Coreanos Food Truck Named Best in Texas!!!

The Coreanos Food Truck was named the #1 food truck in Texas and the 8th best food truck in the nation by Smithsonian Magazine! This recognition comes after being named one of the top 10 eateries in Austin by Yelp a few weeks back. Executive Chef Louis Cantu, the leader of the Coreanos Team, is delighted with these accomplishments. "We are honored that we have received this recognition and I give all of the credit to our amazing team," Chef Cantu said. Chef Cantu will also be conducting a cooking lesson on channel 2 in Austin (NBC) tomorrow morning at 8:20 a.m.

According to Smithsonian Magazine, "Coreanos, which translates to “Koreans” in Spanish, serves a cross between Korean barbeque and traditional Mexican dishes. The truck’s tacos and burritos borrow marinated meats, slaws, kimchi and a sesame oil vinaigrette from the Korean palate and onion, cilantro and pico de gallo from the Mexican. Coreanos also sells bacon-wrapped hot dogs and loaded French fries. The Three Wise Fries is a pile of beef short rib, chicken and spicy pork belly, as well as grilled onions, cheese and creamy “el scorcho” sauce, on a bed of papas fritas. Yelp reports that Coreanos was one of Austin’s top 10 eateries of 2011. – MG"
