The burrito was one of the items Gut Check sampled during the restaurant's first day of service on Tuesday, October 2. (The opening certainly wasn't a secret, with a line seven-deep well after the lunch rush at most nearby restaurants had abated.) The burrito was full of kimchi, fried rice, lettuce, cheese and an array of sauces as well as our choice of meat. (Don't worry vegetarians...Seoul Taco serves tofu, too.)

The rest of the menu has all of Seoul Taco regulars' favorites: tacos, quesadillas and the ever-popular "Gogi Bowl" (meat and veggies over rice with hot sauce and a fried egg), as well as pot stickers.

Choi hints at more additions to the meu, but says the restaurant will slowly add new items, "over the next few months."

The Seoul Taco team is already looking ahead to 2013, and Choi admits that he and Heck are very thankful to be in their current position.

"We didn't even expect to have a brick-and-mortar place at the this point," he says, humbly, and references how quickly people took to the truck. "If this goes well, we definitely want to have one more truck in St. Louis and maybe look to other cities as well."
