Korean ingredients marry Mexican comfort food at this 75-seat Bloor West room that plays fast and loose with culinary borders. A corn tortilla, for example, is stuffed with bulgogi shrimp, while a K-Mex salad combines Korean cabbage with avocado, corn, and queso fresco in a ginger sesame dressing. The funky space abides by the distressed-chic aesthetic: neon lights, purposefully peeling paint, tabletops made from salvaged bowling lanes, rusting seats that were imported from an Indian cricket stadium. It sounds dingy, but when these elements are polished and combined, the space is quite glam in its own tetanus-tempting way.
