Former Wausau-based food truck BroKogi will take over Dosirak Korean Restaurant in Stevens Point

STEVENS POINT – A new Korean restaurant will open soon in Stevens Point.

BroKogi will hold a grand opening from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday at the former Dosirak Korean Restaurant, 108 Division St.

Sangwoon Kim, 20, and Sangin Kim, 19, opened BroKogi as a Wausau-based food truck in June. When Dosirak Korean Restaurant began preparing for its August closure, the owners reached out to the Kim brothers to see if they might be interested in opening BroKogi there, continuing to offer a Korean menu in the community, Sangwoon said, and the brothers agreed.

Sangwoon said he and his brother never thought they’d own a restaurant, but both had previous experience working at restaurants. He said he became interested in owning a business in college, and that dream and their food industry experience led to the food truck. The two started looking for locations to open a brick-and-mortar restaurant in Wausau when the Dosirak owners reached out to them. Sangwoon said they wanted to continue offering a Korean menu, as there aren’t any other Korean restaurants in central Wisconsin.

When BroKogi opens in Stevens Point, Sangwoon and Sangin will feature a menu that combines their food truck menu with Dosirak’s. Customers can expect options like seafood or kimchi pancakes, Korean fried chicken, bulgogi beef, spicy pork, kimchi fried rice, Korean corndogs and more. Sangwoon said they would eventually like to add a liquor license and offer makgeolli, a Korean rice-based alcoholic drink.

BroKogi will be open from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and from 2 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Sundays. For more information, find BroKogi on Facebook.
