Dos Tacos is probably my favorite burrito/taco restaurant in Seoul. Sure, there are some other good ones such as Vatos, but the cheaper prices at Dos Tacos and the hit-the-spot satisfaction I get from eating at Dos Tacos always keeps me coming back. I've only been to the location in Hyehwa, but I've also heard the Gangnam location is great.
I always get their chips and salsa to split with my boyfriend for 3500 won. The chips have the perfect amount of salt and you get two different salsas with it. If you want, you can get an extra order of chips for 1000 won. My favorite burrito is the go-gi (meat) and avocado burrito (I normally order it with pork). It is 9500 won and is one of the largest burritos I've seen in Seoul! It comes with a Flour tortilla, Cheese, Meat, Mild salsa, Jalapeno, Onion, Avocado, Sour cream, Lettuce, Pico de gallo, and Cilantro. This burrito is a little messy from the sauce, but is perfect in every way. Compared to Vatos, I tend to think this burrito is not as fancy, but it is delicious and just more satisfying. ) This time, my friend got the new burrito bowl for 10,000 won(which he said was good) and the french fries as an appetizer (7900 won). The french fries were hot, although the cheese on top seemed a bit fake. Finally, I ordered a draft lime beer (4000 won) to wash it all down. In addition to the above items, there are also chimichangas, enchiladas, tacos, soft drinks (2000 win with unlimited refills), margaritas, coronitas, nachos, and flautas available.
Directions: From Hyehwa station exit 4, come out and go to the left. Keep walking a while until you get to a big intersection at 대학로 11 길. Turn right, and look for the starbucks across the street and to the left a little. Cross the street, and turn right in front of the Starbucks. It will be a little ways down on the left.
From 성균관 (Sungkyunkwan) bus stop facing toward the big Dunkin Donuts shop, then take the little alley between Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks. It's a little ways down the road on the left.
We're just a couple addicted to great food. We love Anthony Bourdain!
