Today, the Korean Taco Truck Eat Gogi (@EatGogi) Tweeted a special. The special was "Tweet a pic of the truck and get 2 free tacos!". Since I saw the tweet, I thougth it would be a good opportunity for me to finally check out what a Korean Taco Truck is all about.
Here were my tweeted pictures to qualify me for the 2 tacos:
Yes, I sent out 2 photos and tweets. May as well since I got 2 free tacos. They did this promotion to try to reach 1000 followers on their Twitter account. Doesn't look like they reached it just yet so I wonder if another promotion may be coming up tomorrow?
Anyway, on to the tacos... I tried one of each taco. They have four varieties of tacos on their menu and each taco costs $2. They are, obviously, Korean flavored ingredients: Beef Short Rib (Kalbi), Spicy Pork, Chicken and Tofu. They definitely all tasted somewhat Korean-ish. They were not really spicy; even the Spicy Pork. Each taco is about 2-3 bites worth of taco so four tacos was just right for my lunch.
It does take a little while to get your food because each order is made when placed, but the truck still appears to have quite a following. I was probably at the truck for about 20 minutes and the crowd eventually grew to about 15 people standing around for their lunch. Interestingly, most of them didn't seem to know about the "Tweet a pic" special or maybe they just didn't want the free tacos.
Thanks for the two free tacos to go with my two paid tacos!
