Celebrity chef Roy Choi is best known for his Kogi Korean taco trucks. He met Daniel Patterson, who is restauranteur of the Bay Area restaurant named Coi. The two of them teamed up to open a new fast food concept called LocoL. The first restaurant is in the Watts district of Los Angeles, now known as South L.A. It opened for business with lots of fanfare back in January. LocoL serves comfort food such as fried chicken, burgers and chili at reasonable prices, $1-$6. Its motto is “Fast food made with wholesome ingredients.” Choi and Patterson are planning to expand into several cities such as Compton, Oakland, Newark, Ferguson, Englewood and West Atlanta. A new Detroit location is expected to open sometime in 2017, according to a Twitter post we found. Where it will open within the Motor City has not yet been decided.
Visit the new LocoL restaurant at 1950 E 103rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90002. Click here to read their menu. Hours are 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. everyday. For more information, visit their website at www.welocol.com.
