Kogi BBQ

If you live in Southern California and you haven’t heard of Kogi BBQ, apparently it’s time to shoot yourself (please don’t). Basically, Kogi BBQ utilizes a classy taco truck and serves up a fusion of Korean BBQ and portable tacos/burrito. Sounds unorthodox, but apparently it’s amazing. My friends over at Loud&Obnoxious recently made the trek out to a random late night location where the Kogi truck was parked, and endured the long lines to get their hands on the hype.

The line was apparently here before the truck even arrived. The owners of the truck were worried about not having enough food, and were warning some customers that they might be in line upwards of 3-4 hours! They were even crazy enough to hand out coupons to certain line-waiters for free tacos, just so they would leave because the line was so long! Amazing?

Want to get the jump on some Korean/Mexican fusion? Keep up on Kogi’s Twitter to find out where they are, grab a friend, and roll out! Thank you to Vince and co. for the coverage and weathering the late night to bring this adventure to the Foodbeast community!
