The Scoop: Seoul Taco signs lease for space in The Loop

July 24th 06:07pm, 2012

Last month, David Choi of food truck Seoul Taco informed The Scoop that he and business partner Andy Heck were roving the streets in search of a brick-and-mortar space to call home thanks to the popularity of their Korean barbecue fusion fare. The hunt is over now that Choi and Heck have signed the lease at 571 Mehlville Ave., the former home of Gyros in The Loop, with expectations to unlock doors by mid-September.

The restaurant, also to be called Seoul Taco, will be open for lunch, dinner and possibly late night. Diners can expect a more expansive menu than that offered by the Seoul truck (some of which is pictured above), including items such as Korean barbecue burritos, ssam (Korean lettuce wraps), kimchi-fried rice and other specials. While the interior sit-down space is minimal, patio seating will be available and, noted Choi, “We envision a lot of people taking it to-go.”

How did Seoul end up at The Loop location? “It’s a funny thing,” noted Choi. “Mayor Slay tweeted a couple months ago that we were looking for a storefront and someone contacted us shortly after that about the space.” Call it Twitter-dipity.

    Any idea what sort of timeline there is before this place opens?

    I just hope this doesn’t lead U-City Grill to leave the loop from competition. Is there enough room on the Loop for two Korean BBQ joints?
