Seoul Taco is a restaurant venture bringing Mexican cuisine to the streets of Seoul, Korea in the form of amazing tacos, burritos, tortas, and fresh salsas! More importantly, launching this restaurant in a culture that embraces new cuisine to the fullest! 

The idea started when Kenneth Park, a California native decided to make a move that would change his life forever. Leaving behind his beloved homeland of great weather and great food, he moved halfway across the world to the country of Korea. And now after two years and much debate of whether he should follow his lifelong dream to open a restaurant or not, he soon realized that this was an opportunity worth chasing after. And just like that, the idea of Seoul Taco came to fruition. The concept is simple: serve fresh, tasty, California style Mexican cuisine to the  people of Seoul! 

The money raised from Kickstarter will be used to purchase a tortilla machine (because frozen tortillas suck and we'll be making ours fresh daily), a brand new website, interior design for the restaurant and some other basic necessities to get the ball rolling. We've already secured a location and have the menu set and ready to go. 

The menu items offered include carne asada tacos and burritos, al pastor, baja style fish tacos, quesadillas, fresh pico de gallo, guacamole, home brewed iced tea and of course, ice-cold beer along with other tasty items. After numerous successful focus groups among friends, foreigners and native Koreans, the response has been overwhelming making us very confident in the success of this restaurant! So we invite you to be a part of Seoul Taco and since we're so close to making this a reality, the excitement is building but we still need your help!

This type of cuisine is going to be the first of it's kind in Korea and we're excited to be taking the lead. Seoul is one of the most dynamic metropolises in the world with over 12 million people in the city alone so there's no shortage of people always wanting to eat out and try new foods from around the world. And although this venture will be overseas, please take a look at the incentives that will cater to the supporters back home. 

So we THANK YOU for taking the time to read about this project and hope that you can contribute today. We'll also be providing video updates constantly so that our supporters can watch the progress of Seoul Taco from back home.

One last THANK YOU to our families, friends, and generous kickstarter members for believing in this venture. 

God Bless...

-Kenny Park-
