There has been an increasing buzz about the Kimchi Taco Truck (Tuesdays in the Flatiron at 24th and Broadway from 11:30-2:30pm). The concept is the creation of Philip Lee and Chef Youngsun Lee, and it leverages their Korean upbringing here in NYC as well as decades of work in the restaurant field. They take traditional Korean flavors, and often pair them with other cooking styles and formats to come up with totally original creations. They serve ‘tacos’, bowls, ‘cheesesteaks’ and sides, and you will find ingredients from Spiced Pork Tenderloin to Kimchi Yogurt Sauce to Spicy Pulled Chicken to Mozzarella and Parmesan to Queso Blanco and Pico de Gallo. The carb-conscious can get a ‘bowl’ instead of a taco. And for the truly experimental, try the kim-cheesesteak (with cheez whiz and all).

They tell us there will be a new summer menu featuring Ssam (Korean cuisine “wrapped” in leafy vegetables around meat or  pork), which is lighter and better suited towards warmer weather. Rumor is they will also be opening a full restaurant in Prospect Heights as early as Memorial Day.

Here is the full Kimchi Taco Truck menu:

KIMCHI TACO $7 (choose any 3) – served with Asian Pico de Gallo, Fresh Kimchi and Green Onions on Toasted Corn Tortilla

  • GRILLED KOREAN BBQ BEEF – Kimchi Taco’s Signature Marinated Short Rib
