Korean and Mexican rolled into one?  It’s the latest food craze.  In LA, you have to wait one hour to get a Korean Burrito from the Kogi Korean BBQ Truck.  A few blocks from my work is John’s Snack and Deli (owned and operated by a Korean mom and son team).  It’s small and narrow (only 8-10 people can stand in there at once).  There are no tables or seats.  After reviewed by the SF Chronicle, business has been booming.

On the website, there are daily specials which are posted on a weekly basis.  The most famous of the food selections is definitely the Kimchee Burrito: Beef Bulgogi (Marinated Korean BBQ Beef) and Kimchee rolled up in steamed tortilla.  A great combination of sweet and spicy.  I also order Japchae (Beef Bulgogi on top of glass noodles) when it’s available during their daily special.  Also, if you’re waiting in line for your food, you might possibly get a free sample of various Kimbap (Korean Sushi) made by John’s mom.
