Korean tacos served by a fleet of trucks?!  A... CHAIN of trucks in you will.

Pfft.  I only eat real Korean tacos made by a orphaned Mexican girl raised in a North Korean prison camp in the most authentic part of Pyongyang.  I'd tell you where to get them, but you wouldn't understand them.  They would blow away your whole whitebread, corporate, Korean taco truck paradigm.

I've actually had someone pull this more-authentic-than-thou bullshiat when I told them I ate at Hankook Taqueria.  It was something along the lines of, Pshhh... it was good until Alton Brown started liking it.

Ha.  I've been there once.  They sell Korean tacos at several bars near me now and since Hankook is all the way on the other side of town I never get over there.  Unfortunately, they aren't as good as Hankook and they don't have that awesome bibimbap that Hankook does.

Can't really comment. The last sentence in the first damn paragraph made me too hungry to read any more.

The short rib taco: warm tortillas, Korean barbecue beef, cilantro-onion-and lime, topped with a spicy-soy slaw.

I never ate at his food trucks, but his place in Culver City makes some good food, including a sriacha rice
krispy chocolate bar.  If there is one thing to say against him its the over-reliance on sheer heat in leiu of
actual creativity, but that doesn't mean the stuff wasn't pretty tasty nevertheless.

He was actually in the restaurant holding court the night I went there, and while his food was quite tasty, he
certainly seemed like a hipster douchebag foodie straight from Central Casting from what I overheard.

I don't mean to oversell it, but for those who have never had Kogi BBQ- In the early years, it was not uncommon for their trucks to have a 90+ minute line. I waited gladly every time. They're that farking good.

What was funny was a few years ago he got kicked out of orange county because he didn't apply for the required permits to operate down south. His response was something along the lines of "we are bringing food to the people".....

Its tacos dude, not freedom.

Ok its sort of like freedoms...
