Hurry now to Korilla for their soft opening at Third Avenue and St. Marks Place — but don’t tell too many people, because they’re trying to keep it on the DL. The official opening should happen sometime next week (exact date TBD).
At the food-truck fleet’s first brick-and-mortar, you can choose from rice bowls, burritos, and salads with a selection of spicy pork, chicken, beef, tofu, and a wide array of kimchi and toppings. Rice bowls will go for $9, burritos for $8, and salads for $10.
Korilla founder Eddie Song says he’s trying to keep things seasonal. “We want to offer something healthy and delicious at the same time,” he told us.
In keeping with the fun tiger stripes on the facade, artist Terry Galmitz has adorned Korilla’s back wall with a mural of the East Village, complete with iconic spots like McSorley’s, Stage Restaurant, and the community gardens.
