Urban Seoul To Open Korean Fusion Restaurant At Irvine Spectrum Center

IRVINE, Calif., August 2014 – Popular Korean fusion restaurant Urban Seoul is opening at Irvine Spectrum Center this summer.

The brainchild of local restaurateurs Bronnie Lee and Chef Kacy Jun, Urban Seoul’s borderless kitchen draws inspiration from the cultures and communities it serves. Born of Southern California’s culinary melting pot, some of Urban Seoul’s most popular dishes blend together the flavors of Asia and Mexico and pays homage to the street food scene. Must try dishes include the chorizo fried rice; quesadilla, made with a spicy kimchi pancake and stuffed with grilled chicken, melted cheese and a kimchi sour cream dipping sauce; and the Korean pork belly tacos, topped with scallions and picked onions served in a fresh tortilla.

“Urban Seoul showcases the wonderful melding of cultures and flavors here in Southern California,” said Stacie Ellis, senior director of marketing for Irvine Company Retail Properties. “We’re excited to be able to bring them to Irvine Spectrum Center.”

Urban Seoul will be located between Barnes & Noble and Macy’s. For more information, visit
