Venue Info

You may not think twice about dining at a convenience store, but in the case of Midtown’s Kwik Chek, you’d be doing yourself a disservice. Tucked away in the back of the store, beyond the shelves of potato chips, lottery tickets, and energy drinks, is a deli counter serving up some of Memphis’ favorite lunches. On offer are Mediterranean- and Korean-style deli specialty items like sandwiches, gyros, falafel, and the famous bi bim bap rice. The signature rice dish is served with your choice of chicken, beef, or tofu, piled high with chopped cucumbers, carrots, and bean sprouts, topped with a fried egg, and drizzled with spicy Korean hot sauce. Try it in burger form -- same rice for the patty, same accoutrements, with the addition of cheese, and served on a bun.
