This past Saturday was the second annual Cincinnati Street Food Festival taking place in Walnut Hills. I missed the event last year but there was no way I was going to miss it this year. Turns out we had fantastic weather for the event and all seventeen food vendors seemed to be keeping very busy throughout the afternoon.
There were a small number of trucks that I had tried before, but for the most part the vendors were mostly new to me. The first one I tried of the day was the Red Sesame Korean BBQ taco truck. I had heard of this truck before but had never tried any of their food. The menu was pretty simple offering tacos and quesadillas with either beef, chicken, or tofu.
I decided to try the Korean BBQ taco set with chicken ($6). The presentation is pretty simple, two flour tortillas packed with an abundance of chicken, a handful of romaine lettuce, and topped with a tangy and slightly spicy homemade sauce. The red pepper based sauce was easily my favorite ingredient and others in my group all agreed. The sauce is really good and worth trying on any of their items. If the burrito is available the next time I see the truck, I would probably give that a try instead, as it adds kimchi to the mix giving it a more authentic Korean taste.
