About Kogi BBQ

The Kogi Truck aka Kogi BBQ aka Kogi aka Kogi Por Vida aka SO damn bomb aka Kojeeeeee.

The crazy little taco truck that used Twitter and started a food revolution in 2008 with an addictive harmony known as the Korean Short Rib Taco.

Started by a motley crew of family members after Mark Manguera contacted Chef Roy Choi about putting short rib in a taco and parking it in front of the clubs late night, Kogi rolled out on November 19th, 2008 at midnight and hasn’t looked back since.

The little truck that could has gone on to feed almost every street from LA to OC to the South Bay to the Valley to the IE to Ventura and Santa Barbara counties to major music festivals, even worldwide.

Kogi now runs 4 trucks, a full catering operation, a Taqueria, and a bar called Alibi Room.  In just under a decade, Kogi has gone on to be an LA institution but continues to evolve and will always pay homage to the fans and the streets that got us here by slanging them delicious tacos, blackjack and kimchi quesadillas.

For Life.

Truck Menu: World Famous Short Rib TacosThis is our signature taco. Double caramelized Korean barbecue short rib, a salsa roja made from Korean and Mexican chillies, our cilantro-onion-lime relish and our chili soy Kogi slaw —all over two, crisply-griddled corn tortillas.
Truck Menu: Spicy Pork TacosSPICY PORK TACOS
Our special blend of pork belly, butt and shoulder is massaged with our sweet and spicy gochujang marinade and dialed back with a lusciously subtle heat.
Truck Menu: Chicken TacosCHICKEN TACOS
We take the juiciest parts of the chicken and marinate them a light ginger-soy marinade before they hit the grill twice to caramelize the way good chicken should.
Truck Menu: Spicy Tofu TacosTOFU TACOS
We give our tofu an extra long soak in some chillies, garlic and citrus before having it char just a while longer on the grill and then we top that with our salsa verde. It’s the kind of vegetarian taco that even carnivores would drool over.
Truck Menu: Calamari TacosCALAMARI TACOS
The newest member of our family. Our calamari swims in a wonderful citrus, soy, and ginger marinade before it dies a quick and glorious death upon our hot planchas. Its lightly charred and tender bits are topped with our sweet and sticky salsa naranja and good helping of onions and lime.
Truck Menu: World Famous Short Rib BurritoBURRITOS
We make our burritos with the same signature meat in our tacos and mix it up with hashbrowns, softly scrambled eggs, shredded cheddar and jack cheese, chopped onions and cilantro and chiffonade romaine and cabbage lettuce tossed in Korean chili-soy vinaigrette. Add a pinch of sea salt, a dash of our sesame-chili salsa roja sauce and a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds.

Truck Menu: Kogi Hot DogKOGI DOG
Blistered, all-beef Hebrew National hot dogs are topped with our Kogi slaw, cilantro onion lime relish, a little bit of cheese, and a touch of sesame mayo, nestled inside a toasted bun.
Truck Menu: Kimchi QuesadillaTHE KIMCHI QUESADILLA
So simple, yet so satisfying. The grandmother of all Kogi quesadillas is filled to the gills with melting jack and cheddar cheeses and caramelized, buttered kimchi. Topped with our classic salsa roja and sesame seed crush – one bite and you’ll know why the original Kogi special was crowned a Kogi classic.
Truck Menu: SlidersSLIDERS
One of the fan favorites. This was the very first special we ever made and people requested it so much we made it a permanent part of our menu. Short rib, sesame mayo, cheese, salsa roja and a cabbage-romaine slaw tossed in a chili soy vinaigrette on toasted buns make this one of the most popular specials ever. Two come per order and we’re flexible in swapping out short rib for any other meat upon request.
Truck Menu: Bluemoon MulitaBLUE MOON MULITA
Our premiere Salsa Azul dish. It’s melted cheese, grilled onions, and chicken sandwiched in between two toasted corn tortillas, topped with Salsa Azul and crushed sesame seeds.
Truck Menu: Blackjack QuesadillaBLACKJACK QUESADILLA
Caramelized onions and spicy pork married together with melting cheddar and jack cheeses. Each side of our massive flour tortillas is grilled until it gets as crispy, tender and pliant as a great Neopolitan pizza before being ladled with citrus-jalapeño-roasted-garlic salsa verde.
Truck Menu: Sweet Chili Chicken QuesadillaSWEET CHILI CHICKEN QUESADILLA
Caramelized onions, chicken and our sweet and spicy salsa naranja join forces with our crisp and chewy flour tortillas generously stuffed with ooey gooey jack and cheddar cheeses. It’s then topped with toasted crushed sesame seeds. Some say that this sticky-sweet savory treasure trumps the Blackjack Quesadilla, though the Blackjack purists may disagree…
Truck Menu: Plant Based Hot DogTHE KOGI PLANT-BASED DOG AKA THE HOME RUN
Double smoked and blistered plant-based Field Roast Signature Stadium Dog topped with our Kogi slaw, cilantro-onion-lime relish, salsas roja, verde and naranja, roasted sesame seeds, smothered with melted dairy free cheese and nestled inside a toasted bun.
