Roy Choi

Roy Choi is a chef who gained prominence as the creator of the gourmet Korean-Mexican taco truck Kogi. Choi is known as one of the founders of the gourmet food truck movement. Choi’s cuisine is celebrated for being "food that isn't fancy" and creating food that represents the immigrant experience by combining different cultural recipes. His most famous iteration of this is the Korean taco, where he combined Mexican and Korean flavors. Of his unique cuisine style, Choi said, “The flavor… was a mash up of everything we had gone through in our lives. It became a voice for a certain part of Los Angeles and a certain part of immigration and a certain part of life that wasn't really out there in the universe.
