Kortako Starts Serving Us Korean Fusion Food Today

I know many of you have been waiting for the opening of  Bon Chon on John spawn, Kortako, on Nassau St. (btw. John & Fulton) which was pushed back due to Department of Health inspection delays. When I walked past on Friday there was an unexpected line out the door, and it turned out they were giving away free food during a soft opening (and you guys can apparently sniff out free food!). I grabbed a menu and confirmed that they were opening today at 11 a.m. but didn’t have time to stand in the growing line. I’ll give you a full report later this week, but you can take a look at the menu after the jump.

The menu isn’t up online, so this is a general overview. It’s an assembly line-style place so you pick a carb, then a protein, supplements, and a sauce. If you’re an indecisive person it’s maybe best to study the options before getting in line.

Carbs: Flour taco, corn taco, burrito, white rice, brown rice, kimchi fried rice, sandwich, rice vermicelli noodle.

Protein: Bulgogi ($8.59), skirt steak ($8.59), spicy pork ($7.59), chicken ($7.29), spicy chicken ($7.29), sweet soy tofu ($6.99)

Supplements: Spicy coleslaw, sesame ginger slaw, lettuce, romaine, onions and peppers, seared kimchi, tomato salsa, corn salad, pickled jalapeno, mozzarella or cheddar.

They have some pre-set combos on the menu that have some interesting ingredients, including a burrito with something called bulgogi mayo. Also, there will be a weekly lottery where you can win a $50 coupon for Bon Chon on John. If any of you happen to eat here today, let us know how your food was in the comments.

Kortako, 80 Nassau St. (btw. John & Fulton), (212) 964-4625
