I'm not against fusion per se, but this place doesn't do it well. It's like Taco Bell mated with a hajiman food truck and Tiger Pop was the offspring. It's basically a giant American kids menu at a mediocre Korean restaurant with a peppy atmosphere to entice you in...then WHAM....you get stuck with a $20 bill for a cartoony looking burrito-spring roll that even my child, the human garbage disposal, won't eat. Don't get me wrong...it sounds interesting and it definitely caters to the kiddos....but it's both expensive and odd....and not in a good way.

Tiger Pop is Korean-Mexican fusion in a fast food setting. You'll have three Korean-inspired meats in either a bowl or wrap with rice, cabbage, and carrots with a chili sauce. There are other things, but this is the main offering.

We tried the steak bowl and the pork wrap, and they were both fairly good. The steak had strong hints of the authentic bulgogi while the pork has a somewhat similar taste to the very traditional pork bulgogi at Chong's Korean Restaurant here in town. The food was good. It wasn't authentic nor was it gourmet, but it did hit the spot and used fusion at a basic level that works (better than going overboard and failing). So why 3 stars? There is nothing wrong with the place or food during my visit. However, it didn't blow me away, and it's not a place I would go out of my way for.

In short, if you're in the area or driving by, it's worth stopping to try Tiger Pop. You will likely be satisfied that you did. And while what they do is unique, I prefer to eat authentic, traditional bulgogi.

If you're looking for a refreshing Korean mix, this is the place. The Korean part of the food is authentic and the mix with Mexican is pretty fun. The price for the quality is good. My family's taste buds are snooty, and we will be back. Yum. Glad we stopped here on a whim!

Delightfully different! The korean burrito was pretty tasty, crunchy fresh veggies and nicely textured sushi rice. The sauces are on the sweet side. Friendly service, it's a nice alternative to burger/taco/chinese routine.

Great, homestyle Korean food. The kogi is delicious, unique in a good way and not too far off from what you would expect. Definitely worth the price and the visit!
