Downtown Korean food carts

There seems to be some confusion on the board about downtown Korean food carts, maybe it's only me that's confused, so I wanted to start a new thread on it. Here's what I know/think on the topic, but I'd be very interested to hear others' views.

There is one Korean food cart on L St. at 14th (SE corner). There is rarely a line there. I went once for bulgogi and was unimpressed - haven't returned.

There is another cart on the north side of K St. near Vermont. I had their bulgogi once and didn't like it much (but I liked it better than the other one). Today I got a no-meat bi bim bop ($7) and really liked it a lot -- good rice, lots of vegetables and egg. For me it was a good amount of food - not too little or too much. There were a few people ahead of me, but my total wait time was probably about 5 mins. - no more than 10 max.

Are there others?

  1. There's a new (yellow) truck that's been at 12th & F for several weeks serving bulgogi and bibimbop. Went once and liked it.

      I've often heard that the yellow cart is the best, though I've never tried any of them due to the fact that I don't work near there.

      Coincidentally, I was planning on going tomorrow and walking to Lafayette Park to eat. The yellow cart is now always at 12th and F? Or is it at 14th and L? I am so confused...

        I think the Yellow truck (now at 12th and F) is related to the Yellow Cart on L . It remains to be seen if he will be moving month-to-month.
