Black Jack Quesadilla

Caramelized onions and spicy pork married together with cheddar and jack cheese.  Each side of our massive flour tortillas is grilled until it gets as crispy and chewy as a great Neopolitan pizza before getting smothered in our cooling citrusy-jalapeño salsa verde.

    just got back from meeting up with Roja in La Mirada.. the Black Jack quesadilla was off the hook!! Salsa Verde is the bomb!! but the best part about it was your driver was a RAIDERS fan.. I say you let him take the truck up to Oakland for a RAIDERS game

  14. Keith says:

    When are you coming back to an area close to the O.C. ? Also when are you going to get permits for the O.C.

    We are waiting for a new truck maybe you could call it.. Naranja or Orange for Orange County..

  20. jss1 says:

    I think I’m going to join the movement and suggest at least another week for the Chicken Pineapple Torta. Best Kogi special yet!

  21. Lisa says:

    This quesadilla was the best thing I’ve tasted on the menu – please make it a regular item???

  22. slam says:

    as someone with a pork allergy, is chef ever considering a porkless alternative? I do NOT mean vegetarian but like a “Poker Quesadilla” (same as Black Jack but with chicken instead of pork)

  23. izzy says:

    I had one of these tonight for the first time, so good!

  24. Zooey says:

    better than sex.

  25. Deedub says:

    I understand now why people called for this to be a regular menu item… had one for the first time tonight, and it was DEEE-LISH!

  26. Nick says:

    I tried this last night at their Northridge stop, and like anything else that Kogi serves, this is the best quesadilla I ever had. I’ll order this regularly on top of my Kogi Dogs.

  27. Phoebe says:

    Best I’ve ever had. Come back to Sherman Oaks VERY SOON please!!!!

  28. Brennen says:

    how bout some consistancy?

    Had this at lunch on azul but not at dinner on roja?

  29. Brennen says:

    I retract meprevious statement.

    I’m sorry I get very excitable about my kogi

  30. Rosenbaum says:

    So unfair, I’m in Temecula area and this dopey county won’t allow taco trucks, so I need to travel again!!
    Yum Black Jack!!

  31. Raymond says:

    OMG THIS IS BOMB!

  32. sean says:

    the best ever please make this a regular menu item

  33. angela says:

    i hope this is served when you guys come down to oc on saturday!! :’D

  34. laura om says:

    yo vengo desde P.R. para comer todo lo que tengan. exito!!!

  35. cynicalifornian says:

    dude, i had my doubts about a $7 quesadilla, but this was DAMN good!!!!

  36. sean says:

    Guys what ever you are doing to the Quesadilla keep up the good work. Had one last Thursday at Central/Japantown location and I again say that this is the best Effin thing I ever ate. Also i want to give you all kudos for listening to us consumers/fans, i remember when there were a few times the meat quality was fatty and a few people said something about it, then *presto* everything has been spot on since. Keep this item on the menu please. See you this Thursday.

    P.S Why is no one showing Northridge some love? You guys should talk to CSUN about having your truck stop on the campus. Yea im a student lol.

  37. Chris says:

    Hi! Was wondering, if this black jack quesadilla is on the menu for the koogi truck? or is it offered only in alibi? Thanks in advance!

  38. Joe says:

    I can’t get enuff. These guys have the best damn menu. Close ur eyes and point, and im sure you will enjoy any item served up. Just got the blackjack from Verde in Altadena and was tempted to order a second Blackjack to eat on the way home. And i live half a mile from the truck :P :P

  39. Joe says:

    In response to Tony’s comment : Seems like you dont understand business, in particular supply and demand. Until they know how something will sell on a regular basis, they will continue to be out of certain items at certain times. As well there might be space issues considering they are on a truck and do not have unlimited space.

  40. Phillip says:

    Chris

    It’s available at all Kogi trucks as well as Alibi room

  41. roopa says:

    Not sure if anyone else has done this or is aware, but you CAN order the blackjack with any choice of filling. I ordered a tofu one on Tuesday night and my husband got a chicken one. Both of them were amazing (of course).

