Dak & Bop resets after the chef leaves
A popular Korean fried chicken supplier in the Lazybrook and Timbergrove area is changing its menu after its chef leaves, according to a CultureMap report.
Dak & Bop, 1805 W 18th St., lost chef Jordan Economy last week. The economy has left to pursue other opportunities, owner Jason Cho told CultureMap. Deputy Chef Matt Womack was also planning to leave in late October, according to CultureMap.
The staff change means the menu will now incorporate favorites from the Museum Quarter restaurant, such as bao rolls and bulgogi macaroni and cheese, according to the report.
Some contributions from the economy will remain in place at the restaurant, including Brussels sprouts and garlic bread.
