It’s last call for Seoul Sausage this weekend in Downtown. The long-running Korean sausage company is pulling up its Little Tokyo stakes and moving on.
Seoul Sausage Little Tokyo first debuted in late summer 2015 along Los Angeles Street, part of a big new development meant to bring upscale condominiums to the edge of Little Tokyo and greater Downtown beyond. The restaurant, which started as a popular food truck, was always casual in its approach to Korean snack foods and drinks, and for a time played well against more serious restaurants nearby like Redbird.
The group also operated, with Chris Oh, a location over on Sawtelle, but that has since morphed into a place called Korean Super. As for Little Tokyo it’s time to move on, with owner brothers Yong and Ted Kim telling Eater that the final evening of service will be Saturday.
That’s not to say customers won’t still see the Seoul name around. The duo has plans to move into the delivery space, with a commissary kitchen near Downtown that will allow for at-home meals (just like what chef Eric Greenspan has been experimenting with). Seoul Sausage could also launch as a line of cook-at-home links, and the company maintains a food hall offshoot up in Ventura County at The Annex as well. But as for getting in for one last in-person drink, the final night is just days away.