  42. smallredbird says:

    are there any trucks out today10/11 or tomorrow10/12 near culver venice area I really don’t want to visit alibi to eat

  43. smallredbird says:

    food looks great can’t wait to try it

  46. LElyse says:

    My bf and I just split one…one bite, and after we’d finished foodgasming, we both looked at each and agreed next time we’re just ordering four of these. Best effing thing on the trucks, period.

  51. Shib says:

  52. Nolan says:

  54. amy says:

  55. Happy day, thanks for your post, I appreciate the great content. I’ll be back soon to read more!

  56. allison says:

    I am a veteran when it comes to the Kogi truck!
    I love your food, but sometimes you leave out an ingredient on my order. Last week at the chatsworth location in front of applebees and by Winnetka theatre, I waited an hour and a half for my 8 shortrib tacos, 2 burritos, and 2 shortrib kimchi quesadilla. when I got home, I quickly realized that there was NO shortrib in the quesadilla!!!! I felt JIPPED!!! For the amount of food I ordered, and the time I spent waiting in line… I definitely think I should get some kind of compensation on my next order. Is there any way I can get my 2 orders of the quesadilla?

  57. chunk-gry says:

    what are the prices? do you really have to get there early?

    • Eric Shin says:

      @chunk-gry Tacos – $2, Sliders – $5, Burritos – $5, Kogi Dog – $5, Kimchi Quesadilla – $5, Calamari Tacos – $3, Blackjack Quesadilla – $7, Sweet Chili Chicken Quesdadilla – $7, Bluemoon Mulita – $3, Tres Leches Cake – $4.

      Some stops are busier than most. General rule of thumb is the closer the the center of Los Angeles we are, the smaller the lines and shorter the wait. Further we travel to the valley, south bay, or inland empire, the larger lines and longer our wait times are.

  58. larkdogg says:

    omg…blackjack is amazing!

  59. cynicalifornian says:

    how cool are you guys with special-ish orders? like, if i take a small-stomached first-timer to one of the trucks and order a blackjack w/half verde and half naranja so she could sample from both amazing worlds, would that be hokay?

  60. Eric Shin says:

    @Cynicalifornian Dude, we’ll hook you up. No problem. Just say “Mita Naranja y mita verde esta bien?” :)

  61. cynicalifornian says:

    so my order came out w/both salsas on the whole ‘dilla, but holy crap it was AMAZING!!! i coulda died right then with a foodgasmic grin on my face. my visitor totally dug the short rib tacos too. you guys rock, like ridiculously so. kogi love!

  62. Devlin says:

    I tried this for the first time last week, and sweet lord. This was so good, it may very easily be the best quesadilla I have ever had. Perfection.

  63. hungrykitten says:

    I saw this recipe in Plate magazine. I replaced the pork with tofu and tried it at home. Delicious! I hope someday I’m in LA and can try the real thing!

  64. Hello, I have been checking your website for some time now and read most or your posts. Is there any way that I can subscribe so I get updates sent to my email? Thankyou

  65. Eric says:

    @Jena Yes, you can subscribe. There’s a little button on the upper right hand corner of the posts on the front page that says “subscribe”. You won’t be able to get it sent to your e-mail, but you’ll be able to get it sent to your very own RSS feed.

  66. Dan Doan says:

    Hey I was wondering if we had to get pork with this black jack quesadilla ? I’m really interested in trying it at the Naranja truck and I prefer the short ribs over anything.

  67. Dan Doan says:

    On top of my question above this post , I was wondering what you guys meant on ” more just ask ” ?

  68. dave t says:

    Prolly the Awesomest Quesadilla I ever had.

  69. Gie Lin says:

    I came here thinking we were going to discuss a different kind of blackjack. lol. The food looks yummy though.

  70. Gretch says:

    Pineapple Pork Quesadilla….. Fantastic!!!

  71. Huy says:

    love it! this is the dish that won me over, i had tried your burritos and tacos before but wasn’t impressed… this dish converted me to stalker status, hunting down your trucks like prey…

  72. Paul T. Ireland says:

    I just had a blackjack quesadilla and it was so good, I lack the vocabulary to describe its awesomeness. I was impressed with the tacos, but this is a culinary masterpiece.
