Perhaps better known as the father of the Korean Taco, Roy Choi is a classically trained chef and valedictorian of his class at the Culinary Institute of America, and a founding partner of Kogi BBQ in Los Angeles. Kogi BBQ, smack at the center of California’s taco truck revolution, is responsible for bringing us Korean-Mexican fusion innovations like Kimchi Quesadillas and short rib tacos, and has reaped such success perpetrating a street food renaissance that it has expanded to 5 trucks and 3 restaurants in under 4 years.
