After years on the road as one of Orlando’s most popular mobile food hotspots, KBBQ is parking their food truck and opening a brick-and-mortar kitchen at Marketplace at Avalon Park.
KBBQ began in 2011 as Korean BBQ Taco Box, one of Orlando’s first food trucks. A beloved and successful venture from the start, KBBQ has been awarded with the following accolades over the years:
- “Best Food Truck in Orlando” 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 by Orlando Sentinel
- “Best New Fusion 2011” by Orlando Weekly Staff
- “Best Korean Food in Orlando” Runner Up 2011 and 2012 by Orlando Sentinel
- “Best Bets” Runner Up 2013 by Orlando Sentinel
Their new location at Marketplace at Avalon Park serves classic Korean and Asian fusion offerings such as their KBBQ Signature Boxes (Bulgogi, Spicy Pork, K-Fried Chicken, Vegetable). A full-sized meal, each box comes with Korean side dishes including ginger dressing salad, Japchae noodles, fried Mandu dumplings, fried cheese rolls, and rice.
The menu also features fan-favorite KBBQ tacos and KBBQ dakgangjeong (popcorn chicken) flavored with your choice of KBBQ sauce (soy garlic, mild or spicy yang-nyum). Other sauces include teriyaki, spicy mayo, gochujang, ssamjang, and white or green sauce.
A family-owned and operated business, KBBQ was run as a food truck for eight years by 20-year Orlando residents from South Korea. Their goal was to pick the most popular South Korean menu items and bring them to the Greater Orlando area. Now they are serving their delicious meals exclusively to hungry visitors at their Avalon Park kitchen.
“We are excited to park our wheels, change our business from a food truck to a restaurant and continue our journey with a permanent location in Marketplace at Avalon Park!”
Located in the Marketplace at Avalon Park food hall, KBBQ Kitchen serves mouth-watering American Korean fusion food that will have you coming back for more.
