Summer may not start until this weekend, but on Monday I rang in the season early by performing a New Yorker’s seasonal ritual: standing in line with a couple hundred people at a food festival. It’s something I tend to avoid no matter what time of year, but despite that I made my way to West Chelsea to the Zagat Food Truck Frenzy in order to get a taste of some of the food trucks that don’t often make it to Midtown South or Flatiron. What I found was a number of tasty tacos and a bunch of trucks I want to try out some more.

Show of hands – who’s a fan of the Korilla BBQ truck? And who’s active on twitter? Both hands raised? Good. As we now know, Korilla has made it through to the final rounds of competition on The Great Food Truck Race, and anyone who wants to show support to Korilla BBQ can do so by adding a #greatfoodtruckrace hash tag any time you mention @KorillaBBQ in your tweets. So support your home town team and get to tweetin’ people!
So everyone’s aware that Korilla BBQ’s truck is doing the Food Network’s “The Great Food Truck Race,” yes? The second season is currently in production with the teams racing around the country hoping to make it to the next round, all to win some cash money. Well, this past weekend the remaining teams made a pit stop in Manhattan, Kansas aka “The Little Apple” and a tipster sent along these photos. And if you thought lines were big in the Big Apple, check out these lines in the Little Apple.
*SPOILER ALERT* Great Food Truck finalists are after the jump…
The guys at Korilla BBQ have been very busy. In addition to preparing to be reality TV stars, they have finally launched their much anticipated second truck. It premiered on the street today in Chelsea bringing their Korean tacos to more New Yorkers. A second truck means more locations throughout the city, including an extra day in Midtown. The original truck will maintain its current schedule (with stops in Midtown on Monday & Thursday) and the new truck will be parked in Midtown West on Fridays. Check them out on twitter or through the ML Twitter Tracker.
It seems just like yesterday that the Korilla BBQ truck hit the streets of NYC, serving up Korean tacos to grateful lunchers across the city. Now they’re hitting prime time, as contestants of the upcoming season of “The Great Food Truck Race”, which will premiere August 14. Whether or not you’re a fan of Korilla, these home town heroes from Queens definitely deserve support from New York. Let’s show those Californians how we roll! [via Eater and Grubstreet]
Korilla BBQ Truck Number Two Coming Soon: Just got word that Korilla BBQ has plans to roll out a second truck in the next week or two. This means they will be able to expand their locations and hopefully park in Midtown more than just on Mondays and Thursdays. I wonder if this could also mean an expanded menu and shorter lines? We shall soon see!

This week I noticed on the ML Twitter Tracker that Korilla BBQ was trying out some new menu items–citrus glazed version of their “Wonderbird” (aka chicken) and the KALBiester which is their take on traditional BBQ (kalbi is marinated short rib). Being a Korilla fan, I had to go check it out. Read more »
In the months since the Korilla BBQ truck first hit the streets they’ve revamped their menu to make the truck more efficient. You still have the option of mixing and matching toppings but they’ve put together some “best of” combos. I liked the Pork Chosun Bowl I first tried in the fall, so I decided to go with their Wild Child combination ($8) with their house made tofu and a more than liberal dousing of their k’lla sauce.

If you had a chance to check out the Korilla BBQ truck on 58th Street today you might have noticed they just launched a brand new “Heritage” menu. The Korean/Mexican fusion truck still allows for complete customization of their burritos, tacos, and bowls, but to make it easier for those who find the process a bit intimidating, the heritage menu features already assembled options- keeping those tough choices to a minimum. They also feature adorable names like the “Eye of the Tiger”, “Wonder Bird” “Porkinator” and “Wild Child”, in addition to options for kimchi lovers (“Kimchi Time”), and the person who likes to be surprised by the chef (the “I’m Feeling Lucky”). Sadly it looks like the “chompers” are gone, but if it means a more efficient truck we’ll take it.
Check out the complete new menu, on their website.
After reading Chris’ early word on Korilla BBQ, I made a mental note to check it out next time it came to my nabe. When I read on the Twitter Tracker that they’d be on 46th and 7th the other day, I took the opportunity to hit them up for lunch.
