In case you aren’t aware, food trucks are all the rage these days. Even though food trucks are technically mobile, that doesn’t necessarily mean they deliver their food! In comes the Seoul Food Truck! This truck offers up Korean food with a twist – coming in the form of bahn mi sandwiches, tacos, burritos and sliders. The menu is packed with some serious deliciousness, it was incredibly difficult to decide what to order!
Wanting to get a bit of everything on the menu, here’s what I ordered: Kalbi Short Rib Taco, Sweet & Spicy Pork Seoul Bun, Bulgogi Rib-Eye Slider, Portabella Mushrooms Taco, and some Seoul Fries (because why not?)!
And the food truck delivered. The meal came a tiny bit outside the estimated delivery window, which was somewhat disappointing. However, it was delicious. Each dish was packaged separately, but the whole ordeal was a bit messy (especially for a desk lunch!).
Just because they were the most readily available, I dug right into the fries. They were made out of some really nice russett potatoes and had a perfect salty flavor. I really enjoyed the extra SeoulFood Spicy Mayo that they came with. It wasn’t too spicy, but added a nice heat and creaminess as well!
Next came the Sweet & Spicy Pork Seoul Bun and the Bulgogi Rib-Eye Slider. This was a bit less successful. The bun, filled with hoisin sauce and pickled cucumbers, broke in half and the meat was spilling out all over. In the end, I ate it with a fork and knife, and I was happy I did! The meat was super flavorful — more sweet than spicy. The slider was equally flavorful, although a bit easier to eat! The slider was made with a soft brioche bun, topped with spicy kimchi aioli, cucumber, lettuce, spicy mayo and a Pepper Jack cheese. There was less overall heat and sweetness to this bun, but the bulgogi rib-eye was cooked nicely and I love cheese.
I then dug into the two tacos. While a portabella mushrooms taco may sound less exciting, but it was truly delicious! The mushrooms were seasoned really well and had a salty bite. I paired this with low-fat sour cream making each bite deliciously smooth. My favorite piece of this entire meal is what I saved for last – the Kalbi Short Rib Taco! This was the most moist meat that I ate, and came with cilantro lime onions, spicy kimchi aioli, sesame seeds, and lettuce. That combo was superb and it was an awesome way to end the meal. My hands were incredibly messy.
Seoul Food Truck is absolutely worth your order, but have some extra napkins on hand and be ready to get dirty!
