Korean-Mexican Fusion: Korean BBQ Kalbi Tacos?
What I like best about living in LA is the accessibility to almost any type of food you crave. The SGV is home to many cantonese, chinese and taiwanese establishments. Little Tokyo and the South Bay are home to delicious japanese food. Thai food in Hollywood, etc. But Koreatown has to be one of the largest ethnic enclaves in Los Angeles. Within Koreatown, there’s also a growing population of Latinos. Mmm… korean food and mexican food - such good stuff.

This is gonna sound gross and I was hesistant to even try it, but Kimchi Quesadillas are weirdly addictive.
Brie and kimchi sandwiched in tortillas and BBQ’ed.
Try it, the neither flavour cancels the other and it’s a nice snack.

Jeez, you waited almost a hour for these tacos? I guess I got lucky with no wait at 1AM in the morning on Abbott Kenney.

I don’t know how I would rate these tacos. Would I say they’re overrated? Ya. Even though Kogi is pretty good, for some reason, I’d rather hit up a Mexican Roach Mobile and pay $1-1.25/taco without the wait. I actually prefer some lengua/cabeza/etc over these Korean bbq meats. Plus, I ordered the Kimchi Quesedilla for $5. Totally NOT worth it. To me, it was like eating kimchi jun at a Korean restaurant (not a good version of the pajun) with cheese.

I think this will be a fad, but we’ll see. Happy eating! smile

Where’s Tony?
Honestly, the kimchi quesadilla sounds good to me but I’m not fucking stalking a taco truck. You’re there when I’m drunk and hungry, cool, otherwise I’ll just go home and pass out or have some cornflakes man.

Gourmet On the Go: Good Food Goes Trucking
By Joel Stein Monday, Mar. 29, 2010
Every movement needs a creation myth, and the gourmet-food-truck movement has a really good one. In 1996, Roy Choi, a law-school dropout and a general disappointment to his Korean-immigrant parents, was watching the Food Network one afternoon, eating Cheetos while coming down from some serious drugs, when suddenly Emeril Lagasse started talking directly to him.
(...)
Choi, who does his proselytizing from a fleet of culinary clunkers, became the leader of this movement not just by creating a whole new cuisine--a mashup of Korean and Mexican food that has given rise to short-rib tacos and kimchi quesadillas--but by dishing out punk attitude.

Kimchi quesadillas 1. Korean/Mexican fusion, the next big thing.
Already popular among street-food savvy eaters in Southern California, the kimchi quesadillas served by the team from Kogi, a mobile Korean barbecue concept in Los Angeles, demonstrated how well Korean and Mexican flavors meld together.

Kimchi Quesadillas
(makes 1 quesadilla)
Ingredients:
2 strips bacon (cut into 1 in pieces)
1/4 cup kimchi (drained and chopped)
2 tortillas
2 handfuls cheese (grated, I used a combination of cheddar and jack)
Directions:
1. Cook the bacon and set aside retaining the grease.
2. Saute the kimchi in the bacon grease until it starts to caramelize, about 10 minutes.
3. Melt a touch of butter in a pan.
4. Place a tortilla into the pan and swirl around in the butter and set aside.
5. Place the second tortilla into the pan and swirl around in the butter.
6. Sprinkle on half of the cheese onto the tortilla followed by the kimchi and bacon followed by the remaining cheese.
7. Cook until the quesadilla is golden brown on both sides and the cheese is melted.

Shortrib Kimchi Quesadilla
April 7th, 2010
This old classic was born on a rainy day back in the first few days of Kogi. Someone had called the health dep on us to rain our parade and we had to shut down for 40 minutes while we were inspected. We passed the test, but we felt bad for the people who had stood by and waited with apprehension and anxiety of whether or not we’d serve again. So we decided to give the people something special, and thus, the Shortrib Kimchi Quesadilla was born! Now it’s back again, so get it while it’s here!
