KoMex is Fusion Gone Wild in Las Vegas

As the name suggests, KoMex Fusion is all about mixing ethnic cuisines. Obviously, there’s a Korean component—witness kimchi and bulgogi—and Mexican standards like enchiladas and burritos, along with some cross-breeding of the two at this little strip-mall diner in Las Vegas. Chimichanga with marinated cabbage anyone?

But at KoMex, the boundaries have been further expanded to embrace Chinese (wonton soup) and American cuisine. All this comes together in my Bulgogi fries—with melted mozza, meat, pico de gallo, jalapenos and Korean hot sauce all soaking into a mound of fries. It’s a surprisingly good, filling amalgamation. The substantial order is only $6 and, along with complementary chips, salsa and guacamole, is a substantial lunch.

The owners are in the throes of expanding their boundaries beyond Vegas. Here’s hoping they don’t lose that grunge attitude of experimentation at their flagship shop.

    thanks for the Vegas tips Bill. When we’re using the LV airport to quickly access the deserts of UT/AZ, your restaurant reviews invoked the ghastly thought that we may actually overnight in LV to take in some of your recommended diners. Is ghastly an abbreviation of the word gastronomically? Is ghastly a euphemism for flatulence? Patrick
