new TaKorean truck

Checked out the TaKorean truck today on their first day. Got there early and got really quick service. Not sure how the rest of the day went. Had one of each of their tacos and liked them quite a bit. Not the greatest, but would certainly visit again.

Here's the relevant excerpt of my review from my blog (you can read the rest at


The chicken taco was solid, though the slaw, crema, and sriracha really dominated the taco. But, honestly, that was fine because it was really tasty. The tofu one with the kimchi slaw also tasted mostly of the spicy slaw, but the tofu itself was also a little sweet and nicely chewy. Between the two, I prefer the tofu one, surprisingly. But either is a good choice. I saved the steak one for last. Having a slightly more assertive flavor, the steak held up to the loud flavors of the slaw and sriracha and was overall my favorite of the three. The steak and chicken were cut into small bite-size pieces which I was very appreciative of, making it really easy to eat. The tacos themselves were generously filled, so I’d even say you’d be fine ordering just two.

And the prices are hard to beat. $2.50 for a single, or three for $7.
