Takorea is the name, Sesame Fries is the gold! Yes, you’ve read right, Sesame Fries, my readers. I don’t know how they do it, but I do know they are anything I have ever had, delicious, the perfect balance between sweet & tangy and 100% vegan-friendly! Need I say more?
I mean, just look at them, so inviting and foreign. I don’t know what my life was before them! Speaking from a traveling foodie, these fries are worth any trip! Takorea proudly offers a Vegetarian/Vegan friendly menu for us to indulge in every day. From Takos to Fries, to Burritos and Bimim, this Mexican-Korean fusion is one we can’t miss because they don’t mess around! If you’re into spicy food, this place is for you! The Korean red sauce is absolutely amazing. But, you may need a few glasses of water to cool down! That’s the whole point, right? Although I can’t entirely remember the name, I can confirm that it is 100% Vegan and contains no traces of fish sauce (I read the ingredient list).
The Takos were simple, and I am one for simplicity. I don’t like a lot in my tacos and truth be told, they didn’t need anything else- Lettuce, Cabbage, Onions, and Cilantro tossed in a Soy Sesame Vinaigrette; I’ve enjoyed them both! Up next, the Sesame Fries, oh wait, we’ve already talked about them! Well, here’s another picture for you to drool in, thank me later!
Now for another jewel- the Tofu Burrito, again, the same filling as the takos but this time wrapped in a flour tortilla! I personally loved this tofu burrito. If I may be bold, I like it better than your average chain hype- Chipotle (#sorrynotsorry)! It must be the Korean red sauce! :)
First off, it was very caliente! I enjoyed the Korean-Mexican taste it offered. The rice was cooked to perfection. Almost like how the sushi rice feels and taste like. The tofu was well cooked, and had a bit of a crunch. Everything complimented this burrito. Of course I had to drink of a few glasses of water to turn down the heat (4) but it was well worth it. After all, I couldn’t expect any less from a Korean-Mexican fusion!
Takorea offers weekly specials with a great atmosphere, come have a bite of those fries while you decompress your day away!
