Kogi Truck

This food truck serves Mexican-style tacos with a Korean culinary twist.


Yakitori grilled over traditional white charcoal (flown in from Japan) -- chicken livers, heart, thigh, skin and, if you go early, ask about the off-the-menu stuff like the sublime “chicken butt.” It runs out fast. Regulars sit at the counter.
