I think what makes this place stand out is the simplicity of the Fresh ingredients they use. Highly recommended when you are around

Believe me: I am not a tofu lover, but the tofu tacos of the Gusto Taco just made my day: right texture and flavorsome. We even had extra taquitos to enjoy more tofu. The avocados used in the guacamole were clearly of good quality. They bake their own tacos. Orders are made at the counter, and then they will bring... More

From a Texan who enjoys tacos, these are good. I go for the pork. Not to mention the strong margaritas.

Gusto is amazing! The pork taco's are just incredible ... the meat is cooked to absolute perfection and wrapped up in a hand made tortilla topped with fresh and cool ingredients. The mixture of hot and cold is a taste sensation! The chile sauce is a bit too spicy for my midwestern tastebuds, but they are more than happy to... More

I've been going to Gusto for a couple years now, and it's one of my go-to places in the Hongdae/Sangsu area. The food is always of a consistently high quality--I usually get the pork tacos, chicken burritos, or nachos (for two people), depending on how hungry I am--and it certainly is one of the better Mexican-style restaurants in Seoul. I... More

Delicious tacos and margaritas, friendly staff and great location (right next to Sangsu station). 맛있는 타고와 마가리타, 친절한 스텝들. 상수역에서 1분 거리에 위치. After living in Korea for a few months, I really missed eating at Chipotle in the US. Gusto Taco is an excellent alternative.

I have been going to Gusto since it first opened in a little storefront on a sidestreet in the Hongik Uni area. It has grown since then because of the quality of food and the sincere appreciation that the staff has for their patrons. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a good taco in the city.

My favorite place to get Tex-mex in Seoul! The in-house made corn tortilla they make is awesome (they import the corn from the states). Other taco places use cheap flour tortillas and even dumpling wraps. My favorite is the pork tacos and tacquitos. The owner is usually there and very personable. You can't miss him, he's the only white dude... More

I've been coming to Gustos for over two years. It's always a quality experience. Food that tastes like Mexican food from home is hard to find in Seoul, but Gustos does a really good job of it. Friendly staff too.
