Summary: TaKorean is DC's first and only Korean Taco truck that serves a delicious combination of Korean classic flavors with a Mexican twist. Look for the mobile truck at lunchtime and late night! Or follow them on Twitter.


Truckeroo 2 is going on right now in the Bullpen across from the Navy Yard Metro Station and National's Park. I stopped by to check out some new DC Food Trucks and TaKorean was first on my list. Although when I arrived, they were taking a break, a line soon formed and they opened back up for business. With a friendly greeting, my order was taken and after a couple minutes, the food was ready and fresh. A taco is $3.50 each or get three for $9. I opted to order the day's special of roasted pork along with the bulgogi and chicken (Keith would love to try some too!) with the works. The size and ingredients were very decent. The chicken was tender, however a little bland, and the sriracha sauce was too overpowering. Keith enjoyed the bulgogi steak with kimchi slaw better than the pork. Overall, I enjoyed the taco twist and of all the food trucks, this is one I would order from again.

What I ate:


Tangy Chicken
chicken marinated in sweet chili sauce, ginger and soy
topped with Sriracha sauce, lime crema, fresh cilantro, sesame seeds,
shredded lettuce and cabbage in rice vinegar
all in a corn tortilla

Plus Keith ate:
Bulgogi Steak
thinly sliced ribeye steak marinated in a sweet and spicy soy-based sauce
topped with Sriracha sauce, lime crema, fresh cilantro, sesame seeds,
spicy kimchi slaw all in a corn tortilla

Roasted Pork
shredded and chopped pork marinated in a mild soy-based sauce
topped with Sriracha sauce, lime crema, fresh cilantro, sesame seeds,
spicy kimchi slaw all in a corn tortilla
