All of our tacos are topped with:
- sesame-chili salsa roja
- julienne romaine lettuce and cabbage tossed in Korean chili-soy vinaigrette
- cilantro-green onion-lime relish
- crushed sesame seeds
- sea salt
$2 – Short-rib – This is our signature taco. We get the best trimmings of short ribs we can find, let it swim in our own special marinade and chop it nice and small so the flavors immediately get down with your taste buds. Once on the grill, the fat melts away to create that juicy char and tender texture that everyone loves, and the sugars just caramelize to give the meat that deep and savory flavor. This is the Kogi crowd favorite.
$2 – Spicy Pork – Spicy and sweet, but all attitude. Our pork first is chopped and is marinated with sweet and spicy flavors. Utilizing a blend of pork belly and shoulder that’s been massaged with our sweet and spicy gochujang marinade, these semi-spicy suckers are dialed back with a lusciously subtle heat.
$2 – Chicken – Our chicken is a bit lighter than our short rib and pork tacos for those of you who just want the Korean BBQ flavor with a little less attitude. We take the juiciest parts of the chicken and marinate them a light ginger-soy marinade before they hit the grill twice to caramelize the way good chicken should.
$2 – Tofu – We give our organic tofu an extra long soak in some chillies, garlic and citrus before having it char just a while longer on the grill and then – SURPRISE! – we top that with our salsa verde. It’s like organic mapo tofu INSIDE a taco. Only better. It’s the kind of vegetarian taco that even carnivores would drool over. BTW — in case you want to know where we get our organic tofu from, it’s Pulmone Wildwood.
$3 – Calamari – The newest member of our family. Our calamari swims in a wonderful citrus, soy, and ginger marinade before it dies a quick and glorious death upon our hot planchas. Its lightly charred and tender bits are topped with our sweet sticky-icky Salsa Naranja and good helping of onions and lime.
You can always order these tacos as you like ‘em — whether you want to skip the onions, salad, switch out our salsa for any of our other salsas. Roja, Verde, Naranja and Azul are all waiting for you behind deck. Feel free to go crazy and get half short-rib and half pork. My favorite quesadilla? The Animal Farm: all three meats with a helping of salsa verde and grilled onions. It’s like a George Orwell novel trapped inside an oppressive ooze of melting cheese, made finger-friendly with our crispy, chewy flour tortillas.
