  Well one of my favorite lunch spots jumped on the Korean taco bandwagon that has had the S. Cal foodies geeked up for the last 6 months.  I thought I should give it a try.Korean tacos are just Korean style meat in a tortilla, topped with julienned romaine lettuce and cabbage slaw, with a sesame, chili vinaigrette.  I had a beef, (short rib), taco.  Good stuff.  The fatty, sweet, savory & salty rib meat worked well in the taco.  I like it.  Has me inspired to try this at home.  It's not going to replace traditional Mexican, but it's certainly an interesting change of pace.





View from the parking lot.  I can't imagine being the paint department guy at Home Depot when these fuckers decide they want to spruce thing up.









View of the mural from my seat.  Keepin' it classy.













The infamous Korean taco.  Made with real Koreans.













Shrimp burrito opened up about to get drenched with salsa & lime.

 Roadside food is the freakin' best.  At least when they're not shut down by the health department.  I'd stab my wife for a decent roach coach in this town.

What sami is referring to by "Korean taco bandwagon" is a taco truck(s) that serves Korean-Mexican "fusion". They've grown immensely popular in SoCal, sometimes commanding 1-hour lines. They primarily use twitter to communicate where the trucks will be at any given time. Sometimes people show up 30 minutes before the truck even gets there. http://kogibbq.com/

Bobby Lupo -  A place just popped up in NY that does Korean Tacos. I had the rib one also. It was pretty good, I'm a fan of the kimchee and pickled veg they put in it and the added Siracha. It's a nice changeup, but it's no Carne Asada

I really hope you wouldn't, mate.

I used to eat off the roach coaches all the time I was roofing, until one time I bit through a taco and several maggots contained therein.

Didn't eat off one since until about a year ago. Got in the groove and was eating off them every day for months until, about 6 months ago, the same shit happened.

Never again. Fucking never.

Cheers

That sounds really good. I've been thinking lately how there need to be some Asian/Latin American fusion places, so hearing this made me happy.

LMAO at the mural. If they wanted to keep things authentic, the chicks should have been 40lbs fatter, shorter and a darker.
