Korean Food and Spirit in Southern Utah
I first tried Cupbop at one of the FanX Salt Lake Comic Con events in Salt Lake City. They had a food truck parked out in front of the Salt Palace, the food was tasty, and I was hooked.
Cupbop opened a location in St. George not too long ago and now Cedar City has its own Cupbop location in the Providence Center.
To say I was excited about a Cupbop in Cedar City would be an understatement. I love trying different types of food, and as long as it doesn’t have cilantro or coriander in it, I will probably try it.
I recently tried liver for the first time and that was a textual and after-taste nightmare I do not want to try again. But I wouldn’t have known if I hadn’t tried it. Seriously, how does something that isn’t a sock have the after-taste of a sock?
Anyway, back to the food I do like. According to the founding story section of its website, Junghun Song started Cupbop in Utah with a food truck in 2013 with four main dishes and a variety of special sauces.
Cupbop has locations across Utah, Idaho, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, Oklahoma, and Texas in the United States and one hundred locations in Indonesia.
Not only does Cupbop offer awesome food, but they also give back to the community with their Bopsim Foundation which spreads Korean culture and helps support teachers and students.
Cupbop has also been on Shark Tank and was successful with their presentation.
You can visit the Cupbop location in Cedar City at 1322 South Providence Center Drive.
