Here's a killer pop-up for you. Austin's East Side King is planning to take over Toki Underground on January 24. That means Paul Qui, Moto Utsunomiya, and Jorge Luis Hernandez will be doing their own special menu for both lunch and dinner beginning at 11:30 a.m. It's all first come, first serve, too. All the details are here. Here's the menu they'll be serving, courtesy of a press release.
