Cooking store in Chinatown?

I'm in the market for a carbon steel wok. I've looked on line and found some, but wanted to see if anyone in the Phila area knew of any stores in or near Chinatown that sold woks?

    There are a couple of supermarkets that sell them, but your best bet would be the restaurant supply store on Cherry St between 10th & 11th.

      I bought one at Spring Garden market 5th and Spring Garden so not quite China Town - they have a mixed assortment of woks and other Asian utensils and knives.

        There are several. There is a restaurant supply store called General restaurant supply store on Cherry Street:


        I highly recommend it.
