The East Bay’s Korean Taco Truck: Seoul on Wheels

The San Francisco Bay area has several Korean taco trucks roaming the streets seeking to satiate our latent desire for spicy kimchi tacos and Korean BBQ. One of the main players is called Seoul on Wheels.

The Seoul on Wheel’s motto is “Korean mobile goodness.” Menu items include:

Rib Eye BBQ
Chicken BBQ
Spicy Pork BBQ
BBQ rice bowl
Korean BBQ tacos
Daniel Burger (“dbl cheeseburger, spicy pork + kimchee: luv on a bun”)
Kimchi Fried Rice

I found Seoul on Wheels at the Eat Real Food Festival in Oakland, Calif. at Jack London Square. Julia Yoon was serving up a truncated menu of Beef, Chicken, Pork or Tofu Korean tacos and spicy chilled noodles.

We tried the chicken and beef Korean tacos. They were very good. The charcoal grilled beef and chicken BBQ was served on a corn tortilla with chopped romaine lettuce, sliced daikon radish and topped with sour cream and spicy gochujang.

The best part of our visit to Seoul on Wheels (besides trying their food) is an impromptu interview I did with a young man who was trying Korean food for the first time. Check out his reaction to his first bite at 2:03.

Seoul on Wheels has a Twitter account with more than 3,700 followers broadcasting their whereabouts. You can also find them on Facebook.


  1. great video! I have yet to try authentic Korean tacos from a truck…on our little island street food is always homemade…Theresa

  2. Most of the time, my Korean tacos are homemade, too.

  3. There is nothing &quot;authentic&quot; about Korean tacos. Sour cream is near nonexistent here as are corn tortillas. In fact, it&#39;s hard enough to find flour tortillas. I&#39;ve never heard of, seen, or had any sort of variation of a taco in Korea. <br /><br />:/ <br /><br />I wish this were true though. Oh how I wish it were true…

  4. Korean tacos are a Korean-American innovation made by Korean Americans for Americans. <br /><br />There is a &quot;Korean taco truck&quot; in Seoul, though. I can&#39;t remember if Zen Kimchi or Seoul Eats found it but there is one there now.
