FollowFriday: @KorillaBBQ on Twitter

October 26th, 2010 Comments off

Korilla BBQ is new to New York, but the concept is proven in L.A.

A special Tuesday version of #FollowFriday as I’ve been hitting the food trucks and have another scheduled for this Friday. Check out past Food Truck reviews here.

OK, so last week I had a little hissy fit when the new Korilla BBQ (Twitter link) ran out of food… at 12:40 PM… with me on line. I did not appreciate the opening day hiccup as I was really looking forward to trying them out. I had loved Los Angeles’ Kimchi21 Korean BBQ Taco Truck when I was back out west in February — granted that those visits were 2 AM runs — so I had really been looking forward to the new East Coast truck.  To calm down, I Schnitzified (Schnitzel Truck review here) later in the week and decided to give it another shot when they returned to 55th and Lex. Today was that day.

I actually canceled plans to bring in Waffle Truck (review here) for breakfast for me and a colleague when I saw that Korilla was going to be in the hood.  In lieu of breakfast, we embarked early, being wary of the long lines that follow a newly hyped truck (especially one which lets users vote on where they will show up). Arriving just before noon, the line was already 30 deep. That said, we got through in about 15 minutes or so (or about as long as it took Mexicue (review here) to serve a shorter line two weeks ago). The assembly line system the Korilla guys have established works very efficiently and effortlessly, to the point you have a hard time believing they’ve only served eight lunches. They have a protein guy who starts you, a kimchi (veggie) guy who finishes and a separate cashier in the front seat.

My review and picture evidence of the deliciosity, after the jump. Read more…
