From Eater.com: Korean taco lovers in Los Angeles have been known to wait upwards of two hours to get the goods from Roy Choi's roving fleet of Kogi trucks. And now, they'll have one fixed location to flock to for the chef's food: Chego, Kogi's first brick and mortar restaurant. The joint soft opens this weekend, with a grand debut April 7. On the menu: Korean BBQ prime rib rice bowls, meatballs sliders, pickle pot, and more — all for under $10.
According to Kogi PR, Kogi the restaurant, aka Chego, will soft open this weekend with a grand debut on April 7. Here now, low and behold, interior photos! Check out the fresh new signage that just went up today, a big thumbs up because it's all fun and games at Chego. The small neon-hued space boasts lime green shelves, and a collage on the left wall comprised of the letters that spell Chego. Looks like guests will order from a counter, grab a number, and snag a table where food will then be delivered. In other Kogi news, the original menu has been revamped and it's now posted (above), divided into Beginning, Middle, and End plus Las Extras, Upgrades, and Bebidas. Dishes boast whimsical names like Cup O' Pickles (fennel, garlic, cucumber, radish), One Chubby Pork Belly (fried egg, water spinach, kochujang), and Rock Yer Road, the one dessert on the menu (smoked almond brownies, caramel, melting marshmallow fluff). Let the lines begin.
