Flavor Fusion: Urban Seoul 2.0
At Irvine Spectrum Center, Urban Seoul 2.0’s borderless kitchen draws inspiration from the cultures and communities it serves. Born of Southern California’s culinary melting pot, some of Urban Seoul’s most popular dishes blend together the flavors of Asia and Mexico and pays homage to the street food scene.
The fusion restaurant is celebrating its one-year anniversary at Irvine Spectrum Center. Here’s a look at some of our favorite dishes:
The Urban 3b ($10) takes a twist on the classic Asian dish bibimbap. Packed with your choice of meat, shredded romaine lettuce, purple cabbage, radish, cucumber, carrots, fried onions, poached egg, on white or purple rice. We recommend the Kogi beef!
Four words, one mouthwatering entrée. Chorizo Kimchi Fried Rice ($12.50) serves up a sizzling bowl of chorizo, bacon, pork belly, kimchi, garlic, rice, pickled red onions, green onions and a sunny side up egg.
The Urban Pork Bun ($8.75) is comprised of five hour braised and seared pork belly, mixed green and cucumber kimchi on a pillowy bun.
The new dish on the block is sizzling! Succulent shrimps, steamed broccoli, garlic fried rice, a fried egg and Urban Seoul’s secret sauce make up the Garlic Shrimp Skillet ($13.95).
Urban Seoul 2.0 is located next to Pieology Pizzeria at Irvine Spectrum Center.
