Chronicle recently announced a new project coming from the creators of Queens. Clara Lee and Eddo Kim, who own the breakout Korean market in Inner Sunset, are excited to debut their next “business baby” called Hotline. The new restaurant is coming February 2022 to 3560 Taraval St.
Hotline will serve classic junghwa cuisine out of steam pans from which customers can pick sides and entrees to build their own combos. The menu will include dishes such as tang soo yook, deep-fried sweet and sour pork, as well as yoo san seul, a type of vegetable and seafood stir-fry with rice. There will also be japchae, house danmuji, and more.
Junghwa originated in 19th century Korea, when many Chinese immigrants relocated to Incheon. The result was a fusion of cultures in the form of food and became associated with quick-service takeaway similar to what we are used to in the U.S.
Lee and Kim originally debuted Queens in 2019 and quickly became popular for their selection of Korean imports and house made sauces. They even began serving food in the back of the market, so opening a restaurant was an obvious next step.
Hotline is intended as a takeout restaurant, so there will be limited indoor seating. They will also be available for delivery and catering. For updates, follow @hotline_asap on Instagram.
