Chingu is seeking investment to open a restaurant in Kansas City serving Korean food with inspiration from street foods, Korean bbq, and home cooking.
Our Story

The menu design is based on two Korean food concepts–“pojangmacha” (street food) and “anju” (food paired well with alcohol). The menu at Chingu will offer individual dishes for a quick lunch with a co-worker or friends, and large format dishes meant to be shared by groups over drinks. Menu items include: Dolsot Bibimbap: sizzling mixed rice bowl served in a ceramic bowlKimchi Jjigae: kimchi stew served in a traditional ttukbaegiBossam: braised then steamed pork belly with radish kimchi, sliced garlic, hot peppers, and ssam sauce
Our Ambition

Our bar program will highlight Korean and other Asian beers, liquors and cocktails. We’ll be partnering with well-known mixologists in KC to curate unique cocktails, and we’ll be the only bar in KC with a heavy emphasis on soju (rice liquor, liquor most consumed in the world by volume) and makgeolli (rice wine/beer).
