Lo-uh-uh-ving the new Santa Monica office location!!! Why you ask? No, it's not the traffic on the 405 freeway, or the occasional fog that frizzes up my hair...I love it because now food trucks come to ME!! Every day for lunch I can have my pick of pretty much any type of truck cuisine that I want...it's the B E S T!
Today, I didn't even have to get into my car because the godfather of food trucks, Kogi bbq, parked right in front of my office building! So my 7 friends and I headed over to try the Korean-Mexican fusion food from the truck that was 1st in LA to gain the insane popularity that is now the norm around here when it comes to meals on wheels.
They have everything you can expect when it comes to a Mexican joint...just with all the flavors and ingredients that you wouldn't! Spicy Pork Burritos, Sweet Chili Chicken Quesadillas, Blue Moon Mulitas (Mu-what! It's two toasted corn tortillas w/ chicken, grilled onions, and melted cheese).
I heard that the Kogi Sliders w/ short ribs, salsa roja, sesame mayo, cheese, slaw, and chili soy vinaigrette were "To-Die" so I ordered those along with a Short Rib Taco...let's just say after each and every bite of both, I announced to the table, "I love this sooooo much!" (and thanks to all my friends for not telling me to shut the he*# up after I pressed my personal repeat button for the 20th time!)
#1 Can't believe it took me this long to try Kogi
#2 It's insane how much flavor they pack into their dishes...I mean the meat is marinated perfectly, it's like...wait...am I eating Korean food or Mexican food...or...!?
You'll be licking your lips long after you eat at Kogi wishing that you could have just one more bite!
*I hear the Blackjack Quesadilla w/ caramelized onions, spicy pork, cheese, and citrus-jalapeño salsa verde is killer and they always have specials so can't wait till they show up on my doorstep again woohoo!
