Show 101, December 13, 2014: Urban Seoul Borderless Kitchen

Kacy Jun of Urban SeoulUrban Seoul is one of the 20 plus distinctive dining destinations in the Diamond Jamboree in Irvine. It’s an energetic restaurant that celebrates passion for food and its remarkable ability to adapt. The food is mostly a creative mash-up of Korean and Mexican flavors. The highly successful concept was created by Orange County restaurateur Bronnie Lee and Chef Kacy Jun.

Chef Kacy was mentored by acclaimed sushi chef James Hamamori. He also cooked for Chef Azmin Ghahreman at both The St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort and Sapphire Laguna.

Brad A. Johnson, the fare-reaching restaurant critic for The Orange County Register, is a big fan of their Chorizo Kimchi Fried Rice. It’s chorizo, pork belly, pickled red onions, kimchi, garlic, rice and a sunny side up egg.

One of Chef Kacy’s favorite menu items is the Kalbi Burger. It’s his homage to the classic In-N-Out Burger he grew up with.

Chef Jun is our guest.
