Takorea now open for dinner

Posted By on Sat, Oct 8, 2011 at 7:14 PM

Four of us headed to Takorea in Midtown Friday night. It was the second night the restaurant has been open for dinner, although it's been serving lunch for a few weeks.

The gimmick here is hybridizing Korean and Mexican food. The new restaurant is connected to Hankook Taqueria and the Yumbii food truck. Beside the trendy cuisine, the restaurant will also appeal to anyone wanting a cheap meal. I mean, really cheap — like food-truck cheap.

The building has not been kind to earlier tenants — the last was Abrigo — but the low prices and festive bar might change that.

Our food was mainly good. I wasn't surprised to find the tacos better than the bibimbap and the soba noodles. The plate of three versions of kimchi hit the spot and so did the dumplings and sesame fries. But the best part of our meal was dessert — churro bread pudding and a gigantic sundae (photo) whose peanut butter, ice cream and bananas pay homage to Elvis Presley.

I'll have more to say in "Grazing" next week.
