Trend-O-Meter Says: Korean Tacos Are In (5/21/09)

Tacos filled with Korean-barbecue-style meats, cabbage, bean sprouts, kimchee, and spicy salsa are showing up all over the nation.

Spotted: at new Portland food truck Koi Fusion PDX, filled with spicy bulgogi pork; at LA’s venerable Kogi trucks, packed with chopped-up Korean short ribs and sesame-chile salsa roja (pictured); added to the menu a few weeks ago at New York’s Seoul Station, where you can order them with spicy pork or beef; at John’s Snack and Deli in San Francisco, with sautéed kimchee and kalbi (short rib); and you can make them at home with DIY kimchee and bulgogi.
