While on my way to watch the Mavericks/Laker's game at the Uptown Tavern in Denver, I noticed a bright orange food truck parked in the Steuben's Food Service parking lot. The smell of steak adorned with Korean spices wafted through the air and I could not help but cross 17th Street and investigate the situation. The food truck had New York state plates, and offered only one food item: a prime rib steak bbq burrito, complete with cabbage, rice and a spicy Korean special sauce. I decided to wait until after the game, when the line died down and I was hungrier for this Korean-Mexican fusion bundle.
After ordering a burrito to share with Chad, it took only a minute or two for the burrito to be wrapped up in a foil blanket and passed through the six foot high window, ready to be devoured. One of the coolest aspects of this food truck was that the Korilla guys had placed mirrors over the food prep area so that the customer, standing way below the actual food window, is able to see the assembly of the Korilla burrito.
Although the cabbage was cut in big chunks, making it difficult to eat with finese, the thinly sliced prime rib was delicious. The meat to veggie to rice ratio was right on target, and the Korean spicy sauce left my lips burning and hungry for more. This burrito definitely did not taste like tiger meat.
