Korean tacos at La Taquiza of all places
La Taquiza near USC recently started offering Korean tacos, and I just tried a couple of their pork tacos. They also offer short ribs but were out of them when I went.
I have to say, these are really good! They're quite different from Kogi. In fact, they're closer to what I imagined "Korean tacos" to be. The emphasis is on the meat with both Mexican and Korean flavors/spices. Like crossing al pastor with spicy Korean bbq. There's also kimchi and a slice of avocado in each taco.
Need to try the short rib tacos soon. $2.50/pork taco, $2.75/short rib taco. A little bit more meat than your average taco.

Very interesting. Looks like Kogi is starting a new trend (potentially), but as you said in a different way. I'll have to try these out the next time I visit my friends in the area. Thanks.
Hi mikeop34, I just tried these yesterday too! I went to La Taquiza for chilaquiles when I saw signs plastered all over the place with the Korean flag on them advertising Korean tacos! So i had to try one.
I only got the short rib taco. Like you said, more meat than average, and I TOTALLY agree that this is what I originally envisioned a korean taco to be like...throw some marinated bbq meats in a tortilla and top it with some kimchi. it's pretty rustic...like something you could make at home. but i actually like this version better than kogi. It's a little pricey though bc w/ tax, the short rib taco ended up almost $3.
