Chef Roy Choi, Pioneer of Food Trucks, Is Bringing the Flavors of L.A.'s Koreatown to Las Vegas

Our kind of food fusion.

The epic international dining landscape in Las Vegas is getting its latest boost from the most exciting food city in America — and that would be Los Angeles. Yes, chef Roy Choi is getting ready to launch a new concept in Sin City inspired by L.A.'s Koreatown, where he grew up.

According to a media release, the new space will be a "multifaceted, multisensory experience as part of the Monte Carlo's transformation into Park MGM.

Choi said the new space will be "full of soul and culture that is influenced by the energy of Koreatown."

Choi is the pioneer of the modern food truck movement — which flowed from the raging success of his fusion Korean barbecue taco operation, Kogi BBQ — and he's always been his hometown's favorite chef-of-the-people. His many projects also include LocoL, meant as chef-driven, healthier fast food in food deserts like L.A.'s Watts.
