Scotland’s rising cultural hub of Dundee will soon take another cuisine under it’s belt; Korean Barbeque.

After a long wait, ‘Chuseok’ is set to open its doors on Reform Street this summer, next to Project Pie.

The restaurant, originally pitched for a February reveal, is the brainchild of Jason Haxton and Ryan Beattie. Beattie tells The Telegraph, “I lived in Korea for a few years, teaching English, but it was on a trip last year that the idea really grabbed me”.

According to earlier reports, the restaurant was to be named Haxton and Beattie, for the owners, but has since been renamed to better reflect the Korean cuisine.

‘Chuseok’ will be the first Korean barbeque restaurant in Scotland, with only a handful of Korean restaurants in the likes of Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The exact date has yet to be revealed, but if the restaurant follows its Korean name, we may expect an August arrival.
