뚱뚱 Samples Rok-Mex

Back in Texas, going hunting for a burrito shop is about as difficult as spotting a Texan who would clearly benefit from not hunting for a burrito shop.

This is a different story when in Seoul. Our search party, led by several Californians who demanded burrito satisfacción, spent a good half-hour locating ‘Dos Tacos’ in the Hongdae barrio, one of the few burrito shops in la ciudad entera.

And there it was: the 불고기 (bulgogi) burrito. 불고기 is one of the most common dishes in Korea. It is well-known for being delicioso 하지만 simple- chopped beef marinated in soy sauce and then stewed until tender.

Stewed meat, sour cream, cheese, lettuce, and rice all wrapped in a burrito? A fission of flavors emanated out of this fusion delight.

I only hope that in the near future I will be able to enjoy kimchi nachos somewhere. How do you like THAT challenge, Korea?
