If you live in the Los Angeles area, I am sure you have heard of Kogi food truck and its famed Kogi taco. Kogi tacos pretty much launched the food truck culture and craze in the United States. For the longest time, I have wanted to share the recipe here and finally I got to do it over the weekend.
I had Kogi taco once. The food truck comes to the Orange County area from time to time and I was lucky to have tried it. I remember the line was as long as the Space Mountain ride at Disneyland as eager diners waited patiently for their turn to place the order. I thought the tacos were delicious but I was mostly impatient with the long wait. Kogi taco is basically Korean Kalbi taco, so I decided to create a similar recipe and share it with you.
I personally like my creation (Mr. Rasa Malaysia gave his thumbs up). For the Kalbi, I referred to the guest post from Diana at Eating Richly. I might be biased but the end result was a lot more refreshing than Kogi taco. I opted out the salsa in Kogi’s and serve it with diced tomatoes, red onion, and cilantro. Plus, the seasoned Romaine lettuce and the tangy dressing with a lemony note complement the tastes very well.
If you are making Korean Kalbi this summer, do save up a few pieces of the Kalbi and make them into this Korean Kalbi tacos. I am sure the delightful flavor will entice your taste buds!
