A few years back, Joe Knoblich decided he was tired of "working for the man," so he found himself a food truck in California, drove it back to Colorado and set it up as Chuey Fu's, a Latin-Asian mashup of street tacos that has become a regular at Civic Center Eats and a favorite on the craft brewery circuit. And now, Knoblich is ready for a permanent home and has begun building out a new Chuey Fu's restaurant at 1131 Santa Fe Drive, in a space that was formerly Nate's Crown Liquors.

Knoblich is shooting for an opening date sometime next spring, and if all goes well with the Denver Department of Excise and Licenses, he'll soon have a liquor license in hand to serve adult beverages alongside his roster of fusion tacos, burritos and quesadillas stuffed with Korean beef, chorizo, char shu pork and ancho chicken.

In the mean time, track the Chuey Fu truck on Facebook if you're in need of a fusion fix.
