oxtail and kobacha tacos

Braised Oxtail & Kabocha Tacos

Oxtail and Kabocha soup is a traditional Vietnamese soup that I grew up with. I wanted to take this traditional comfort meal and make it accessible and modern. Here in Southern California - fusion cuisine is very popular. I've seen kim chee quesadillas and carnitas French fries so why not oxtail and kabocha tacos? It's incredibly tender and flavorful. The combination of oxtail and kabocha is very balanced. The beef is rich and savory while the Japanese pumpkin is sweet and tender.
