Laidback Gourmet: Mogo Korean Fusion Taco

Welcome back to the Laidback Gourmet. Summer is coming to a close so I decided to hop into Ed Force One and take a trip to the sunny beaches of Asbury Park, NJ so I could hit the surf, and even better, spend some time playing pinball at Silverball Pinball Museum. You know that place, I’ve reviewed it already! If you don’t remember, check it out! Anyway, midway through the day I started getting hungry so I went in search for something to eat. There’s really no shortage of food to choose from but one place in particular caught my eye:

Live! On Location! Well, I was live there at the time of this picture! (dhlee)

Mogo Korean Fusion Tacos? What on earth could that be about? So I bellied up to the bar, so to speak, and took a look. Apaprently this place’s gimmick is to serve Korean stye/flavored food Mexican Taco style. The idea intrigued me so I took a look at the menu:

Hendrick would be like, “Excuse me while I kiss Dak Gui”

They all sounded interesting but I decided to try the Korean beef, Bulgogi. I’m pretty sure that Bulgogi is the guy who played Dracula, but nonetheless the taco sounded good. They suggested we order in Korean so I walked right up and asked for one “Caution Hot Plate.” They were clearly not fans of my blog because they didn’t get the joke. After explaining it to them I’m sure they’re hardcore fans now. They handed me my taco and called me Geseki which I’m sure means honorable president of Edmerica.

It’s like a United Nations in the palm of my hand!

The taco smelled pretty darned good and while there’s a lot of stuff on it, it certainly is plesant on the eyes, what with all the various bright colors. They gave me a wedge of lime which I promptly threw at a seagull because what does lime have to do with Dracula tacos?

Finally I took a taste and… it was alright. It wasn’t bad, it wasn’t great, it was ok. There wasn’t a lot of meat on there and the flavor of the pico de gallo (Which i think is a Japanese logic puzzle), over powered it. The beef you could taste however was nicely seasoned and did have an “Eastern” flavor to it. And hey, East meets Southwest? My wacky compass points north for that! Final Score:

It was interesting enough I’d be happy to try another one next time I’m there, but I wouldn’t make it the reason for my trip. Well that goes without saying, Silverball is the reason for my trip. Speaking of, check out who got high score:

Insert “You’re the Best Around” here.
