“Eric Shin, owner of SEOULSPICE, is pleased to announce the expansion of his healthy Korean comfort food concept with three new locations scheduled to open later this year. Founded in 2016, Shin opened his flagship location in the NoMa neighborhood of Washington, D.C. and expanded with additional locations in Tenleytown and College Park, Maryland, opening the following year. SEOULSPICE offers Korean-style rice bowls, kimbap burritos (Korritos), japchae noodle bowls, and salads showcasing original recipes from the Shin family, some of which have been passed down for generations.

439 7th Street, NW at E Street. Ed. Note: The space next to the now closed Starbucks

The first of SEOULSPICE’s three new locations is scheduled to open in May 2021 at the Westfield Montgomery Mall Food Court (next to Chipotle). Shin has also signed a lease for more than 2,000-square-feet of space at 439 7th Street, NW, 20004, across the street from Jaleo, which is scheduled for completion in July 2021. The design of this location has been reimagined as a response to COVID. Guests can anticipate open stadium seating to give a feeling of freedom along with an updated design that showcases the vibrancy of Korean food and culture.

A third 1,000-square-feet concept, which will serve primarily for carryout and delivery, is also scheduled for October 2021 at the International Place building, located at 1735 N Lynn Street in Arlington, Virginia, 22201. John Gogos of Papadopoulos Properties represented SEOULSPICE in the real estate transactions. “
