"Johnny & Wesley go to Kogi Tacos"

I've been back to LA for only two days and I was hit with the KOGI virus.  Yes that's right the Kogi Virus.  It's the uncontrollable urge to squeeze a mouth watering korean taco into your mouth without feeling quilty the next morning.  Yes, I did say Korean Tacos.

It's the latest phenomenon to come out of LA since Boiling Crab and Pinkberry. It's simply korean bbq wrapped in a corn tortilla. Simply GENIUS!!!!

Kogi only sells their product out of a lunch truck and they go to various locations around So Cal on different times.  You can go onto their website and check it out.

I remember reading about it from Eric Nakamura's blog when I was still in HK but I didn't think it was catching on so fast. Here's an example of what it looked like when Kogi made their first appearance in Rosemead, Ca.

WTF!!!!!! Looks like a line for a club!

Unfortunately, by the time we got there it was sold out. We immediately found out that the truck was headed to Venice Beach at 10 pm so we decided to make it a TACO TRIP! Can somebody say "Harold and Kumar?" There's no stopping us now!!

In the meantime....That is what I call a pitcher of beer!!!

Vernice Beach, Ca. 10:00pm (Ever noticed that people in front of the line are always happier?)

10:05 pm

10:06 pm

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED........

So how did it taste??  You gotta find out for yourself!

BTW...kudos to the friendly staff that hooked us up with a free taco once they heard that we came all the way from Rosemead.  That's what you call service.

How fun is that?! They ought to put GPS on the truck and link it to their website so people always know where the truck is =D I'm making my annual pilgrimage to LA in May. Adding "track down Kogi taco truck" to my to do list ;)
