Restaurant Review: Seoul Taco
A Korean and Mexican fusion joint that recently opened up on 57th St (by Medici and Noodles), Seoul Taco is a welcome addition to the fairly limited culinary roster in Hyde Park. With a menu items all under $15, it offers a variety of tacos, burritos and quesadillas with a beautiful blend of meat, greens, fried rice, and sauce.
The burritos come with kimchi fried rice and what’s known as Seoul Sauce, which is primarily what differentiates it from your standard burrito. Dining at Seoul Taco definitely transcends your traditional expectations; it tastes good not for it’s combination of Korean and Mexican cuisine, but because it embodies its own unique flavor. I would recommend adding egg to your burrito; the yolk adds a sensationally rich texture to the rice. There’s also an option for cream cheese.
They also have tacos, nachos, quesadillas, and something called gogi & waffles, made with waffle fries, queso, kimchi, and Seoul Sauce.
This is one of the boldest additions in Hyde Park and it’s incredibly good. This fusion is a welcome surprise to any culinary palate, and will keep you satisfied, entertained, and coming back for more.
