Popular virtual/ghost kitchen, Doshibox Korean Kitchen (Instagram), will be leaving behind its days of online orders-only and opening a new brick-and-mortar restaurant this summer in Winter Park.

Owned and operated by Omei Restaurant Group, we first wrote about the concept back in January 2021, when it was the first concept to open in the group’s Collab Kitchen space in Curry Ford West – a space that houses a number of ghost kitchen concepts that were available for online purposes only.

Doshi specializes in build-your-own rice and noodle bowls, appetizers, and doshirak boxes which feature a protein, like beef bulgogi, braised tofu, and Korean fried chicken accompanied by a revolving selection of sides or banchan.

Doshi will be moving into a 2,200 SF storefront at 1040 Orlando Avenue [GMap], in a space that was previously occupied by Cafe Rio Mexican Grill, in the Whole Foods Plaza near Maitland. They plan to roll out the restaurant in phases, with the first being a six-seat chef’s table with a 12-course tasting menu. Next will be an expanded 30-seat dining room, and then finally activating the outdoor patio, which will offer a lower-priced tier of the tasting menu, which at this point will be changing on a regular, if not daily basis. Yes, they will have soju.
