Kogi BBQ Chef Roy Choi's stationary restaurant Chego opens today in the Palms area of Los Angeles. We hear it will feature rice bowls with interesting toppings, which we'd definitely be up to trying. The same winning Korean theme carries over to Choi's land locale, which should be good news for how the restaurant will fare.
Their menu is casual, sprinkled with slang, like the dessert called "Rock Yer Road" that's smoked almond brownies, with caramel melting marshmallow fluff ($5).
