RIVER NORTH — Seoul Taco, a St. Louis import marrying Mexican and Korean flavors, is coming to River North.

The mini-chain will open in May in the shuttered Mercadito Counter storefront at 738 N. Clark St., according to a news release. The River North outpost will be Seoul Taco's fourth restaurant, and first in Chicago, following a recent opening in downstate Champaign. 

“We like to think that we take the idea of Korean tacos to a new level,” owner David Choi said in a statement. “Chicago is such a melting pot of cultures, and we’re excited to be a part of such an amazing food scene.”

The menu includes tacos with "Seoul sauce" and Korean salad sold for $2.50 each, $8 burritos with Kimchi fried rice, and $8 Gogi bowls with rice, vegetables, a fried egg and Spicy Gochujang Pepper Sauce. Each entree comes with a choice of protein. 

Seoul Taco opened its first store in 2012 after finding success as a food truck. Check out this copy of the Champaign menu below:
