Cartel Taco is a Korean taco food cart that is now located on Dunsmuir and Granville (it was previously on Dunsmuir and Hamilton). They serve beef and pork bulgogi tacos. I love tacos and the Korean flavors intrigued me so I had to try this place. The guys working there are really friendly and nice.
The menu is simple. They have two types of bulgogi style meats to choose from (pork and beef) and they also have two different salsas, a red one and a green one. I went for the 4 tacos ($10) and I got each meat with each salsa. Along with the meat and salsa, the tacos come topped off with some kimchi, onions, and cilantro and a slice of lime on the side.
The tacos were really tasty. I really enjoyed both of the meats so I don’t think I can pick a favorite. Both were really juicy and they had their own unique flavors. The veggie toppings added a nice crunch and a bit of flavor but still allowed you to really taste the flavor of the meat. Both of the salsas were good but I think I preferred the green one slightly more.
The tacos aren’t that big so if you wanted a full lunch I wouldn’t recommend getting anything less than four. These tacos are a little on the pricy side but they tasted great.
