Belly Shack (1912 N. Western Ave.), another counter-service Asian BYO. “It’ll be mainly soups, sandwiches, salads, and some sort soft-serve ice cream or yogurt,” says Kim, who promises no overlap with Urbanbelly’s noodles and dumplings. “I want to do Asian- and Latin-inspired. Instead of french fries, yuca fries with a chimichurri dressing or some kind of chimichurri sauce. And maybe a kimchi hot dog.” Prices will top out around $10, and Kim is percolating ideas for the space: “We’re still getting inspiration from Los Angeles and street-inspired graffiti and things like that.” ETA: This fall."> Edit Module
