kogi







Friday night, just finished dinner with friends at AK on Abbot Kinney and there, parked in front of the Brig, glowing like a beacon of the promised land, is Kogi. JUST finished dinner, as in stepping out of the restaurant and into line behind a taco truck. We had no choice.

For non-LA residents, Kogi is a Korean taco truck that roams the streets of LA declaring its whereabouts though it's Twitter feed. Which means these tacos can be elusive, especially if you're not on Twitter. Delicious culinary delights I say, that as it turns out are perfectly sized for a post dinner snack. Spicy kimchi topped dessert, if you will.

If you live here, you need to eat these.

i saw these guys outside of the brig the other night and i was definitely intrigued. next time i will have to get in line.

it was very surreal for some reason. a big line outside of a taco truck that was korean outside of a bar on a tuesday. like people knew it was going to be there. now i know why.

Um that is the most amazing thing I have ever heard of. A treasure hunt, with tacos at the end. Love it.

So jealous! I've been wanting to try the tacos from the Kogi truck!! How was AK? I love the decor, but haven't tried the food yet.
