The Scoop: Seoul Taco to open in Chicago

Northward expansion continues for Seoul Taco, as owner David Choi announced he’ll open a fourth location of the Korean-Mexican fast casual restaurant at 738 N. Clark St., in Chicago’s trendy, art-centric River North neighborhood.

“The River North neighborhood is a vibrant neighborhood,” Choi said. “People are moving back into that area, and we found a spot that I fell in love with.”

Choi said he hopes to open the 80-seat restaurant at the end of May, and its menu will feature the familiar tacos, bowls, burritos, quesadillas and nachos currently available at the other locations in St. Louis, Columbia, Missouri and Champaign, Illinois.

Choi has no immediate plans to open a fifth location, nor does he rule it out. “Things have been coming in waves,” he said. “If an opportunity comes, I’ll always look into it.”

For the moment, the search for a new location for Seoul Q is on hold, but Choi said he plans to resume the hunt after getting the Chicago location up and running.

Choi is not the only former food truck-only establishment heading north. Guerrilla Street Food is also on the hunt for a brick-and-mortar location in Chicago.
