It seems like every week I’m learning about a new Food Truck coming to DC. And I say the more the merrier! This one also sounds pretty sweet. From a press release:

Korean BBQ Tacos have had great success throughout Southern California over the past couple of years, and are now about to make their grand entrance here on the streets of the nation’s capital. Operating from a newly remodeled truck, TaKorean, a delicious fusion blend of Korean BBQ with a twist of Mexican style, is slated to
open to lunch goers during August throughout the downtown metro area.

All TaKorean recipes are made from scratch using the freshest ingredients available. TaKorean will serve vegetarian and vegan options, along with daily specials. Using social media networking, TaKorean will post information weekly and daily so that customers will be able to follow the truck’s city locations every day. Fans and customers can follow Twitter and Facebook feeds @taKorean and also visit the website (coming soon) for a direct feed on the homepage.

Mike Lenard, President of DC Street Food, Inc., has created a variety of Asian inspired taco combinations and menu items to “consistently provide customers with fresh, interesting, healthy, and delicious tasting food that gives them something to smile about.” A native of Washington D.C., Lenard is determined to provide healthy, well-balanced meals at a reasonable price ($5-$9) to his fellow Washingtonians while also giving back to the community and local environmental causes. TaKorean is pledging 1% of gross sales to local environmental and youth based non-profit organizations.

At TaKorean, one can enjoy a choice of Korean style Bulgogi beef, tangy chicken, or caramelized tofu tacos topped with fresh spicy or mild slaw, cool lime crème, Sriracha Chili sauce, fresh cilantro and sesame seeds on top of warm corn tortillas. Enjoy your meal while listening to some great music at your favorite downtown park bench on your lunch break or late night outside of your favorite place to unwind on weekends. This newest fusion blend has taken over the West Coast in recent years, and is sure to leave an impression on the DC street food scene in the weeks to come!
