It’s simple, really. Just slow-roast a batch of Kalbi short ribs, mince up some Daikon salsa, add dashes of kimchee remoulade and housemade teriyaki, then fold it in toasted Japanese seaweed. What’s even simpler is visiting Namu’s Farmer’s Market taco cart at the San Francisco Ferry Building...
The tacos are amazing, but if you're looking for something different, order the Okonomiyaki. It’s a crispy and gooey flour pancake spiked with kimchee and market veggies.
"On Saturdays the line always looks long, but actually usually moves pretty quickly, faster than the Hayes Valley Grill and Hog Island lines on either side of it. Though no matter which of those lines you're in, it's worth the wait :)"
This now-famous street cart draws a crowd. The bite-sized tacos are best devoured quickly as the seaweed is as delicate as it is tasty. SF Weekly puts these Korean tacos on its 100-things-to-eat-before-you-die list. Just be sure to bring cash because cards aren’t accepted.
Namu also offers the perfect accompaniment to Korean Tacos: Gamja Fries. Fresh hand-cut potatoes are fried and served with kewpie mayo (a Japanese staple since 1925, it’s like American mayo but with rice vinegar instead of the distilled variety), gochujang (Korean hot pepper paste), green onions and chopped short ribs. Tick another item of the 7x7 Big Eat list, and treat your tastebuds for some seriously scrumptious East/West fusion.
