A note about serious food allergies

The goodness of tacos is too large to be contained by one country, or culture, or even continent. We're melding tacos to the best flavors of Korea: Flakey tilapia seasoned with a ginger garlic rub, garnished with a spicy good gochujang mayonnaise slaw, adding fire and crunch. There's no cuisine we won't taco-ize, and we think you'll agree with that foreign policy once tasting the results.
