Kogi BBQ is making a special New York City appearance today in Midtown, drawing hundreds of curious about our city's food truck sensation. It seems, not even New Yorkers are used to this kind of attraction. "Wow, that's some crazy line! I think it will be easier to just hope on a plane to LA!" said one commenter on Gothamist. The blog Midtown Lunch live blogged the one hour appearance, watching 200 people get a kimchi quesadilla along with a chocolate mousse with peanut butter center from Kogi's host, The Dessert Truck. Of note was that Lee Anne Wong from season one of Top Chef was cooking. "She is now the executive chef of east coast operations of Kogi BBQ and will be in charge of the first Kogi BBQ truck in New York," the blog announced.
