Restauranteur and owner, David Choi, crafted the menu that combines Choi’s mastery of classic Korean BBQ with a nod to Mexican street fare in the dishes’ delivery, featuring  Korean-influenced tacos, quesadillas, burritos and nachos.

The menu showcases recipes from Choi’s childhood with a focus on fresh ingredients and bold flavors. Guests pick their protein from bulgogi beef; a soy-based marinated chicken; spicy pork with a Gochugaru (Korean red chile flake) dry rub and Gochujang marinade; or tofu with a gluten-free, tamari and dry spices marinade.
