Korilla Restaurant Review

: When you see the three-story building with a façade clad entirely in orange and black tiger stripes, you’ve found Korilla, serving up Korean-Mexican mash-up fare, first created in Los Angeles by Kogi Korean BBQ-To-Go. New York’s version, which started out as a food truck, can’t compete with that of L.A., but it’s not bad, either. Burritos and bowls are filled with Korean-seasoned barbecue pork, spicy kimchi and rice (bacon-kimchi or sticky rice). Guests then choose from a number of additional options, including pickled daikon, radish, carrots and pickled cucumbers. Overall, the fare is satisfying (even when the burritos and bowls are padded with too much rice) --- at least until your next trip to L.A.
