Kogi Korean BBQ will be serving up delicious food at Sugar Rush!
Born from late-night hunger by founders Mark Manguera, Caroline Shin-Manguera and Chef Roy Choi, the Kogi truck is a traveling Los Angeles landmark that serves up Korean Mexican tacos, day and night.
Spicy Pork Tacos, Kimchi Quesadillas and Short Rib Sliders satiate the hungry mouths of Angelenos who crave excellent food on a dime budget. Quality Korean barbecue meets traditional, homemade tortillas and fresh veggies to create a taste that carries the rhythms of LA street culture and exudes the warmth of all that California sun. Under the direction of Chef Roy Choi, Kogi has developed a menu that delivers high-end food at street level prices.
Twitter is used to communicate truck locations and Chef Roy Choi’s daily specials to well over 50,000 loyal followers. Add some wheels to the mix and you’ve got yourself a restaurant that geographically responds to the flavor of the crowd – from Silver Lake to Eagle Rock to all the way down to Orange. Currently Kogi operates 4 trucks – Azul, Verde, Naranja and Roja – and fresh out of the kitchen at the Alibi Room in Culver City.

Jason Iehl and Kim Nelson, editors of SaturdayNightFoodies.com, are the consummate foodies. The husband and wife duo combine their passion for food, cooking and travel, with the need to tell the world about their crazy food adventures. They have even been known to plan entire vacations around food or take off on a “Saturday Night”, tempted by something they just saw on the Food Network or Cooking Channel. In addition to publishing restaurant and gourmet food truck reviews from their travels and keeping readers apprised of the latest food trends, Jason, a former chef, chronicles his culinary delights on the website’s “Test Kitchen”. Kim, who wants to be Martha Stewart when she grows up, practices her baking skills whenever she can kick Jason out of the kitchen.
