Peculiar Kitchen Now Accepting Reservations

Peculiar Kitchen is a reimagination of Peculiar Slurp, located on the 300 Block of Penn Ave, in Downtown Scranton. We serve New American Comfort Food with a serious passion for Asian flare. We offer dishes for meat lovers, vegetarians & vegans. We can accommodate dietary restrictions like gluten free, paleo and keto, to ensure all our guests are taken care of.

We recently refreshed our brand from Peculiar Slurp to Peculiar Kitchen, to let our customers know that we are not just about the Ramen. Our love for other cuisines just made us want to open the culinary flood gates to cook whatever we want!

This past year has been difficult for many, especially those in the restaurant industry. We decided this was as good a time as any to do a brand refresh, add a few coats of paint, some new artwork and of course update our menu to be more inclusive of other cuisines and styles of cooking! You can still get your ramen here, but we offer so much more!

The atmosphere at Peculiar Kitchen is hip, funky, artistic, vibrant, and relaxed. Our restaurant is great for families, individuals, and couples alike. We offer table seating inside, counter seating at the open kitchen or limited seating on our patio. We just celebrated three years at our current location in Downtown Scranton and look forward to serving you for years to come! We are now open to full capacity and are accepting reservations for regular dinner service as well tickets for our upcoming come chef dinners.

Back in 2012, we started Peculiar Culinary as a passion project and started hosting pop up restaurants and catering special events. You may remember our original home base at a Hose Co in Hughestown, near Pittston, where we also started our food truck business in 2015. We gained popularity with our unique dinners and food truck stops at places like Sabatini’s Bottleshop on “Taco Tuesday” and other locations around the area, including lunches on Courthouse Square and festivals at Montage Mountain or breweries like SBC. We have since sold our food truck with our focus on the restaurant and catering upon availability. From our humble beginnings with Peculiar Culinary to Peculiar Slurp…Join us on this adventure, and the new beginning that is Peculiar Kitchen!
