There is nothing in the Korean taco that is not also covered here in the exact same format. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 19:27, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

The dish is independently notable, and that article was around for three years longer than this one. I can't tell how similar they are, but if material was copied it was from there to here. The convention on Wikipedia is to have articles about forms of cuisine, separate articles about notable dishes, and yet other articles about establishments that serve the cuisine. It's somewhat arbitrary to consider Korean tacos part of a trend in Korean-Mexican cuisine (actually, Korean-Mexican-American street food). Just glancing at the menus of the places involved, and some of the sources, it looks like the instigator, Kogi Korean BBQ, is doing mostly Mexican fusion, but others are adopting that dish as part of Japanese or pan-Asian fusion, or Mexican fusion, e.g. Perhaps the subject of the cuisine article is not notable enough to stand alone as an article apart from its content on tacos and on the establishments involved. If it is notable, and too much detail was imported from a child article, it can be culled. - Wikidemon (talk) 21:42, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Agree with merging. We own a Korean Mexican restaurant and "korean taco" is not the name of any dish, nor do I think it's independently notable - there is no real such thing as [a] korean taco; and korean tacoS are really Korean-Mexican fusion tacos. Korean Taco is likely the name an individual restaurant gave to something. As an example, a "kalbi taco" or "bulgogi taco" would reference the filling. "Korean Taco" is about as descriptive/appropriate as "American Pizza". The cuisine has advanced in the last 19 years far beyond "korean taco" and the original article's content is better left in the larger topic. Also, as the main Korean-Mexican fusion article references several other restaurants, we were trying to include a mention of ours, as we are the first restaurant to expand to China and to a population that doesn't know Koreans or LA or food trucks, which we feel is relevant to the article's content. At the same time we want to be respectful to the community and to the balance of the article. Its not our intention to spam and we are frustrated it keeps getting deleted. Any guidance would be appreciated, I'm relatively new on here.. --Krystjan1 (talk) 10:06, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Is there consensus on this merger, or should the merge tag be removed? The proposal is a year old. Prburley (talk) 19:00, 14 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Oppose The "Korean taco" has enough legs to stand on its own by this time. See, for example this 2015 BBC story. It is arguably the first of modern Korean-Mexican cuisine fusion items. I'd argue for a merger the other way, with "Korean-Mexican fusion" being merged into "Korean taco," but I think they might as well remain as separate articles. Not that each could not use further work and expansion, you understand. Geoff | Who, me? 15:38, 14 March 2017 (UTC)
  • I've removed the merge tag, as there doesn't seem to be consensus on this in the last 2 years. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 00:55, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
