Canton eatery re-opens one year after car crashes into building

 Canton eatery re-opens one year after car crashes into building

K-BBQ re-opened two weeks ago following a one-year closure caused by a car crashing into the side of the building.

The owners of Canton’s K-BBQ Korean Restaurant were forced to cook up some resilience after a car exiting the next-door carwash crashed into the side of its building at 5758 Canton Center Road.

Although some of its loyal customers worried the eatery was doomed to close for good due to the extensive damage created by the incident, K-BBQ re-opened earlier this month following a close-to-one-year renovation project that was slowed by the deliberate permit-securing process.

“We’re excited to be open again,” said Jay Jung, the son of the business’s owners. “Our customers have told us how much they missed our food.

“Some people told us they wondered if we’d ever re-open, but we never thought about closing down. We started looking for contractors to renovate not long after the accident happened. There were some complications, but we’re back in business.”

K-BBQ is not only back in business, it is showcasing an expanded menu, Jung said.

“We’ve added some new items and there will be more coming,” Jung said. “We’re kind of in the soft re-opening stage, so we’re still working on some things. But the quality of our food is as high as it has ever been.”

K-BBQ is family-owned with the Canton location the Jung family’s only restaurant.

“We’d like to expand some day, but the car crashing into the building set us back a little bit,” he said.

Jung said K-BBQ offers authentic Korean food that is Americanized to some extent.

“Our menu is very flexible, too,” he said. “If you like your food spicy, we can make it that way — or we can prepare it with no spicy flavor at all.

“The No. 1 thing I want everyone to know is that we’re open again and looking forward to serving people in Canton and surrounding communities with delicious food.
