I never thought about the possibilities of fusing Korean and Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisines, but I now realize that they share some common ground--spicy, tangy flavors and grilled marinated meats. The two came together deliciously at Chi'lantro. I ordered a spicy chicken taco and a beef taco. At first I thought that the tacos were going to rely on the kimchi to make the fusion happen, but the beef was actually Korean marinated BBQ and not fajita beef, which made the taco a fusion success. The chicken was good, but not as memorable.

I got a side of spicy fries. The kimchi aioli was a hit.
