Today I had the chance to drop by the Korean BBQ Taco Box for lunch. They just opened up yesterday (shout out to Big Bad Voodoo Lou from Chowhound for the find!) and I was dying to try their goods. I was delighted to find that they have a pretty long list of about 10 items or so available at their food truck.
Located at the northeast corner of Primrose and Colonial Drive right across from Total Wine, the bright yellow RV truck with the sign “Grand Open” and “Korean BBQ Taco Box” was hard to miss. I actually met a friend Chris R. from Yelp here by chance. I ordered their Spicy Pork Taco Box for $5.99, a great deal considering it comes with the taco, a spicy korean Chicken wing, two dumplings, two beef sushi roll fried, and these two rice/beef balls as well as a side salad with dressing. I buy a drink from the nearby Citgo to support them too as they are the landlords for the korean bbq taco truck. They will be stationed there for the time being with no plans of mobile service according to the owners, who recently migrated to Orlando from Virginia.
The spicy pork taco came out quite delicious, spicy with that Korean red paste kick and lovely in the soft tortilla with lettuce and onions. A delightful lunch along with the awesome sides. It would be nice if they start serving mini tacos so we can mix and match or maybe a combo taco box with three different tacos (yes I know i’m just being greedy)
Some things to note:
– Ask for Kimchi ~ its not given automatically
– Cash only! Most of the items range from $5.99 to $6.99 so its pretty affordable
– Parking is easy at the Citgo as there are lots
– There is a table for two
– Buy your drinks at Citgo
– Give them a call about hours, not sure what time they close
Overall, I think this place is going to be a favorite especially among for those late-night drunken cravings. It is definitely a welcome addition to the foodie scene and is great “street food”.
Looks yummy! Gotta give this a try 🙂 I miss street foods.
My wife and I ate there tonight. Absolutely terrific. We shared the Korean Beef Taco box and the Spicy Pork Taco box. Both were great, though if I were going to eat just one, I'd get the beef. The sides that were in the box were very good too. Everything was hot and fresh. There was a huge line, so it has generated a big following rather quickly. We actually saw one of the female servers run out of the truck in the direction of the nearby Winn Dixie, so they were apparently out of something or other. I also love that as a Colonialtown resident, I can just walk there for dinner or lunch. Definitely a new favorite.
