Korean Street Eats, a new restaurant serving up the classic street food dishes of Korea, has officially set an opening date.
After a quick “soft opening” this week, the restaurant will officially open its doors on Saturday, August 15 at 2625 Old Denton Road, Suite 812, in the Korean Mall shopping center. As previously reported by Eater, Korean Street Eats is a project of chef Eugene Park, who’s spent time in the kitchens at DFW sushi spots Robata and Edoko Sushi.
The menu for Korean Street Eats boasts a variety of Korean dishes, ranging from kimbap (nori-wrapped rice rolls filled with veggies and meats) and tteokbokki, along with the rich ham and cheese toasts popularized by street vendors in Korea. “This is our comfort food. It’s like New York, you have to walk everywhere and that’s why street vendors are so popular. It’s a very hustle-and-bustle lifestyle, and these dishes allow people to eat while they’re walking or taking the subway to work,” Park told Eater back in June. “We are inspired by the energy of the street food style.”
When it debuts, Korean Street Eats will open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. On opening day, diners can look forward to discounts on Korean sodas and tteokbokki, along with free sides of kimchi with orders over $20.
