Coma Food Truck

One of my favorite food carts downtown is Coma Food Truck which is located on Homer and West Georgia right beside the Vancouver Library. I love that they are doing Korean/Mexican fusion which is something different and a style of food I have never seen around here. I have been here a couple of times and the guy who takes the orders is super nice and always remembers me. I have tried a variety of things on the menu and they have all been really good.

I have tried both flavors of the Korean Style BBQ Burrito ($6). The burritos come filled with your choice of spicy pork or beef bulgogi, cheese, kimchi, tofu, and some other veggies. The spicy pork is really good, it has a bit of a sweet flavor and a spicy aftertaste. The beef bulgogi had a milder teriyaki style sauce on it. Both flavors of the meat were good but I think i prefer the spicy pork over the beef bulgogi just because it stood out a bit more and had some spice. I’m not normally a big tofu fan but the little bits in the burrito were nice and went well with the other veggies inside. All of the flavors combined so well in the burrito, it was really delicious. These burritos are really big and filling and for only $6 they are a great deal.

The bibimbap ($7) is also good and it’s a healthy, affordable, and quick option for lunch. The bibimbap is a rice bowl topped with different veggies, beef, an egg, and a spicy fermented chili paste sauce. It is presented so beautifully I almost didn’t want to mix it up. I love the mixture of crunchy fresh veggies with the rice and sauce and I like how you get a bit of everything in one big bowl. The bowl is quite large and the perfect size for lunch.

The last item I have tried on the menu is the kimchi quesadilla ($6) which is a grilled tortilla filled with kimchi, tofu, and cheese and topped with a bit of spicy salsa. I know the combination of kimchi and cheese sounds odd but it actually really works, it’s very tasty. I loved the flavor of the kimchi and the gooey cheese was a nice complement. The salsa didn’t really taste like a Mexican salsa it had more of a spicy korean flavor to it, but it was good. They put just enough salsa on top of the quesadilla to give it some flavor but not too much to make it soggy. I liked the quesadilla because it wasn’t like a basic cheese and chicken one you eat at home; I would definitely order it again.

They also have stuffed deep fried seaweed rolls on the menu which I haven’t been able to try yet but they look pretty good. Overall I love Coma Food Truck for its yummy unique food at a good value with friendly service. Whats not to love?

Tip:

They have a discount for customers who bring a reusable plate with them.

Recommendation:

Yes if you like Korean flavors
