A representative of Seoul Taco was not immediately available for commentary upon What Now Chicago’s request.

According to the article, “Seoul Taco, the Korean-Mexican street food concept from chef David Choi, is opening a new location in the Lakeview area on Belmont and Kenmore avenues, expanding their presence in the Windy City to four locations. The location is set to open in July 2024.”

“The new location will be cooking up Korean-Mexican fare for nearby residents including sesame and citrus tacos, bulgogi bowls and burritos, and kimchi fried rice. Also on the menu are quesadillas with Seoul sauce, kimchi, queso blanco nachos, and a selection of domestic, Korean, and Mexican beers in addition to a variety of soju.”

“To break in the new space, Seoul Taco partnered with deconstructive pop artist Matt Gondek to adorn an exterior wall of the concept with a remix of Pablo Picasso’s Guernica painting, inspired by the characters of Family Guy. Streetwear, pop art and music are closely tied to the spirit of the brand.”

Seoul Taco’s website states, “The Korean-Mexican fast-casual restaurant features dishes inspired by traditional recipes from Chef/Owner David Choi’s childhood. Menu items include the Kimchi Fried Rice Burritos, Tacos, Nachos, Quesadillas, and Gogi Bowls – Seoul Taco’s take on the classic bibimbap dish.”

“By designing each location uniquely with the help of local artists, Choi aims to make each Seoul Taco integral to the community – both a place to eat and to meet.”
