I wanted to go! However, we were in the middle of planning our wedding and I was in school... there just wasn't time and then I forgot all out Kogi BBQ.
Last month, about a month after our wedding, I came out of the wedding fog and started following more foodies on Twitter and Food blogs and someone Tweeted about Kogi BBQ. When I started following them they were only in LA and North Orange County... just far enough away. However, a few weeks ago the got a new truck for South Orange County and started stopping close to my office. I watched their schedule online and noticed this past Friday they were going to be in Laguna Niguel. That is really close to our place!
Get to the part where you eat Korean BBQ! Okay, okay!
Last Friday the Hubs and I saved our appetites to meet Kogi BBQ, in front of a shady (as shady as Laguna Niguel can be) bar, near the Crown Valley exit of the 5 from 10:30pm-12pm.
We arrived at 10:15pm and there was already a line of about 50 people... as we started to wait that line tripled! Although the truck was late our nearly 1 1/2 hour wait was well worth it.
Here are your Kogi BBQ options:
The Hubs and I ordered 1 Korean Short Rib Burrito,
2 Kogi Sliders,
Blurry and my favorite :)
