Best Tacos

I just moved to Hongdar and my husband and I went here. It's superb. The owner chatted with us and explained how some of the food is cooked. It was so good. A must try!

I'm not a huge fan of Hongdae, but the this place is special. The tacos are to die for and they come out quickly. I've been a few times and it's great every time.

Went all the way here in the rain because a friend had told me how great the tacos were. Hands down best tacos I've ever had, seriously these things were awesome.

Hands down, the best tacos in Korea. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful. Not only were the tacos delicious the Chimichangas are dope. He is extremely humble and detail oriented. The atmosphere and ambiance add to the effect of the food. Will definitely come back here to eat next time I'm in Seoul.

Great little place for Mexican food where you're not reminded by them tinkering (i.e. localizing) with the food that you're in Korea. As good as it gets. Really like the pulled-pork burgers like others have commented. The owner is engaging but in a low-key manner so you never feel that you're HAVE to talk to him upon return visits. Check... More

I've loved Gusto Taco since they were a small one-man storefront. I think they've done a very good job moving into a more upscale and bigger place - and you'll often get a personal thank-you from the owner upon your visits - which only enhances the experience. Although I think they have very good Mexican food, their burger has made... More

I would recommend the pork tacos. Slow cooked for 6 hours a soooo good! The owner was very friendly and accommodating and a native English speaker which is always helpful!

This place was amazing and truly hit the spot! I ordered the Steak Tacos and my wife had the Tofu Tacos. They were both excellent. The owner was friendly, the service was fast, and the food was hot and super tasty! They even hand make their tortillas. Definitely worth the visit if you're craving Mexican.

I've been living around this place for almost 10years now and never have I heard about this place. Definitely not famous around locals... Tacos were okay, couldn't find anything special though.

Hi Hailey I'm the owner of Gusto and I wanted to thank you for your review. We are just a humble, family owned taco joint, it is true. To your question, I think what people like about Gusto is that we put a great deal of care into our food and we work very hard to create a warm atmosphere... More

Boy, does this place live up to its reputation. My wife and I are vegetarian and in searching for a decent option, this spot came up. After 10 days of Korean food, we needed a change. The owner was super nice and recommended we try both the tofu and vegetable tacos. Now, I've eaten my fill of tacos around the... More
