This is me, Papi, here to give you some serious yet seriously fun news.
Life got real at Chego! Our kitchen hit the fan and we have to do some major work. The space has been great to us but all of the quirks finally caught up. And so we met a spork in the road. Either continue or take a moment to repair….we chose to repair. I don’t know how long it will take but we did our best to not let it affect you too much. We went to the lab and came up with some solutions during this transition. If you know what we’ve been doing since ’08 then you know my style – “You get what you get and you don’t get upset” – gotta roll with the punches life gave us right now. I’m serious.
So during this unforeseen transition….we built a Chego Truck!!!
It will be parked at Chego!
It will be open the same hours and days.
It will accept credit cards and online orders.
It will be our motel room as we figure things out.
But most of all it will have the same loving family of cooks and managers.
And the same food (almost).
I don’t have woks on the truck, only a flat top plancha, but I guarantee the quality and flavors won’t change. The classics will stay: Chubby, Tiny’s, Ooey Gooey, Beefy T, Hen House, etc. Beyond that, you gotta be flexible with us. I’m working on bringing the whole menu but it’s gonna take some time. There will be some new surprises, too!
***There is one Curveball though.***
The dining room is closed.
The whole place inside is getting gutted.
So we are moving the tables outside and serving out of a truck.
It’s actually pretty fucking cool.
Come with a sense of humor.
And let’s camp out.
This is in effect NOW.
Let’s hope for a speedy recovery but let’s also have fun with it. Street food for reals. For now, we’re a truck on the side of the building, dealing with real life curve balls and sticking our tongue out at them, and turning lemons into lemonade. Just know that we love you and we put it all on the line to still provide you the food of Chegoman. It’s how we do.
I say all of this on behalf of the team because we know how you get, how we all get when we are hungry. Ha. We are here for you but we got things that happened and now we are ALL on the street…But I’m cooking, so it’s a party!
Thanks for reading and see you at Chego!
