Yes, I'm eating tacos again. I can't help it, they are the nearly perfect food - tasty, portable, and quick. I also like Korean barbecue so when I learned about Kogi BBQ before heading to California in December, I immediately starting following them so I knew where they'd be when I was hungry. Wait, I'm always hungry. Anyway, not quite sure what I'm talking about? Back in late November @kogibbq began to Twitter. What's Twitter? Really?! Follow me @onefoodguy and find out!
Okay, let me start over. Kogi BBQ is a taco truck, a Korean BBQ taco truck, and they use Twitter to broadcast their location in and around the greater Los Angeles area! Actually, they have two trucks and a menu at Alibi Room in Culver City, CA but back in December they only had one truck and I wanted to try their tacos. So I started following them on Twitter and periodically checked Twitterberry to find where they would be. On my last night in Venice I saw they would be parked outside The Brig on Abbot Kinney, just 1 mile from my friends house where I was staying. Score! Kogi tacos were on my late night menu!
Kogi offers four different fillings for their tacos, Korean short ribs - their signature, spicy BBQ chicken, spicy pork, and tofu, and each taco is topped with sesame-chile salsa roja, julienne romaine and cabbage tossed in Korean chili-soy vinaigrette, cilantro-green onion-lime relish, crushed sesame seeds, and sea salt, then garnished with a lime wedge, an orange wedge, and a red radish wedge. I know they sound awesome, and they ARE awesome. I really wish Kogi had a truck in Boston...Kogi are you listening?!
If you want to learn more about Kogi BBQ, follow them on Twitter @kogibbq and if you want to see what's going on at the trucks, check out their photostream on Flickr. Don't have Twitter? Don't care for Flickr? Go to http://www.kogibbq.com, find out where the trucks are, and go get yourself some incredible Korean BBQ tacos! Tell them One Food Guy sent you!
