On Friday, Larry and I zoomed over to Palms to try out Chef Roy Choi's (of Kogi taco fame) new restaurant called Chego. The restaurant is in a mini-mall at the corner of Overland and Rose. I'd read about Chego awhile back. For some reason, I thought that it had opened a couple of weeks ago. Noooooo...the restaurant opened just this past Wednesday! Whoa! We experienced a short line at the door, but when we left, the line snaked out into the parking lot!
So, you stand in line, order, then try to find a table and wait for your order to be served. Luckily, we saw a table-full of people leaving, so we snagged their place. Later, we ended up sharing our table with another hungry couple who were also first-timers at Chego.
The food was great! There are only a few choices on the menu, which makes ordering rather easy. We shared an order of the charred asparagus with blueberry habanero salsa, garlic, chillies, parmesan and lemon. Larry ordered Tiny’s Prime Rib Rice Bowl, which is chili-rubbed beef, with fried egg, water spinach, creamed horseradish and fried shallots. I ordered One Chubby Pork Belly Bowl, which is kochujang-lacquered and glazed, with fried egg, and spinach. All of the dishes were delicious. The pork and prime-rib were particularly succulent. My taste buds and stomach aren't what they used to be in my youth, so everything was a bit spicy, but still delicious. The rice and fried egg helped to cool things down.

Everything is served in easy-travel biodegradable cardboard bowls and trays. I would definitely stop here and pick up dinner to go.
Chef Roy has done it again! The Kogi tacos are winners and his rice bowls are fantastic!Chego
