In case you didn’t notice, KOi was just all over the place yesterday.  From Bo’s radio spot on KBOO to a great Fox12 news story, the K-truck was on the move.

We’ll post the podcast when it’s available, but make sure to support KBOO local radio in the meantime!

SCHEDULE UPDATE: We’re unfortunately closed for lunch today because of a few landlord problems, but we’re working hard to make sure we have consistent locations to serve up deliciousness on a regular basis.

Come one come all: you know you want one…

K-delish?  We think yes!

K-delish? We think yes!

We give you a Hebrew National Kosher dog on a steamed bun with your choice of meat (short ribs, Kogi beef, spicy chicken…if you can get it in your taco, you can get it on your dog!) and top it off with our homemade Kimchi sauerkraut or signature veggies.

This east meets west K-special will be around for a limited time, and it’s only $6.00!

Koifusion on the Radio

July 14, 2009

Tune in this Wednesday July 15th, from 11 am-12 pm at KBOO (90.7 FM on your Portland radio dial) for a show dedicated to all things food carts. Koifusion’s founder and mad genius taco truck king, Bo Kwon will be interviewed along with other guests such as our friends over at Portlandfoodanddrink.com.

You can listen on the radio, through live streaming on KBOO’s website, or check back later in the week for a podcast archive.

Thanks for listening!

As we creep into the peak of the summer season, there’s been a unique phenomenon happening across the country. As some of you may have already noticed, media coverage surrounding the emerging food cart scene has been rapidly gaining traction the past six months.

Whether it’s the state of the economy, smarter spending, or simply a desire to escape fast food hell, there’s been an explosion in popularity towards street vendors and food carts all over the country.

Recently, the Oregonian wrote about the new influx of carts on Mississippi Ave in Portland in an article published two days ago, noting “Multnomah County has more than 375 food carts, with action blossoming in the suburbs — and the applications keep coming.”And apparently, some other people in Portland see potential here.

“Food carts are the entrepreneurial adventure of the 21st century,” says Howard Shapiro, a board member of the nonprofit Albina Opportunities Corp., one of the lenders that helped Goldingay with financing. “These are more than little things on wheels. They’re serving darn good food and prices at a time when people just love food.”

The New York Times have also caught on. In addition to their thorough review of Portland’s street food scene (found here), they’ve also been detailing some of the new ideas street vendors are implementing to reach customers. A series of open-air, after work summer parties has seen the marriage of local street food, good music, and a relaxed vibe.

This article details the set-up further: “Entry is free; $5 buys a plate of food. Menus have included tacos from the celebrated food truck Calexico and pulled pork from Egg, a beloved local restaurant; indie stalwarts like Tim Harrington of Les Savy Fav have played D.J. (At the next BBQ, on July 29, the chef Sam Mason mans the grill, and the Harlem Shakes, a Brooklyn band, are on the decks.) The mood is chill hipster hangout.”

Hmm…. is this a hint of things to come for our Portland scene? Stay tuned, K-heads.

More Koifusion Madness!

A big shout out to Yelp.com and Portlandfood.org for the ongoing support! Also, many thanks to the Portland Mercury and the Open Source Bridge Conference for letting us roll on up to your playgrounds last week.  Koifusion loves special events by the way, so if anyone out there wants us to come to one of yours, drop us a line here.

Thanks to all  our Twitter friends and new customers as well, especially those of you who have taken so many photos and continue to send them our way. Special thanks to @Lucasd.

We’ll be posting photos later this week from the Portland Mercury event, and be on the lookout this weekend for Koifusion After Dark; photos posted from our weekly late night PGE Park escapades.

In the meantime, check out a sample of @Lucasd’s recent photos from our weekday PSU location and from  the Open Source Bridge Conference held at the Convention Center last week:

Thanks everyone for coming out to try our tacos, and for supporting us during our first couple of weeks. We are blown away by the P-Town K-Taco Love! Also we are having a blast meeting so many cool people around town. Here are some recent photos from our new Twitter buddies and other outstanding customers.
