Have you ever had a Korean taco? If not, you are in for a TREAT! Popular in urban areas around the U.S. and Canada, the Korean taco is basically a perfect blending of Mexican and Korean cultures. Typically, the street food involves placing Korean-style fillings (such as bulgogi beef or kimchi) on top of a corn tortilla. Unsurprisingly, this delicacy originated in Los Angeles — a city known for its cultural diversity.
