K Cafe closed, but burgers to hit streets in food truck

K Café, the Tonawanda home of Korean-inspired Gangnam-style burgers, has closed.

But fans of the bacon-and-beef  burgers, piled high with more beef, egg, kimchi and more, might still be able to get their fix. Kate Li, who owned the restaurant at 564 Niagara Falls Blvd, said she is buying a food truck to take her creations to Buffalo's hungry college students.

Its menu will concentrate on her Korean burgers and fry combinations, as she tries to expand her audience, she said.

"UB students are my core customers, but with a food truck I could serve Buff State and Canisius too, go where the crowd is," Li said. "That's what I'm hoping to do."

She hopes to get rolling by summertime.

"I think my burgers and fries have definitely touched a lot of people's hearts, especially the kids," she said. "I hope to serve them very soon." (Hat tip: Joseph Readl)
