Where can I find Korean Tacos in GTA?

  • 9

we'll go anywhere except Swish by Han. We've been there 3x hoping the food and service would improve. It didn't. Ick.

Any place in the GTA that serves Korean Tacos? I'd never heard of this dish until recently.

  1. I had some Korean tacos in Kensington Market about a month ago, inside the Latin food complex in El Gordo's empanada place at 214 Augusta. This is the same space as Agave y Aguacate. The vendors are always changing there, so I can't be sure it is still there.

    1. bibimbap on eglinton west has them I believe Not sure if they're the ones you're looking for

      1. I'm Korean and I have never heard of Korean tacos. Is it some Korean-Mexican fusion food? Sounds very interesting

          It started in Southern California from food trucks. Article includes slideshow:

        2. I think I posted a thread about Jangbang before asking for feedback but at the time there wasn't much feedback. If you decide to go (I still haven't been) please let us know how it is:

            I tried the Korean tacos at Jang Bang and they were pretty good. You can get a combo with bulgogi beef, shredded pork and BBQ chicken. Also tofu tacos available.

          2. There is a Korean taco place on College just east of Bathurst. I don't know the name and haven't tried it, but if you do try it please report back.

              The place on College is JangBang. We've tried twice and both times they've been sold out of food. Obviously popular but wondering if anyone here has actually tried it?

              1. re: myriam5555

                There are two places for korean tacos: JangBang Bar & Grill located at College and Bathurst, and then there's Banh Mi Boys at Queen and Spadina (however, they're under renovation right now). JangBang is awesome -- taco platter with bulgogi, spicy chicken, and pulled pork (or you can get tofu -- which is AWESOME). Looks like a slightly divey place, but I love the atmosphere. I joke with people that it's a total hipster place

                As for the food - I loved it. Bulgogi tacos were my favourite. Never ordered the kimchi or dumplings though, probably because I know I can eat it at home, and it'd be a lot cheaper.

                Banh Mi Boys is realllly good as well - but they're under renovation right now, and you won't be able to check it out until later.
