Kogi- Korean BBQ Trucks in LA
As soon as I landed in LA this holiday weekend, we checked Twitter, and located the nearest Kogi Korean BBQ Taco truck in Santa Monica this day.
As it was the lunch rush, there was a bit of a line when we pulled up, but the wait was not bad and certainly worth it.
I ordered two tacos, their signature short rib (kalbi) taco and the spicy pork taco. They were served on small corn tortillas with loads of veggies, kimchee and meat. I really liked the use of kalbi style meat in a small tortilla.
I also ordered a kimchee quesadilla. I actually like this even more than the tacos- it was a true clash of Korean and Mexican cuisine as the quesadilla was loaded with both kim chee and cheese.
I also ordered a pair of Koji sliders, which basically was like bulgolgi with cheese served in a slider bun. It was also amazingly good.
