TaKorean Opening Restaurant in Navy Yard

takoreanTaKorean is expanding from food truck and Union Market stall into a new fast-casual restaurant in Navy Yard next summer.

Owner Mike Lenard says the location will offer a few new options beyond Korean-style tacos, including rice bowls with all the same toppings. TaKorean will also continue to offer salad bowls. In addition to bulgogi beef, tangy chicken, and caramelized tofu, there will also be a ssamjang roasted pork option, which has run as a special at the existing operations. Lenard plans to also have a limited beer selection and possibly small bottles of soju.

The restaurant will be located at the Twelve12 complex at 4th and M streets SE, next to a Sweetgreen. The 1,700 square-foot space will be "colorful, but simple," Lenard says.

The food truck and Union Market location will continue to operate as usual.
