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!
