BEST FOOD TRUCKS 2012: #30

 

You’d have thought it would have hurt team Korilla BBQ for being called cheaters for adding more than $2,000 of their own money into their cash drawer on what has basically been the representative show for food trucks on cable TV (Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race). But chef Tyler Florence sending this truck packing didn’t relegate its owners Edward Song, Paul Lee, and Stephan Park to obscurity — it has quite the following in New York City.

 

Taking a cue from Kogi like so many others before it, Korilla BBQ does the whole Korean-Mexican fusion thing, but in orange tiger-striped fashion, offering three ways to KBBQ: tacos, burrito, or the chosun bowl. You get your choice of rib-eye, pulled pork, chicken thighs, or tofu, with either sticky or bacon and kimchi fried rice, kimchi (red, summer, cucumber, kimchi slaw, red radish, or summer radish) and depending on which of the three ways you went, tomato salsa, red leaf lettuce, Korilla barbecue sauce, and shredded Monterey Jack. — Arthur Bovino, 11/13/2012

the chosun bowl is SO MUCH MORE FOOD than the burrito or tacos.

The bowl is a dollar more but definitely the most bang for your buck!

Build your own creation and you will definitely be satisfied!

can't beat a chosun bowl + any of the meats. the killa sauce is spicy, but great flavor. bacon fried rice not worth the extra $

The I'm Feeling Lucky chosun bowl is a gift to vegetarians . The homemadetofu combined with kimichi and vegetables that make up this creative dish.

skip the cheese and definitely go for the cucumber kimchi topping if they have it.
Frankie Novick
Have to get the bacon and kimchi fried rice with whatever you order since bacon makes everything better.
Foodspotting
Try the Korean BBQ Tacos
Claudia Döbelmeier
When you order anything on the menu with their Bacon and Kimchi Fried Rice, you can gloat to your friends/co-workers and say, "My lunch is officially better than yours!"
