Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This taco shop’s similarities to Kogi—the L.A. food truck that spawned the Korean taco craze—may not work in Del Seoul’s favor when the two are inevitably compared. But judged on their own merit, these Mexico-by-way-of-Korea tacos are pretty tasty: soft corn tortillas piled with soy-marinated beef short rib, grilled pork carrying the earthy flavors of gochujang or plump shrimp rolled in panko and fried. Solid bibimbap ($8) is a vibrant value, and the kimchi fries (cheese fries topped with pork belly and kimchi “salsa”) are one thing on the menu truly charting new territory.
