some reason, I missed it.
On Saturday, I hung out with The Original "P". The first thing "P" and I did was go out to dinner at Dog Haus in Pasadena. While we were eating dinner, somehow the topic of Kogi came up. (I love talking about food while eating!) I suggested that we find a truck and after a clunky search on my cellphone, we discovered that a Kogi truck was going to make an appearance later in the evening in our area. So to kill some time, "P" and I went to my house and played a boardgame called Axis & Allies. (Because A&A is a Great way to spend an hour or two. Or eight.)
"P" and I drove to Home Depot in El Monte at ten post meridian. We drove into the parking lot, scanned it for a ravenous-looking crowd that marked the presence of the Kogi truck, and parked several feet away from the action.
What I ate:
(Fail re: camera. I forgot my Canon PowerShot SD780 IS again!)
Short Rib Tacos (2.29 USD each): Grilled Korean style short ribs and a cabbage-lettuce Korean style slaw. I liked the taco, but it failed to blow me away. I thought the dressing in the slaw was too strong: it overwhelmed the other flavors in the taco. "P" thought the same; in addition, he said the dressing was too sweet. Overall, we were both underwhelmed.
Parking: Since the location varies, there's no way I can clue you in re: parking.
The Bill: 10 USD.
My Rating: out of four stars (good). Although I was underwhelmed by the tacos this evening, to be totally fair, I'd have to try the rest of the menu before I award less than a star. Hours of operation and location varies. CASH ONLY. www.kogibbq.com
Last Word: Although the party is in the eleventh hour, I'm feeling peckish for more truck food!
