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, a bar called Alibi Room, and a sister restaurant called Chego!, which has done for rice bowls what Kogi did for tacos.
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.
