Alexander the Great conquered the world by his 20s, but these days most younger guys are happy to become Alex the Pretty Good at Beer Pong, But My Real Game's Quarters. Now, a ridiculously young dude's out to conquer your stomach, with Chi'Lantro BBQ
Chi's a flaming yellow & orange nomadic food trailer serving Mexican-Korean fusion dreamed up by a precociously successful Korean-American who started his own coffee shop at 21, quickly became a player in the food supply biz, and now hopes to become the Nathan Arizona of the mobile grub-game.
Their go-to offerings are $2 tacos with a choice of spicy chicken/pork, beef, or tofu, topped with salsa, julienne lettuce in Korean chili soy vinaigrette, cilantro, green onion, and roasted sesame seeds, plus optional kimchi -- a garnish whose history stretches back 3000 years, even before Jesus invented Miracle Whip.
For a heartier munch they've also got slightly more expensive (but still super-cheap) burritos with the aforementioned toppings plus cilantro lime rice and egg; meat-stuffed quesadillas with caramelized kimchi and cheddar/Jack; and Korean style bulgogi burgers of ribeye or pork loin -- Seoul food that'll put an Incheon your belly.
Chi'Lantro doesn't stay in one place for too long, so watch their Twitter feed for the latest whereabouts, that is if you're not too busy conquering Beirut.
