Yesterday, Jon's sissy Teresa tweeted about First Friday's in Venice... I felt a pinch of jealousy and starting craving Kogi. Fiending Kogi, more like. Anyways, then I thought of how I went to Chego before I left and how I hadn't yet blogged about it yet. Just giving you my train of thought here...
So, Chego. Chef Roy, of Kogi fame, opened up his first brick and mortar. A non-truck venture for the same Kogi generation. Rice bowls are the main dish at the low-key resto; same Korean fusion as Kogi but not as Mexican I would say. The price points are friendly and the food is deliciously messy :) I can't find the group shot with the lovely girls I went with, but I managed to snap a pic with "Papi" himself. Cheers!
