last review of La Taco wasn't very exemplary. Here's a quote from the review: "My taco was very tasty, although I don’t think I would call it a taco. It was a veggie wrap. There were onions, lettuce, veggies, cheese and sour cream wrapped in a soft flour tortilla. Very nice, but not quite a taco."
The restaurant owner, Maureen, was a tad upset and I went to talk with her to see what she was doing at the restaurant. She said that she didn't think the review was quite fair since she had many other items on the menu that she felt were much better.
When I went she presented me with a brand new Mexi-Korean concept. You could get moist pulled pork stewed in Korean red chili paste or spicy chicken barbecue with sides of fresh pickles, green chives, sour cream, and tortillas. It was a fusion of Korean tastes, table manners, with Mexican flair. I was intrigued.
Another great dish that she had was her Mexi-Korean Bibimbap. Here you get rice topped with a red bean and ground pork sauce and green chives. It's a great red bean and rice variation.
La Taco still feels a bit raw- it needs some time to get its groove, but it is truly trying to do something new. The menu is creative, the atmosphere is eclectic, and the staff has a bohemian feel.
Directions: Go out Anguk Station Exit 1 and make a right at the first main intersection. Walk straight, make a left when the road veers. La Taco is on the left.
