On Monday, two hundred midtown lunchers got a sneak peek sampling from NYC's next street food phenomenon, Kogi BBQ. From noon to 1pm, the Kogi crew guest-starred on FCI alum Jerome Chang's Dessert Truck to serve Kimchi Quesadillas and Chang's famous chocolate mousse with peanut butter center. All proceeds were donated to Citymeals on Wheels. Check out the play by play on Eater, reported live from the scene.
Born and raised in L.A., the cultishly followed Korean taco truck plans to open their first NYC "location" by the end of the summer. Chef Lee Anne Wong (Classic Culinary Arts '01), of Top Chef Season 1 fame, has been named Executive Chef of East Coast Operations and will head the new truck once permits have been secured.
