TAKO is a Korean taco shop at the Stadium/Chinatown Skytrain station across from Rogers Arena on Expo Boulevard. There you will find Mexican food with a Korean twist including Korean-flavoured tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and poutines. For the uninitiated, a Korean taco is a flour tortilla filled with Korean BBQ.
What I Tried
Via foodora, I ordered a spicy pork burrito ($10.45), bulgogi poutine ($9.30), and extra sour cream. The spicy pork burrito was loaded with Kimchi fried rice, corn, cheese and spicy pork. I thought that it had all the right Korean flavours for spicy pork and the meat was reasonably tender. In terms of portions, I thought the proportions of meat, rice, and vegetables were good. The value was reasonable and I was decently filled from it. The only issue was that it arrived lukewarm but such is the nature of food by delivery. I reheated the burrito by microwave and it tasted much better.
The bulgogi poutine was only just OK for me. It didn’t have much of a cheesy element to it. It’s more like bulgogi, mayo and veggie toppings on fries without cheese curds. It was tasty for the first few bites but that was about it. I think the mayo made it a bit too heavy to continue eating. Best to be shared with one other person at least. Despite it being a delivered food item, it wasn’t too soggy which was nice.
Overall Impression of TAKO
The spicy pork burrito had good flavour, portions, and value overall. I would order it again but the bulgogi poutine is something I will pass on. Rating: 3.5/5
