Kogi Korean Taco Truck! Wow!!

After reading so much about Kogi Taco Truck, I couldn't wait any longer and we drove tonight all the way from SCV to UCLA area (Landfair & Ophir). WOW!! Totally worth the drive!
Great tacos! Full of great flavors! Tonight's special was Kogi BBQ Pork Hot Dog with Homemade Korean Ketchup, and it was very good! We tried almost everything in their menu. They have chicken, pork and short rib tacos, all were equally delicious.
We also ordered a short rib slider, so good, with very interesting flavors, and very good texture. They also serve a tofu/vegan taco, but we didn't try it.
In their truck everything looked spotless, very shiny, organized and clean. We arrived a little early to the corner were they were to be located, they were not there yet, but there was people already waiting for them, very soon the truck arrived, and the line of customers just kept growing.
Mark, Chef Roy, and everybody else were genuinely friendly, and polite, it was a great experience. Can't wait to go back, and I highly recommend you to try their food.
They have a website, and you can also follow them with twitter, so you know their exact location.

      It is amazing food. We can't stop talking about it here at home. We are already making plans for next weekend. Last night some people were making line again for second rounds of food. They start at around 7:00 PM, at the UCLA location.

    2. Again, more people will be posting about this unique place I presume, it desreves the hype.The chef and owners are passionate food people and make great Korean tacos.I went to a tasting and they were magnificent.

      1. I can't wait to try it. Do you know if it's cash only?

          Yes, I am almost 100% sure that it is cash only.

        2. Parking seems to be a bit difficult at Landfair & Ophir. Any suggestion?

          1. with a wait supposedly of an hour sometimes: is kogi worth my time?
