Korean Komfort’s brick and mortar location at 3423 Guadalupe Street is currently closed due to nonpayment of rent. The restaurant has been given three days to pay or vacate the premises.

An Eater tipster pointed out that the restaurant has been closed for maintenance since before SXSW. On March 20, this was replaced with a notice to pay or vacate the premises from the property’s landlord, 3423 Holdings LLC. Per a question on Yelp, the owner is “[a]waiting city permits to take care of the issue.”

Korean Komfort started as a food truck at 2512 Rio Grande, which is still in operation. When Zen Japanese Food Fast shuttered its location on Guadalupe street last year, Korean Komfort took over, opening in June 2018. It served an expanded menu from the food truck, with more entrees like deep-fried pork belly burgers.

Eater has reached out to the restaurant for clarification, though the restaurant’s phone appears to be disconnected. Watch this space for updates.
