Chef Bill Kim has already said he is thinking about opening a restaurant in LA and said he wanted to do a pop-up out there. Now the Urbanbelly chef is being true to his word.
Kim, who also owns Belly Shack, will host a pop-up on Sept. 17 in Los Angeles in conjunction with the launch of sister-in-law Yasmina Cadiz's new shoe line, ToeJamm Shoes. The event, which will take place between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. at the Daily Dose Cafe in Downtown LA, will be dubbed Belly Pop and will have mini bites of from both of Kim's restaurants, like the Belly Dog and togarashi fries with curry mayo.
Kim said he'll also likely do a lamb and brandy dumpling that will be served with his brand new Urban Belly Seoul Sauce, a soy balsamic dipping sauce, which will make its consumer debut at Dose Market on Sept. 25. The Belly Pop event is free and will be capped around 100 people so be sure to RSVP.
As for that LA restaurant, Kim is still scouting locations, but said Downtown LA is the perfect area for him to open something.
