Food Truckin': Takorean

Last Friday I decided I was food truckin' for lunch. I headed over to L'Enfant (the new food truck central), and stumbled upon Takorean, a Korean bbq taco food truck. The line was incredibly long, but my heart was set on food truck food and this was a new one for me. Besides, good things have long lines. 

So I wait.

And wait.

I start to smell the tacos and hear the oldies bumpin' from the truck.

I can finally read the menu…

45 minutes later: It's my turn!  

I ordered:
3 tacos for $8
Two Bulgogi Steak Taco: marbles cuts of beef marinated in a sweet and spicy soy based sauce with Spicy Kimchi Slaw (fresh cabbage dressed with a kimchi style sauce)

One Tangy Chicken Taco: chicken pieces marinated in sweet chilli sauce, ginger, and soy with Napa-Romaine Slaw (shredded lettuce and cabbage dressed with a rice vinegar, lime, and sesame oil vinaigrette) 

"The Works" (sriracha sauce, fresh cilantro, Sesame seeds), minus the Lime Crema (I figured it was like sour cream, and I HATE sour cream). 

At first sight I didn't think the tacos looked big enough to satisfy my hunger (boys: you should order the 3/$8 deal), but I was completely full by the time I polished off the second taco. Each taco was served on 3 warm tortillas which helped me keep the taco together while I chowed down. All the tacos were great, although I definitely preferred my Bulgogi Steak Taco with Spicy Kimchi Slaw.  If Takorean swings by your place of work, tell your boss your taking a long lunch. These tacos are worth it.
