Kogi BBQ, arguably the most well-known gourmet food truck, and the one the helped launch the movement back in the late aughts, is ready to settle into a full standalone brick and mortar in Palms, just a few blocks from Culver City.

Taking over the former Sushi Central, Kogi Taqueria is poised to bring the truck's favorites to a daily home some time next week, with a simple menu of tacos, burritos, and combos. The menu items typically run under $10, with single tacos priced at $2.50 and filled with your choice of short rib, spicy pork, chicken, or tofu. Burritos are just $7 and come with the same fillings.

In addition, the brick & mortar features some specials, such as chicken wings, tofu & citrus salad, Korean spiced fries, and a "Pacman" burger, if you aren't craving tacos and burritos. Kogi Taqueria also marks Roy Choi's return to the neighborhood, after the chef first opened Chego (now moved to Chinatown) up the block on Overland back in 2010.
