East Bay streets are home to a wide range of taco carts, but not many stray from the usual menu. When the lengua and tortas no longer do it for you, check out this Korean BBQ truck that offers familiar fare with an Asian twist. The stars of the show are Korean tacos — meat or tofu, crunchy lettuce, Korean chili sauce, and crema. The sweet and spicy mix wonderfully so your tongue dances back and forth between the flavors, guided by charbroiled bits of crispy meat that melt with natural fats and not added oils. Korritos (Korean burritos) mix gooey cheese, meat, rice, and kimchi for a new take on portable meals, but it's the Daniel Burger that takes the prize for the biggest indulgence. With two thick patties that have the crunch and give only obtainable on a grill, cheese, spicy pork, kimchi, lettuce, chili sauce, and mayonnaise (not to mention the pile of salty fries), it's fusion fun on a bun big enough to split with two or three people. Follow the proprietor, Julia Yoon, on Twitter for updates on where she'll be satiating the masses every day.
