MOGO is the Korean translation for EAT. MOGO is also a food stand on the Asbury Park boardwalk in NJ that sells Korean Fusion Tacos. Its made out of an old shipping container which is pretty cool. A food truck without wheels. I first noticed it last year and unfortunately was never able to order from them. The timing was never right. Then Hurricane Sandy hit and I was nervous that I would never get to eat there. A month or so ago we took a trip to the boardwalk to walk around and I was happy to see people working hard to get MOGO reopened for the summer season! I knew I would be eating their Tofu Taco the next time I was down there no matter what!
My family headed down to Ocean Grove for an early evening beach visit this past Saturday where we swam, dug holes in the sand and found some sea treasures (3 sand dollars!) Then we headed to the Asbury Park boardwalk, which is connected to Ocean Grove, and headed straight to MOGO.
When I first noticed MOGO last year I saw that they offered Tofu Taco’s. I emailed them and they promptly replied assuring me that their tofu taco’s are in fact vegan. My husband and I each ordered 2 of them. The year long wait to finally try them was worth it. The soy glaze on the fried tofu was incredible. My husband could not stop talking about how good the sauce was. I was a big fan of the soy-sesame slaw that topped it off. Every flavor put into this taco was perfect. They weren’t spicy, which was nice. You can add some spicy sauce to it yourself which we did. You can also order that it be topped with kimchi and I’m forgetting what else (!) to spice it up even more.
It was truly the perfect summertime boardwalk food. We will be on vacation in a few weeks in Ocean Grove, the next town over, and we will definitely be hitting up MOGO a few times while we are there. Love you MOGO!
