Steampunk – what comes to your mind when you hear this name? A clothing line? Antique car dealership? Or maybe a shop that sells unique and eccentric looking trinkets?
Well, maybe at some cities you may be correct, but in Gangnam, it’s the name of a Mexican restaurant!

What attracted us to this restaurant is their good deal on their lunch menu:

We ordered the Dos set. I believe that John alone can actually finish this whole set by himself. There were two soft shell tacos, one burrito cut in half, 2 cheese quesadillas and crunchy nachos. All the ingredients used were fresh and tasty.
Hot gooey cheese quesadilla!
A Mexican burrito is like a Korean kimpap. Both yummy, nonetheless.
So we ordered a torta which is a Mexican burger for KRW9,000.
Rather than having beef/pork patty, the torta uses pulled beef/pork and it makes it all the more savoury and juicy. The onions was a crunchy fresh as it gets and the plump tomato, sweet. The sesame seed bun was light and fluffy, soaking up all the flavours.
Their selection of sauces. Their green salsa is homemade with hints of green apple, chili and lemon.
We got a rainbow slushie as a mini dessert.
In a taco shell (please pardon the pun), we find the food here well made and tasty using fresh ingredients. The lunch menu was quite worth it for the price we are paying, however we wished that the portions were bigger.
Big John’s Rating:-
