It’s a question I’ve been asked countless times since coming up with the concept of Memphis Seoul for the New York City street-festival circuit in 2018.
The answer is easy — I’m from the South, I love Korean cuisine and I wanted to do something different.
The happy result is what I like to call “uniquely familiar.” It’s like everything you’ve ever tasted before and nothing you’ve ever tasted before — all in the same bite.
Traditional soul food is delicious in its own right, of course, but you’ll quickly find when visiting Memphis Seoul that the Korean and Asian ingredients we add just blast the flavor right into the stratosphere.
From our savory Bulgogi Meatloaf to our cheeky Ramen ’N’ Cheese to our zesty Riverboat Fried Chicken, these are flavors you can only find in one place: Memphis Seoul.
And don’t just take my word for it — our thousands of devoted superfans will happily do that work for me.
You have my promise that Memphis Seoul will never serve a “basic” dish just for the sake of having it on the menu. Flavor will always be Priority No. 1 at the home of Southern cookin’ with a Korean kick.
As they say down South, it ain’t braggin' if it’s true. And as soon as you take a bite, you’ll realize our food is The Truth.
Memphis Seoul is a party in your mouth, mane!
