Serving a delicious and innovative Korean-Mexican food mash up, TAqueria KOreano (TAKO) has officially opened up on the edge of Chinatown at 601 Expo Boulevard.
Brought to life by the same team behind UYU Ice Cream, Tsuki Sushi Bar, Taishoken, and the recently opened Men-no Kura Ramen on Robson Street, TAKO is putting a Korean spin on Mexican street food.
On the menu customers will find tacos stuffed with barbecue short rib, along with spicy pork belly and deep fried chicken.
There are also toasty quesadillas (filled with pan-fried kimchi and bulgogi), overstuffed burritos (hello kimchi fried rice), rice cake skewers, a kimchi topped poutine, and a Bibimbap bowl with assorted veg, a soft boiled egg, and choice of meat.
On the drink front, there is cold brew coffee from Vancouver’s own 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters, which is offered alongside a few sodas and a variety of beers.
TAKO customers are able to grab their food to-go, or pull up a stool to enjoy this bright space designed by Leckie Studio. TAKO is open from 11 am to 10 pm Sunday to Thursday and 11 am to 11 pm Friday and Saturday.
Address: 601 Expo Boulevard, Vancouver
