When you think of tacos, you probably think of delicious Mexican food! But when you head to Far East Taco, you will get an amazing fusion of Korean flavours into the classic taco dish! Think kimichi and bulgogi but inside a taco! Do I have you drooling already?
Back in 2012, Far East Taco started at the CNE. If you are not from Toronto, the CNE (aka Canadian National Exhibition) is one of the most anticipated summer destination for Torontoians. It is only open for 18 days before summer is over (right up to Labour day in September). And it is full of rides, carnivore games and in the last few years, they have really been stepping up their food game with wacky carnivore eats like deep fried mars bars to amazing food like the dishes you will find at Far East Taco.
Karen Cho, the owner of Far East Taco have been thinking about opening up a location outside of the CNE for many years now. But it was only recently she found the perfect spot in Oakville. Nestled in a busy plaza, you can now have delicious Korean inspired baos, tacos, fries and rice bowls all year round! Oakville is very lucky to have such an amazing new restaurant!
Karen is so dedicated to her quality of food and it really shows in the food she serves her customers. She marinates everything in house and even makes her very own kimchi. If you have tried kimchi in other restaurants, you might of noticed that it was super sour which is not for everyone. But Karen makes her own kimchi and actually has her very own kimchi fridge that is climate controlled. This keeps the kimchi from fermenting further which eliminates that sour flavour and honestly makes the best kimchi I have ever tasted!
