Fast Mexican-Asian fusion in Andersonville

Our Review

The fries at Andersonville's Takos Koreanos aren't that special—thin, previously frozen commercial grade shoestrings. But somehow they have the solidity to stand up to a smothering blanket of finely chopped kimchi and pork belly, with melting shredded sharp cheddar, scallions, and gob of cooling sour cream. A glorious mess. They also offer "kalbi barba" fries, a short rib and barbacoa hybrid of slow-braised and shredded beef. Everything else, from chicken to pork to regular kalbi is predictably a bit too sweet, particularly the tacos, built on thin, flimsy corn tortillas and piled with shredded lettuce dressed in a vinaigrette. Sweetness is more balanced by kimchi fried rice in the sizable burritos, and not apparent at all on the bulgogi omelet draped over sesame oil dressed rice. Tacos Koreanos doesn't really leave many hybrids unanswered—they're also Koreanizing quesadillas, banh mi, eggrolls, and guacamole.
