I’ve been going to Chilantro BBQ’s trailer for years now. YEARS. (you can see my original post here: Chilantro BBQ)
I was very exited to hear that they were opening a brick and mortar location. (congrats guys!). Last night would have been too chilly to eat outside but because the brick and mortar exists, we didn’t have to.
What we ordered-
Bulgogi Rice Bowl- lime buttered rice, simmered black beans, garden veggies, fried egg, house made salsa.
The Original Kimchi Fries- your choice of protein, caramelized kimchi, cheddar + monterey jack, onions, cilantro, magic sauce, sesame seeds, sriracha
Tacos- Your choice of protein, lettuce, onions, cilantro, house made salsa, corn tortillas.
Thoughts- The kimchi fries will always win. That’s just how it is. They are THE BEST. I get mine extra spicy and with extra kimchi (& I think this is the best way). With that being said, I really liked my bowl. It FEELS healthier than the fries without the loss of any flavor. I am a texture person and the crispness of the fresh vegetables in the bowl pleases me as well. The bowl comes with a side of salsa/sauce. This was spicy- spicier than Sriracha. You should be aware of that before adding it. I added all of it and it was the right choice. The tacos are good but I’ll probably stick with the bowl and kimchi fries for next time.
The trailer used to have a burrito that I ALWAYS ordered- that wasn’t on the menu at the brick and mortar. You can still get it at the trailer – menu here. That pretty much guarantees that I’ll still be going to the trailer but for those super hot or cold times, I’m happy that the brick and mortar is a success.
