Haiku to Kogi Taco Truck (Los Angeles)

Wait was two hours
Little meat, plenty of sauce
Why so popular?


Seriously, 2-3 bites done, scattered bits of meat drench in marinade. A pointless cabbage slaw that just tasted like vinegar. Cold corn tortilla. What's up with that? Really $2?

Ah man that's too bad.. the concept always sounded really good to me. Off day?

Nah, this was echoed by a few friends of mine who have had it in LA.

Hey Clayfu - I always wondered about this.....Alan Wong's used to make Bulgogi Tacos back when I lived there....and I've even made it at home. So I always wondered.....

i thank you for waiting with me, even though you could not partake due to the prescatarian diet and them running out of tofu. but i must say they are very nice people. their sauce had way too much vinegar and none of the meats stood on their own except for the chicken.

we should try some of these taco trucks: http://eatdrinknbmerry.blogspot.com/2009/02/taco-stands-standing-tall-los-angeles.html

Kirk: Alan wong is a better chef =P.

Nick: I don't need to taste, my palate is so well calibrated that I just need to dip my finger in the sauce and sniff it to know what's wrong =P

I am not a taco fan either. And taco trucks don't seem very sanitary to me.

My sis in law was just telling me about this truck today. She hasn't had their tacos, we were simply talking about the incredible line people wait in for the tacos. I'm a fan of taco trucks but part of their greatness is walking right up to the window, and then order, pay and eat in a matter of 3 minutes.

Taco trucks never seemed that useful to me. You can try digger derrick trucks as they serve with great qualities.
