Publico Taco is not new to the Seoul National University part of town, but this Mexican restaurant is consistently fresh in both taste and style. I urge you to check it out and try it’s delicious offerings. Hopefully the information below will prove useful as you make your inaugural, and perhaps repeated, visit.
To reach Publico Taco, take Line 2 to Nakseongdae Station or Seoul National University Station. Once you arrive, refer to your smartphone ?. This particular location be found via Naver Maps, Kakao Maps, or Google Maps.
In order to reach the restaurant, you will walk a typically busy street. On each side of you will observe one restaurant or cafe after another. This is definitely an area you will want to visit multiple times. Given its proximity to Seoul National University, one of Korea’s prestigious universities that also merits a visit, many of the people you see will likely be students.
This restaurant is quite small, but in a way that affords intimacy to patrons. It is, without a doubt, a nice place to engage in quiet conversation.
The lighting is moderately dim, which afford friends and colleagues a relaxed place to enjoy good food and alcoholic beverages after a long day.
There are a number of Mexican restaurants in Seoul, but this one’s atmosphere makes it my favorite.
As you order, you’ll observe myriad menu choices from this self-proclaimed “better than authentic taco joint. This menu is split between tacos, quesadillas, burrito bowls, chile con carne, nachos, and fries. Of all the options, my favorite is, without question, the Grana Padano Cheese Fries. A few other delicious choices, as pictured below, are their delicious burrito bowls and their vegetarian quesadillas. Having moved to Seoul from Texas, an American state that borders Mexico, I have had the opportunity to try many variations of authentic Mexican food. Publico Taco’s offerings easily measure up.
For vegetarians and vegans: take note of this option. Thankfully, quite a few restaurants and cafes with vegan options have opened in the past few years.
Publico Taco is a fantastic spot to spend an hour or more relaxing with friends, family and/or colleagues and enjoying delicious Mexican food.
Before or after you enjoy your snack and beverage, check out the neighborhood. There are many other hidden gems worth checking out: restaurants, coffee shops, and bars. I look forward to going back.
