Korean BBQ Taco Box

Korean BBQ Taco Box

Korean BBQ Taco Box is a dynamite food truck I had the pleasure of trying at Truckeroo. I ordered the Beef Bulgogi Rice box. In addition to the thinly sliced, tasty beef and rice were vegetable roll slices, a salad with ginger dressing, and a spicy chicken wing.

When assessing a food truck, I am looking for a tasty heap of food at a good price. Korean BBQ Taco Box achieves that. Ginger dressing on salads is a personal favorite of mine, and it is objectively nice to have something fresh and light to cut the heaviness of steak, rice, and fried chicken. 

The fried chicken wing brought the heat; it was coated with a chili garlic sauce (like this), and is not for the faint of heart. Korean BBQ is often made from a marinade of ginger, scallions, and soy sauce (and can have a pear or apple for sweetness). It's umami, saltiness, and acidity—the heat from the chicken provides a necessary balance, and pairs well with white rice. The rice is a blank canvas that allows the chicken and steak to shine. 

All of this cost ten dollars. You really can't beat it. Check out Korean BBQ Taco Box's Twitter. Find them; eat Korean BBQ.
