Leave it to Kogi’s Roy Choi, aka the “godfather of the food truck movement” to host an evening of tacos, tequila, and tunes to create an authentic street party at The Studios at Paramount. From red snapper tacos at Loteria Grill, Baja fish tacos at BajaMar, chicken mole tacos at Pinches, and carnitas tacos from Sofiy’s Catering, this was the real Hollywood deal. Hornitos supplied partygoers with “to kill ya”, oops, I mean tequila galore and horn-shaped shot glasses. For those craving a “healthier” margarita, Skinny Girl was in the house, or rather on the streets. Musician Diego Garcia wowed the crowd and provided good low-cal eye candy for those ladies too full for dessert. Spotted at THE TASTE’s Taco Tequila Tryst festivities were chef Steven Fretz, StreetGourmetLA’s Bill Esparza, and Food Network’s Alex Guarnaschelli.

Roy CHoi is the man! Tell him to bring Kogi to the bay area.
This looks so cool. You people in Los Angeles are lucky to have the kind of weather that allows this fun stuff.
He is quite the man about town! Will be sure to pass on your message
Yes, we are lucky to have this weather. It’s been 80 in the evenings lately. Make sure to come to THE TASTE next year!
