A new spot for Korean fried chicken is coming to Piedmont. K-Pub, a beer bar and restaurant serving Korean pub classics, will open at 7339 NE MLK this May.
From the woman behind Chungdam on SE Powell, K-Pub will have 14 taps, a parking lot with food carts, and a dedicated bibimbap bar — customers will choose from a number of kimchis and vegetables for the classic Korean rice bowl, making it ideal for vegan and vegetarian diners as well as those loading up on galbi. The kitchen will also offer a number of hits from Chungdam, as well as Korean fried chicken and a variety of kimchis.
When it comes to booze, the bar will have two ciders and 12 taps dedicated to beers; two beers will be Korean and Japanese, and five will rotate periodically. Owner Hae Jung Heiter plans to offer more drink options from the food carts outside, including a coffee cart. Details on the cart lineup and the menu are coming soon.
