If you’re tired of the boring ol’ tacos that you can find in every corner taqueria in Dallas, then it’s time to enjoy an innovative taco creation that has finally made its way to our town! Korean BBQ tacos are making a sweep across the country from L.A. to New York City and Goghee is the first installment available for us Dallas locals. Located a skip away from the Southwestern Medical District in Northwest Dallas, the unique taco stand lets eaters order and enjoy a meal in the fresh air under a umbrella table or take away from the drive-thru. The unique essence fusion will hit the taste-buds with a bang and you will be petitioning the Department of Agriculture for a new food group! Goghee’s tacos are a new food sensation that uses Korean-style marinated meats blended with Mexican-influenced quick favorites that will make you wonder why these two countries have never traded recipes before.

Goghee cannot be missed on LBJ; just look for the bright Goghee sign right off LBJ and the Toll! Goghee’s staff is very helpful with directing customers through the menu since some of the ingredients such as the “goghee”, Korean for “meat”, are a new phenomenon for the Dallas community. Goghee’s “gimchee” is their play on Korea’s most famous import food kimchi. Kimchi is traditionally made with pickled napa cabbage and served as a side dish which Korean families have been perfecting for centuries. Kimchi is a sweet and salty add-on dish packed with tons of nutritional benefits and a punch of red chili pepper. Goghee’s twist on its Motherland’s hottest export adds to the unique flavors that will keep you wanting more trips to the green taco stand! Just don’t be afraid to ask for assistance here; get guidance on a starter it is your first go-around so you know what will best please your palate.

If you’re wondering how to begin a search for the perfect Korean BBQ taco, start with the “goghee”; it’s either beef, chicken, pork, or for something vegetarian, there is a mushroom option. Then you must make the difficult decision of tacos, a giant burrito, a burrito in a bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or if a torta is the route for the day. Everything is made fresh and ready-to-order. Goghee is fast food at its finest! Try the Pork Goghee Burrito filled with meat doused in a sweet and salty marinade and then packed with cilantro, caramelized onions, rice, cabbage, red salsa and cheese all loaded into a giant flour tortilla. If you’re ready for an adventure, then make sure to add “gimchee”; it will take this already soaring meal to even higher levels! If a lighter meal is desired, stick to the Burrito Bowl option with the same delicious ingredients with mounds of lettuce without worrying about counting up the calories a tortilla would add. The dish is accentuated with rice, a sweet homemade salsa rojo, creamy fresca sauce, white onion pico de gallo, chopped with cilantro, off-the-griddle caramelized onions, a heaping of shredded cheese, and then cabbage and romaine slaw drizzled with a Korean vinaigrette. The staff can walk you through the ingredients and omit anything not wanted. Trust LYD when we suggest to keep all these flavors, as it will make for an unforgettable taco experience that will make you want start a UN conference about joining the countries of Mexico and Korea together!!!

Bon appetit, y’all!
