In the Cut

Korean tacos and fried chicken arrive InBoston


Lobster rolls from McDonald's. Clam chowder from Campbell's. A clean-cut "Yankee" shave.

There are certain lines that any self-respecting New Englander won't cross. 
But Korean tacos? We're all for it. 
And what would you name a place where you can find such delicious cross-cultural cuisine? Well, InBoston, of course.
Confused yet? It's not as crazy as it seems. First, they fry some chicken, American-style. Then they fry it again, top it with an insanely tasty blend of spices, and now it's Korean.
Then it goes into a tortilla with cheese and salsa, like in Mexico. That's right around the point when you stop caring where it's from and just savor each crunchy multi-cultural bite.
Further home study — as in a proper take-out box of fried chicken or a rice bowl — is encouraged, unless you can snag one of the handful of seats for a lunch break session that will open your mind to the untapped potential of the entire meats-in-tortillas industry.

But Doritos tacos? We're still not touching those.
