I'm really lucky to live where I live. I don't need to track food trucks on Twitter. They come right to me.
I was excited to finally try the one and only Kogi, the original spiffed-up, non-roach-coach food truck. Chef Roy Choi and his mobile Korean-Mexican cuisine are veritable media darlings, having been featured in Time, Gourmet, Bon Apetit, Food & Wine, and The Wall Street Journal.
Kogi is a new institution. I felt like I was the only one in all of L.A. who hadn't sampled it. I'd heard tales of serpentine lines and hour-long waits for Kogi. Not for me. Again, lucky!
Here's what started the food truck craze -- Korean short rib tacos and Korean spicy pork tacos ($2 each).
I can see how these little babies could draw throngs of fans. Good flavorful stuff, but I still wouldn't Twitter-stalk or wait in a long line for them.
Kogi Dog ($5).
Kogi Sliders ($5).
Easily my favorite of the day. Smoky, yummy, and cute. No shortage of meat.
Just so it's clear, I didn't eat all of this. Mr. Monkey ate most of it!
