April of 2010, Chego became their first sit-down, brick and mortar restaurant. Taking a short break from the streets to chill and cheer from the sidelines, this happy, humble little LA-in-a-rice bowl restaurant full win and the color orange set out to reinvigorate the rice bowl. Slow roasted prime rib with creamed horseradish? Check. Sticky-sweet slabs of Berkshire pork belly over hot rice and fried egg? Done. A jukebox of feelings and L.A. youth piped in through the speakers? It’s been Chego Man approved.
Roy Choi mans the menu, Jose Cervantes GM’s the place, with Jose Pelayo at the ready.
Currently, Chego’s secured its east side location in Chinatown. Carefully tucked inside the tummy of Far East Plaza and stationed next to Dat Vim, the happiest Vietnamese Chinese music shop this side of the city. Validated parking is available.
