Entertain your guests with DIY Bulgogi taco bar. It’s a fun and delicious way to introduce Korean cuisine!
Who likes Bulgogi? Me! Who likes Tacos? Me! As we are in the season of entertainment, I thought of sharing my Mexican fused easy Korean entertainment idea, namely Bulgogi Taco Bar.
Korean fusion taco is already a widely popular concept so I think no further explanation is necessary. I shared my very first Korean fusion taco idea – ‘Bulgogi Kimchi tacos’ way way back on my blog, which now I think was very basic. 🙂 Seriously, I only used Bulgogi, Kimchi, western style BBQ sauce and honey mustard sauce!
On the contrary, today’s Bulgogi taco bar is more close to true Korean taste. Other than borrowing the idea of using tortillas, everything else is loaded with authentic Korean flavour.
I tried this a couple of times with my family in the last few weeks, and it’s been a big hit. It’s so easy to prepare, and what’s more, it’s such a crowd-pleaser. I particularly loved pairing bulgogi with my spicy cucumber salad and also with Korean radish pickles. They really rock!
If you can’t handle the heat, of course, you can use plain cucumber slices instead. That’s why taco bar is a great idea. You pick and choose what you like to add! 🙂 I hope you like it as much as we do! Let me know what you thought of it.
