“brick and mortar restaurant”
April of 2010, Chego became our first sit-down, brick and mortar restaurant. Taking a short break from the streets to chill and cheer from the sidelines, this happy, humble little LA-in-a-rice bowl restaurant full win and the color orange set out to reinvigorate the rice bowl. Slow roasted prime rib with creamed horseradish? Check. Sticky-sweet slabs of Berkshire pork belly over hot rice and fried egg? Done. A jukebox of feelings and L.A. youth piped in through the speakers? It’s been Chego Man approved.
Roy Choi made his name on Korean tacos, but his greatest achievement may be Chego!, the rice bowl emporium with delicious food and questionable customer service policies. (Actual quote from the company blog: "you get what you get and you don't get upset." Aw, so sweet!) But cultural mishmash deals like the $9 Chubby Pork Belly bowl justify the treatment: thick pieces of pork belly, veggies, cotija cheese and, yes, peanuts? Some call it the perfect stoner food. We call it dinner.
Roy Choi has moved to Chinatown, bringing with him his famous rice bowls, like the herb-intensive Chubby Pork Belly, and his crunchy-saucy 'Ooey-Gooey' fries.
