I first read the story of the Kogi Truck (bulgogi taco) at an online newspaper in February. It was on KBS news this morning. It took more than six months before the news reached Korean shores. Bwahahahaha. Anyway, here’s the original article I read and bookmarked but never got to post about. After reading it, I thought that I’d hunt for the truck when I’m in LA but I of course I couldn’t drive.
What interested me most was that the Kogi Truck is a Filipino-Korean idea for it was the Filipino husband of a Korean woman who first thought of the concept. If you visit Korea, you’ll find out how popular “fusion” food is – pizza with corn on top and pickles on the side, donkatsu and kimchi and of course, fried chicken and vinegared radish. I once saw a store in Myeongdong selling spaghetti on cone and I’m not sure if they still have it but that’s really weird.
I wonder how long it would take for the korean-bbq-to-go to reach Seoul. I might as well line up and have a taste of that bulgogi taco.
