Delicious. Soulful. Simple.
Embodying the surging “K-Wave” that’s enveloped our world, STARR Restaurants’ KPOD translates Korean ingenuity into a singular dining experience. Vivacious and vibrant with subtle Seoul-inspired touches, the clean and contemporary University City space is the ideal showcase for chef Peter Serpico, who channels his Korean-American heritage to craft a knowledgeable but non-traditional take on the cuisine. A Philadelphia restaurant that honors the past and the future in equal stead, KPOD is a celebration of the culture-defining spirit of South Korea.
Stephen Starr and chef Peter Serpico are converting Pod into a ‘kinda Korean’ restaurant called KPod.
For over 20 years, POD has been an upbeat and delightful destination that emerged in University City as a futuristic love letter to Pan-Asian cuisine. Beloved by locals and visitors alike for its fun conveyor belt-driven food delivery and intimate seating pods, the restaurant made a name for itself and the Starr Restaurants brand.
In 2021, KPOD refreshes the future-forward Asian food experience with a deeper exploration of the flavors and dishes of Korea. Featuring shareable plates, an immense raw bar selection, and Korean staples, the menu drops a blast of intriguing bites mixed with craveable family-style classics.
