"People go wild for Korean BBQ tacos. We use chicken, roasted sesame tofu and braised short ribs, on a taco with cucumber kimchi (Korean pickled veggies). We serve them with a Strawberry Fuji Apple and Kumquat Salad and also a Wakame (seaweed) Spinach Radish Salad."
—Daniel Wisel, divisional chef, Eurest Dining Services.
“The H3 food truck offers the Thai Beef Taco, which is grilled marinated beef on a flour tortilla topped with sauteed glass noodles and drizzled with wasabi cream. It’s like a noodlebowl and taco fused together with a frangrant, spicy flavor. We slow cook the proteins in our commissary, then assemble fresh on the truck.”
—Tom Barton, campus executive chef, Northeasstern University
“Our free lecture series/cooking class at the hospital, World of Grains, featured a chef demonstrating Korean Tacos on injera (an African bread made from teff, an ancient grain)Injera is great for Korean tacos: it sops up all the flavor from the succulent BBQ pulled pork. We did an Asian slaw, too, with Napa cabbage, apple, carrots, scallions and cilantro.”
