While Eater points out that you can get currently get Kogi food at Alibi Room in Culver City, that's only a limited menu that isn't available for lunch.
When exactly Kogi Taqueria will open is unclear, but Roy Choi and Daniel Patterson just announced that their health fast-food chain, LocoL, will officially open in Watts on January 18 at 11 a.m.
On the LocoL website, their mission statement reads:
We fundamentally believe that wholesomeness, deliciousness and affordability don't have to be mutually exclusive concepts in fast food. We believe that fast food restaurants can truly empower the communities they currently underserve. We believe that the giant corporations that feed most of America have degraded our communities by maximizing profits over decades. We believe that chefs should feed America, and not suits.
