Coreanos – Itaewon’s Mexican restaurant with a view
Coreanos Kitchen brings the fusion taco truck Mexican style that’s popular in America to both Apgujung and Itaewon locations. The chef is known for his successful taco trucks in Austin, Texas, and now he’s working that formula to appeal to the tastes of both foreigners and Koreans alike.
The restaurant is on the hill near Noksapyeong Station. They have some of the best views in the area. As you enter from the street, you can sit on the first level, go downstairs to outdoor or indoor seating, or grab some take-out. Overall, it’s a comfortable atmosphere with friendly service.
Additionally, Coreanos also has a decent booze menu. They offer several Mexican and craft beers, margaritas, and other cocktails.
Described as Vatos-esque by some, Coreanos offers similar menu items, yet it adds its own touch. Definitely worth checking out, especially if you feel that Vatos just isn’t worth the crowd.
