If you haven’t yet heard – which is unlikely – Los Angelinos are hooked on Kogi: the now legendary, ever-moving Korean-Mexican BBQ taco truck that quickly became a cult favorite for its mouth-watering fusion of Mexican and Korean flavors. Back in 2008 Kogi was the trail-blazing, fusion street food taco tuck that ignited an unstoppable trend on the national (er, global?) food stage. “Kogi set off a flavor bomb that would shake up the foundations of the industry so that street food would never be looked at the same way again.”
With the creative and ground-breaking Chef Roy Choi at the helm, Kogi is still the king of the taco trucks today. Here, tofu is marinated in red chili vinaigrette, pork is spicy, and short ribs are saturated in a red, sesame chili salsa. As is now common practice, every few hours Kogi changes locations, traversing the streets of LA and Twittering its coordinates along the way.
Simply, Kogi BBQ is “tha original muh-f*ckin Korean bbq taco truck.” Now, tweet that.
