Bomb fusion Tacos

I'm a big fan of Korean Tacos. Whenever I can find them, I'm a make a point to get them. Kogi did not disappoint. Because it's a food truck, it can be tough to find a comfortable place to sit and enjoy the fresh food.

Amazing how many flavours you can put in one taco. This place gets very busy so be aware that you have to wait a bit till you can place your order and once again to receive your order. Staff was friendly.

If you want a greasy, falling apart, soggy, breakfast quesadilla that takes 20 mins to make, this should be your stop before flying. If you like Kogi's food normally, like I do, then stay away because this place might change your mind. Hopefully they will take the time and fix this mess of a food stall so it doesn't continue...

We loved the short rib tacos. They are messy, but worth the dirty hands. Great quality, good slaw/kimche crunch, and booming with flavor. This is a LA staple and a must visit for lunch.

The line can get long fast, so your best bet is to be there just before the truck opens for business. They don't have this on the menu, but try the Pacman quesadilla. It has all the meats and cheeses, plus some special sauces on top.

I had heard so much about this Korean Taco Truck I had to try it. It was at the end of our terminal at LAX so it was conveniently located for us. The line was long but moved fairly quickly. I tried the short rib taco and the pork taco. Both were good but the sauce was a bit sweet... More

Absolutely awesome! The line was a bit long, but if you have a few minutes between your flight this is worth your time. The chicken taco was delicious especially with a fan of hot sauce!

I ordered the tofu burrito. I asked how they cooked the tofu the young lady said they grilled it. What they served me was a burrito half cold and half warm and tofu that never saw a grill. It was tasteless. The truck at LAX was slammed so I didn't bother to return the food. I applaud them for thinking... More

I used to love Koji, I'd follow them on Twitter and hunt down the trucks but ever since the last 3 years all of the food has lost its magic touch. It's a mixture of asian and Mexican food. So think tacos with kimchi. The portions are small and they are expensive. I spent close to $12 recently for two... More
