This Week’s Dish: Winfield’s Gathering Place Closing, Seoul Taco Introduces Second Food Truck
Seoul Taco is bringing its Korean-Mexican fusion eats on the street with its second food truck starting today. Owner David Choi is bringing in the red Seoul Taco truck (the original is blue) to allow his team to cover more ground during operational hours and service requests for catering and special events.
Not only is the truck giving more opportunities to feed hungry patrons, all purchases from the red Seoul Taco truck on Mondays will benefit St. Louis MetroMarket, a mobile farmers’ market on a transformed city bus that gives access to healthy, affordable food in St. Louis City food deserts. Choi and MetroMarket Founder Jeremy Goss became friends at their local church and hope to bring awareness about the need for resources like the organization’s grocery store on wheels. On MetroMarket Mondays, all proceeds will go back to the organization from sales on the new red truck.
