TaKorean will treat the first 100 customers at all of its restaurants a free meal Tuesday. The giveaway is a celebration of its location at 13th & U streets, Northwest. The new location, which also debuts Tuesday, is the fourth restaurant founder and CEO Mike Lenard has opened since starting TaKorean as a food truck in 2010. Lenard says he donated the truck to Arcadia Farms in 2015 to focus on expanding TaKorean’s brick-and-mortar presence.
Along with build-your-own Korean bowls and tacos, the U Street location will feature Wild Kombucha, Captain Cookie & the Milkman, and a range of local craft beers. Nicole Shearer, TaKorean’s Creative Director, says Edit Lab at Streetsense went for a bright and open look at the former U Street Cafe space.
And don’t worry. If you’re not among the customers getting a free lunch (capped at $9), TaKorean is still offering its weekly $2 Taco Tuesday special across all its restaurants.
