This Korean fusion restaurant located in South Jordan is one of our favorite destinations in the valley, to grab a vibrant plate of food at. The restaurant takes Korean ingredients and flavors but presents them in an accessible and beginner-friendly way.

There’s a ton of fun to be had here with everything from Philly cheesesteaks twisted up with Korean bulgogi beef, fried chicken with sweet and spicy sauce and of course their signature fusion tacos – that launched the business way back when initially as a food truck.
