VENTURA, Calif. – May 3, 2017 – PRLog — The Annex, the 16,000-square-
Seoul Sausage, Los Angeles’ cutting-edge Korean BBQ culinary enterprise will make its Ventura County debut at The Annex this fall. The catering company – turned food truck- turned restaurant -rose to small screen fame when co-founders Ted and Yong Kim and Chef Chris Oh won Season Three of The Great Food Truck Race on the Food Network.
Also joining the eclectic line-up at The Annex will be the Spanish-influenced Gasolina Cafe. The moto-themed eatery invites diners to stop in and fuel up with its menu of fresh fare made with seasonal, locally sourced, organic ingredients. The casual breakfast and lunch spot helms from the San Fernando Valley.
Ojai natives Hernan Lopez and Corina Thompson bring their healthy San Diego-based eatery, The Blend Superfood Bar, home to Ventura County with their second location opening at The Annex. At The Blend, guests can enjoy handcrafted smoothies, acai bowls and juices made to order, using only natural and nutrient dense ingredients, without the use of any dairy, sorbet, artificial preservatives, saturated fats or fillers. Sourcing locally is very important to Lopez and Thompson as it allows them to use fresh, quality ingredient while supporting local farmers.
Local favorite, Taqueria el Tapatio, will open its 15th location at The Annex. The fast-casual authentic, family-operated Mexican eatery has grown immensely in its 20 year history, sharing family recipes of traditional plates across California, with locations spanning from Los Angeles to San Francisco.
The Annex was originally created to highlight the region’s homegrown brands, but rising star-entrepreneurs hailing from Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties have set their sights on the trendy public market to expand their brands and reach Ventura County’s enthusiastic consumers.
“We’re thrilled to offer a unique space for an eclectic group of businesses to share their talents and specialties with Ventura County,” said Michael Pynn, general manager of The Collection. “We think visitors will love the expanded shopping and dining experience The Annex will bring to The Collection.”
Also coming to The Annex: Scratch, Ragamuffin Coffee Roasters, Bottle & Pint, Afters Ice Cream, Love Pho, Cherry Hills Market and Sueño Jewelry Studio.
