What Did You Order?: Chicken Box Work - K4 • 
Is This One Of Your Favorite Trucks?: It was • 
How Much Did It Cost?: $8 

This was one of my favorite food trucks. The spicy sauce is fantastic with the chicken, and the dumplings have a great crispy texture and flavor. However, recently I've noticed that the amount of meat is less and less each time I go. They have been substituting glass noodles in place of a good portion of the chicken. I don't really like the texture of the noodles, and now the chicken is more of a side item mixed in less proportion that the noodles themselves. Such a shame they went cheap - I'm not going back.

Is This One Of Your Favorite Trucks?: YES!! 

Food was amazing. Dumplings crispy and tasty, meat was marinated and fantastic, super sticky rice, and a salad to make me feel at least I made an attempt at healthy. I slipped into a food coma immediately after finishing. So good!!!

And that mystery bottle next to the Sriracha is the most bangin BBQ sauce I've ever had.


BBQ sauce is off the chain - tangy and sweet with a hint of Sriracha - yum!

What Did You Order?: Spicy pork boxworks 

This was really really good and a great value for the price. It reminded me exactly of the bento box lunches I used to get in grad school at the Korean place across from my office. The pork had a nice kick to it and it was the perfect about of rice to meat ratio. The veggie dumplings were good and you could choose your own dipping sauce (hoisin siracha or a soy-based sauce). It also comes with a salad which is a nice way to round things out. I will definitely come back to this truck.


I've tried both bulgogi and spicy chicken boxes. Great value for the money. Meat flavors are very good. The chicken appeared to be primarily dark meat

What Did You Order?: Kogi Boxworks 

I've tried both bulgogi and spicy chicken boxes. Great value for the money. Meat flavors are very good. The chicken appeared to be primarily dark meat, just so you know. Kimchi and mandu were decent. The rice was wonderfully sticky.


First, THEY DO TAKE CREDIT CARDS. Second, they give you a lot of food for the money. For $8.00, I got rice, mean (golgi), salad, and 3 veggie dumpling

First, THEY DO TAKE CREDIT CARDS. Second, they give you a lot of food for the money. For $8.00, I got rice, mean (golgi), salad, and 3 veggie dumplings. I was definitely full. They clearly cook with love and spend a lot of time marinated their meat. The rice was cooked well. I have absolutely no complains. This food truck is a new favorite!

What Did You Order?: Barbeque beef bowl with kimchi slaw 

There are a lot of kabob and asian barbeque trucks around but this is the best I have sampled by far. A genuine taste with the kimchi slaw that is both spicy but not overpowering. Service was good and fast. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that they don't come to my neighborhood (Union Station) enough.

Response: Moderator (Kyle) note: I moved this review from 4 stars to 5 stars because the reviewer\'s reasoning for 4 stars is not in the spirit of the review system on FTF

4.4 5.0 19 19 First, there were no Korean people making this food. It was sub-par...just because you throw a few sesame seeds on top of the food, doesn't make it Korean! And they put cheese on m Kimchi BBQ Taco Food Truck
