Korean Taco

kogi

Korean tacos are a fusion dish popular in California, often as street food, consisting of a Korean-style filling, typically bulgogi (marinated barbecued beef), placed on top of small traditional Mexican corn tortillas. Korean burritos are a similarly themed dish, using larger flour tortillas as a wrap.

Although nearly any savory dish can and has been used as filling for a taco, burrito, or sandwich wrap, and other restaurants have occasionally served dishes they called Korean tacos, the present popularity of the dish is generally traced to the use of Twitter by the proprietors of the Kogi Korean BBQ, a food truck in Los Angeles, to announce their schedule and itinerary.
