The Miracle on the Han

I am usually not a big fan of fusion food but this place serves fabulous Mexican fusion with a twist of Korean flavors. A must visit when you want something different. Their Kimchi fries and Nacho Mama’s Kalbi are dishes you cannot get anywhere else in the world.

A mix and a half Editors' Note

Vatos Urban Tacos is a Mexican/Korean restaurant ran by two Korean-Americans. A street food experience dedicated to differentiating itself, the restaurant offers an eclectic mix of interesting cuisines. Fusion is a better description actually.

Try the bulgogi tacos with a fusion drinks such as the Makoli Margaritas. Expect to wait during peak house, the place is ultra popular. The bar is highly underrated by most reviewers too, try the spot if for this alone.
