For those of you who have not been lucky enough to be privy to the deliciousness that is the Kogi BBQ taco truck, the video below is a great primer. Briefly, Kogi BBQ puts the “Korean” in “taco truck” with Korean-inspired tacos and burritos to dish out. If you find the truck, you’ll see hungry masses amass for delicious shortrib, chicken, spicy pork, and (my least favorite) tofu tacos and burritos. In the best use of Twitter that I’ve seen, the truck twitters its anticipated locations, from Venice to Silverlake, every day – how awesome is that! And, in an unexpected reach for taco truck street cred, it’s finding itself running away from the cops every other night or so.
As Kogi has really taken off, be prepared for a wait of at least 20 minutes (or more) – the lines are getting longer by the twitter minute. Kogi offers some tips to deal with the wait.
