You know what they say about the best laid plans.
I was on my way home from work with plans for a home cooked vegetable curry dinner. At the grocery I picked up some cauliflower to add to the carrots, potatoes and peas I had at home. Everything was going to plan.
Then I walked the dog, and on my way back along 14th Street between 3rd Avenue and Irving I saw a new food truck: Korilla BBQ. The veggie curry would have to wait for another day.
The Korilla truck has a build-your-own philosophy: Choose a protein (bulgogi, pulled pork, chicken thighs, tofu), pick a starch (rice, tortilla) and deck it all out with your choice of fermented and pickled veggie toppings. I got a rice bowl with the pork and lots of kimchi. At $8, I thought the portion was just right- definitely enough for a hearty meal. And all the guys in the truck were friendly and helped me pick my toppings and sauce.
This was my first experience with Korean BBQ. I found the pork very fatty and that didn't appeal to me. The sauce was really tasty, and the veggies and rice were both great. I would try Korilla (or other Korean BBQ ) again, but I would skip the pork.
