After getting word that this weekend I’d be able to try Korean Tacos by Fräulein Kimchi, I rounded up a colleague and her plus one, convincing them to meet me at Chaparro in Kreuzberg for the momentous occasion.
Pictured above is my entrée: Chicken Korean Tacos. Also served were the Chicken Korean Burrito, and the Chicken Korean Quesadilla.
While I like the idea conceptually – and the flavors for mine were good – the experience was not great. Each entrée was 6€ — and the only one that could be remotely called a good value was the Chicken Korean Burrito, which was vaguely substantial. I ate my three tacos in about 6 bites. The rice, as a side, was a bit strange – I assumed I was supposed to top my tacos with it – but there was far too much rice for the smallness of my tacos. The Chipotle salsa was, at least to my mouth, pleasant.
Happily we’d ordered guacamole and chips, and through some accident in the kitchen we got two orders of this – had we not had two orders of the appetizer, I would have left hungry.
Overall, it was a disappointment – I’ll happily try Korean Tacos again, just not made by Fräulein Kimchi.
