When I first heard about the Kogi taco truck, I happened to be in Mexico. I was surrounded by authentic Mexican taco trucks and all I wanted was one of those Korean-Mexican tacos I was reading about all over the net. Well, two years later and I finally got my paws on some of the famed tacos.
We tried one of each: short rib, spicy pork and chicken. We also got some Kogi sliders, but really, I was all about the tacos. My favourite of the three was the spicy pork. It was mildly sweet and and a touch spicy. The meat was counterbalanced by a crunchy cabbage slaw, which was a bit heavy on the dressing.
I liked the tacos, but as with a lot of things that have been super-hyped-up, I didn’t find them the mind-blowing experience most people have talked about. I still really enjoyed them though; they hit the spot and there was no wait at the truck I visited.
Mike’s of the opinion that regular Mexican tacos are far superior, but after dreaming of Kogi for so long, I’m glad I got to try the real Korean deal.
