I was in Allson this afternoon and decided to sample a few of the divey restaurants there. This is a really humble place but the tacos are outstanding. I tried their spicy pork and sweet bulgogi beef tacos. Both were outstanding. I personally preferred the...More

I was pleasantly surprised by this place. The fusion makes sense, and they start from a solid base of just having pretty good Korean food. The tacos and Mexican additions to Korean favorites make sense. We enjoyed the tacos, Tteokbokki and fried rice. My only...More

Mainly takeout place. We had the tacos, kimchi fries and Korean fried rice, both with tofu rather than meat. A fried egg was atop both the kimchee fries and the rice. The fries are a new take, which also includes cheese and green onions along...More

Who would have thought this hole in the wall Korean Mexican restaurant would be amazing. Savory and tasty. Limited seating. The best in Boston and beyond!

The tacos are flavorful, spicy, and all around perfect. This is not a sit down place. The food is all very good.

I ate here only once and was so impressed with their food. They have some very creative fusion tacos as well as very classical Korean snacks such as Ttokbokki. I highly recommend you try everything!

I came to this place on a whim but I'm glad I did. The Korean Mexican fusion is definitely welcomed in Allston. I ordered two short rib tacos and a bulgogi bowl. Both were incredibly delicious. Be warned, it is a hole in the wall....More

Korean style tacos! Small place with a few seats so it might be hard to find a seat on a busy weekend night, I do recommend ordering take out. Good menu selection of some classic Korean and some "fusion" type dishes. Not in the bad...More
