Korean tacos were on for today. I like when you use the fusion method to bring two or more types of foods together to make something new.
First off, I LOVE tacos. Korean beef and pork dishes also hold a special place as well (lets face it, there is not much I don't like).
I ordered two standard tacos without rice. (I am not a big rice fan as too much bothers me and most places put so much rice in as filler that it takes away from everything else.) As you can see from the photo, there is a lot of cabbage on top of the taco, too much in fact. The nice thing is that, since it is on top most of it will fall off when eating the taco. The other problem I had with this method was that this was just shredded cabbage. A missed opportunity to enhance the other flavors with a light sauce in the cabbage like in other asian dishes.
The pork was spot on. Great marinade that the meat was in, so much so that you really don't need the sauce they give you on the side.
The other disappointment was the Americanization of the taco by putting shredded cheddar on the taco (a lot of it). This cheese is ok for taco bell tacos, where you don't expect to get a great taco, just cheap and quick. There are so many other cheeses which would complement the meat and other ingredients better.
On the second taco I added the side sauce they gave me. This was the mild sauce and combined with the marinade on the meat I can say that it was exceptional. While I stated before that you did not need any sauces for the taco (and you don't), you will be missing out on improving on this small meal by not including it.
Overall, it was not a bad taco, just disappointing. For the money I would have liked to see an enhanced version of this taco with the few items I mentioned.
I will be sure to visit again in the hopes that I find a modified version in the future.
