LocoL, the fast food concept that chefs Daniel Patterson and Roy Choi hope will change the world, is opening its doors in Oakland next week, on Wednesday, May 25.
The first location, which was originally intended for the Tenderloin, is taking over Patterson's former Plum space on Broadway. It's the second location overall for the growing chain, following in the footsteps of the groundbreaking first location in LA's Watts neighborhood, which opened in January; East Oakland and San Francisco restaurants will follow.
LocoL's mission is ambitious, aiming to bring healthy and sustainable fast food to its communities, while offering jobs and training to underserved individuals. The menu is comprised of items like $5 burgers and fried chicken sandwiches, $7 noodle bowls, and $2 sides like corn chips, messy greens and rice.
Stay tuned for a look inside, and more opening coverage.
