I have a problem with fusion food. A lot of times the fusion could end up in confusion, identities of each cuisine drowned out, unique ingredients, flavors or cooking techniques indistinguishable.
But I’ve finally seen fusion done right in the Kogi BBQ truck.
The food done by Kogi BBQ Truck is highly inspired by Roy Choi’s roots – Korean who grew up in East LA, where Hispanics dominate the American neighborhood demographic.
Though gourmet at its finest, expect no hoity toity vibe, the food is simple, no frills and in your face (and damn affordable too!) right on the street. Get the punch of Korean spice: fishy, slightly sweet and intensely hot, in Hispanic and American food vessels: corn tortillas, hot dog buns and sesame buns
You line up (lines can get pretty long), order up, wait for your name to be called, pick up your order at the counter and a lot of tissue (for the sauce and the sniffles you may get from the spice) then find a spot where you can scarf down tacos, hot dog sandwiches, quesadillas with legs wide open to avoid any drippage on your shoes or feet.
Oh, don’t forget to order the Kogi BBQ Truck chocolate tres leches (three milk) cupcake, ultra moist gooey chocolatey and milky goodness contrasted by the peanut sugar brittle crunch.
Thanks to our friend, Jam for taking us to there 🙂
