Everything’s been coming up KOi recently!
While we’ve had our noses to the grindstone, turning out some killer tacos, we’ve been getting some love from local K’Headz! We want to share the K-Love!
Frugal Living NW's Food Cart Friday Feature!
It’s Mexican food, no wait, it’s Korean, no wait…….
Frugal Living NW featured a write-up on our Bridgeport Village location this past summer in their Food Cart Friday Series! Amy from Eating My Way Thru Portland covered our tacos, burritos, and sweet potato fries! While her favorites are the pork and bulgogi tacos, she also notes not to be afraid of the different Korean marinades. We find them to all be special in their own ways.
While the Bridgeport Village KOi isn’t technically a “food cart” persay, it still holds the values our mobile trucks and catering services hold–make great food. That, paired with a knowledgable staff and good timing, will make for some sweet buzz throughout the Portland Metro Area!

Sometimes that love goes out a little further than Portland! How could we leave out the K-Love we got from The Daily Meal who even referenced our KDogs in their Top 101 Food Carts. Not only were we blown away for the mention, we managed to snag #24 on the list! In the country! Wow!
We earned #24 on the list of 101 Best Food Carts in the US
Then, of course, later this summer we received some attention from PDX Eater regarding a few pieces of paper we signed. Doesn’t seem like a big deal until you realize those papers were to lease out space in the BRAND NEW D-STREET COMPLEX to open our very first BRICK-AND-MORTAR! What?!
True story, actually. We are now in the process of opening up our very first brick-and-mortar, full on, sit-down-indoors-and-have-some-KOi establishment in the up-and-coming area that is SE Division (around 30th). Scheduled to open up early next year, this version of KOi may be the coolest yet, as it also hints at some serious rebranding that is in the works. The food stays great and the opportunity to find it is only going to get easier, people! Make sure to mark your calendars for early 2014 for the opening of the new SE KOi location.

Who knows, perhaps there’s gonna be KOi coming to your neck of the woods before the end of the next year! Keep your fingers crossed and your ear to the ground. We’re comin’!
