This week, we had the opportunity to attend the private launch party for Barrio Coreano, a new taqueria set to open at 642 Bloor West near Euclid. The establishment is owned by chef and entrepreneur Dave Sidhu, the man behind the Playa Cabana restaurants. The menu features a mix of Mexican and Korean-inspired dishes like tacos stuffed with galbi beef, yuzu tuna, and grilled octopus with wasabi salsa. There’s also an eclectic drink list with kimchi sour cocktails and soju sangrias.
Here’s a sneak-peek at the new restaurant.
