Have you heard of Kogi BBQ? It’s this very cool hybrid: Korean Mexican but only in Los Angeles! Dang! I feel gypped here in Boston! Someone get a franchise out here please!
The Yelp reviews are outstanding:
Finally tracked down Kogi when there wasn’t a line around the block. I love GFTs, but not when I am forced to wait an hour to eat. Happily, my husband and I went for a late dinner and were able to walk right up. We got the Kimchi Quesadilla and the Pacman burger. Oh. my. gosh! Seriously? Who knew kinchi and cheese could be so mouth watering. I was blown away by the flavors – totally exceeded my expectations.
I’ve found heaven in many places,
And those have never been disgraces.
Their burritos are the bomb for sure,
And their short ribs are a heartbreak cure.
Everyone should come and see,
how incredible their food can be.
Succulent and tangy I taste,
It has stolen a place in my heart, no food could ever replace.
Your prices have also made me swoon,
This love can only be from a cartoon.
You are a dream come true,
And my desire for you is true blue.!
To locate them, follow them on Twitter. And kudos to them for Outstanding Use of Social Media!
“The Kogi truck is a traveling Los Angeles landmark that serves up Korean Mexican tacos, day and night.
Spicy Pork Tacos, Kimchi Quesadillas and Short Rib Sliders satiate the hungry mouths of Angelenos who crave excellent food on a dime budget. Quality Korean barbecue meets traditional, homemade tortillas and fresh veggies to create a taste that carries the rhythms of LA street culture and exudes the warmth of all that California sun. Under the direction of Chef Roy Choi, Kogi has developed a menu that delivers high-end food at street level prices.
Currently Kogi operates 5 trucks and out of 1 bar. Roaming the streets of LA County are Azul, Verde and Roja, while Naranja and little sister Rosita make the extra trek down to Orange County. Alibi Room in Culver City stays put as the adult hub for all things Kogi.
Most recently the Kogi family has opened up its first sit-down restaurant, Chego, in Palms. LA-in-a-rice bowl meets non-alcoholic local dive bar in this mash-up of 2nd generation Angeleno culture, great food and more-than-reasonable prices.”
Yum! Someone send me a Kogi taco please! I’m starving here!
