Here's what I've been able to find out about the new Korean restaurant opening up in Loves Park: it's location and name. The rest is a mystery I can't wait to solve.

The new restaurant will be located in the strip mall on Riverside in between Perryville and Mulford. The one next to the Beef-A-Roo that used to be the Rock and Roll themed one (I'm really not sure what it's theme is now. I've seen a lot of bicycles as a decoration. Maybe it's exercise. I'm not sure), right next to Pho Squared.

Note: If you haven't visited Pho Squared yet, you should correct that immediately. The food is delicious and the staff might be the friendliest in town. I seriously think they're mocking me sometimes they're so nice. The menu can be intimidating to the unfamiliar but they are MORE than happy to get you to your perfect order.

Back to the Korean BBQ place.

It will be called KBQ. According to the logo on their website, they'll be serving Korean bbq and chicken. They also want to let you know that they are hiring.

I tried to call the number on the website to see if they had any idea when they were going to be open and was greeted with a voice mail with no further information.

I tried to see if there were any other KBQs but the only and the only other one I could find was in Sri Lanka. I could be wrong but I don't think they're related.

I'm highly looking forward to this new place. Hopefully, we'll have more information soon.
