Pineapple Dak Bulgogi Tacos (Korean Spicy Pineapple BBQ Chicken Tacos)

If you guessed that the first thing that I would use my new pineapple dak bulgogi in was tacos then you were right! The thing that started me down this road of Korean/Mexican fusion food was hearing about the Kogi taco trucks in California that serve up fusion food with the most famous being their tacos. Not being able to wait for the chance that I might visit California to sample the Kogi tacos I decided to try to recreate them myself and I enjoyed the results so much that I have been experimenting with Korean/Mexican fusion flavours since. With my new pineapple dak bulgogi in hand I could not resist trying it out in some tacos along with some spicy Korean style salsa roja, some fresh onion and cilantro relish and some tasty shredded romaine lettuce in a Korean sesame vinaigrette that are described as being used in the Kogi tacos. The pineapple version of the tacos were even better that the original with the sweet, tangy and juicy pineapple melding perfectly with the spicy Korean and Mexican flavours! Once again I am very pleased with how well adding fruit to a savoury dish can work!

Pineapple in a spicy Korean dish! That sounds pretty good, actually!

Monica said...

So I recently went crazy at the Korean supermarket - Kimchi, chili paste, the works. Now I'm kind of stumped as to what to do with it. I never really seem to be in "the mood" for Korean, but I always love Mexican. I think I need to try this fusion approach, perhaps starting with the salsa roja.

Jenn said...

Awesome!!! I still need to try making the original bulgogi first. Tacos do sound good for a late night snack right now.

Que ricos tacos. Un saludo

Joanne said...

Haha I totally knew it! I'm betting on a quesadilla and/or a grilled cheese and/or an omelet next.

I think Joanne said it best. We were all expecting a quesadilla/grilled cheese/omelet. Which I think would be better if you listed those recipe ideas with the initial recipe instead of a full separate post dedicated to it. Slightly monotonous?

The Short (dis)Order Cook said...

Whoa. That's quite a fusion. I thought I was being creative when I put mint in my pork tacos!

I'd travel to California just to try those famous Kogi korean tacos! I've read the chef's story and it's quite inspirational. He sounds like a cool dude.

Thanks for the recipe; it's a helpful taste with me being halfways across the world!
