides itself on crafting fresh, delicious, and healthy Asian fusion cuisine using the traditional method of wok cooking. The signature stir-fries are made from scratch and seared in a wok over high heat, infusing each dish with intense flavor, nutrients, and a hint of smokiness known as “wok hei.” From the farm-to-fork approach, ensuring the freshest ingredients, to the customizable menu tailored to each diner’s taste preferences, Wokworks is committed to delivering vegetable-forward fast food without compromising on taste.

When opened, Wokworks Margate will feature signature favorites like Chili Garlic Chicken, Dry Pepper Steak, Drunk Noodles, Pad See Yew, Tiger Fried Rice, Honey Garlic Shrimp, Dan Dan Lo Mein, Bam Bam Chicken, Crispy Vegetable Dumplings – and build your own bowls where patrons can pick their base, protein, sauce and toppings. For new items, look for  Dry Pepper Korean Fried Wings, Peach Yuzu Slushies, and Single Origin local soft serve premium ice cream.

Wokworks offers a healthier alternative to standard “Takeout Chinese Food ” using the freshest ingredients and house-made 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 and made with clean ingredients. The average cook time per bowl is 90 seconds, making it possible to serve high-traffic areas well. The menu caters to selective eaters with vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, spicy, and keto options. The menu will also have some kid-friendly selections.

Wokworks Margate will be open seven day a week, with daytime and evening hours, including late-night service on weekends. They’ll also be available on all major delivery platforms, plus features direct delivery ordering from the website.
