En Hakkore on Damen is one of my favorite food spots in Wicker Park. There’s actually two locations, with another one on Milwaukee. That’s where I got this sushi burrito one time:
Usually I when I stop into the one on Damen, I order the sashimi-bap because it’s so fresh and good and like squirting spicy red pepper sauce and salty soy sauce on each bite:
Last night I had tacos on the brain and set out wandering on foot through my taco-rich neighborhood. I was wandering aimlessly down Oakley when I suddenly remembered having a spicy pork taco at En Hakkore – one random day after a haircut – that rocked my tastebuds. I took a left on Homer and a right on Damen. It was a nice night for walking in Chicago. En Hakkore’s front door was propped open, beckoning the hungry. I decided to try Korean BBQ beef tacos, and boy I was happy I did.
Sorry, the picture is a little blurry. I was frenzied, eating the other taco with my right hand while I snapped a pic with my left. I’ll put this taco up against any other tacos. It ranks with the best. Not just fusion tacos, all tacos. It’s a masterpiece.
