Glad I Tried It.

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... read 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

I was working in Panorama City but decided to make the drive to Pasadena JUST to taste the Korean tacos. I read about Kogi online from a BBC travel report and found the local website which lists daily truck locations. There was indeed a line approaching the truck and it moved oh so slowly which gave me time to view... More

I was able to try the chicken tacos at LAX. The line was long but moved quickly. The tacos were freshly made and tasted wonderful. A little spicy but just enough to keep it enjoyable. Great find in the airport.

Never had a Korean Taco before, a Korean short rib taco to be exact, absolutely hit the spot. So find a truck near you. What a great concept, I have been several times.

There are at least 4 trucks moving around the LA area at any time. North East West South if you like. Use the website http://kogibbq.com/ to find the truck near you. Bear in mind the trucks move every few hours. They all serve roughly the same thing. Korean fillings inside Mexican tacos. All the food is interesting combinations and the... More

The word fusion is so overworked these days that I hesitate to use it here. Let me just say that as Mexicans visiting Los Angeles finding one of the Kogi trucks was a high point of our visit. Not only are the combinations of ingredients interesting and eye-catching, they are delicious. We trekked out to a parking lot somewhere in... More
