Korean BBQ Tacos have had great success throughout the West Coast over the past several years, and have now made their grand entrance here on the streets of the nation’s capital. Opening in August 2010 from a newly remodeled 1985 ford step-van, TaKorean, a delicious fusion blend of Korean BBQ with a twist of Mexican style, is open to lunch goers throughout the downtown DC area. In addition to our food truck, we are opening our first fixed location at the new Union Market in Washington, DC before early-October.
All TaKorean recipes are made from scratch using the freshest ingredients. TaKorean serves fantastic vegetarian and vegan options daily, along with our Korean seasoned meats. Using social media networking, TaKorean posts information daily and weekly so that customers are able to follow the food truck’s city location every day. Fans and customers can follow Twitter and Facebook feeds @taKorean and also visit the website for a direct feed on the homepage.
Mike Lenard, Founder of TaKorean, has created a variety of Asian inspired taco combinations and menu items to “consistently provide customers with fresh, interesting, healthy, and delicious tasting food that gives them something to smile about.” A native of Washington D.C., Lenard is determined to provide healthy, well-balanced meals at a reasonable price to his fellow Washingtonians while also giving back to the community and local environmental causes.
TaKorean pledges 1% of gross sales to local environmental and youth based non-profit organizations. Check out our Community Giving Blog where annually we post about local organizations we’ve supported.
At TaKorean, one can enjoy a choice of Korean style Bulgogi beef, tangy chicken, or caramelized tofu tacos topped with fresh spicy or mild slaw, cool lime crème, Sriracha Chili sauce, fresh cilantro and sesame seeds on top of warm corn tortillas. Enjoy your meal while catching some fresh air at your favorite downtown park bench on your lunch break or at the DC area’s best artisanal market at Union Market. This newest fusion blend has taken over the West Coast in recent years, and has left a big impression on the DC food scene.
