Kogi Comes to Dallas as Goghee

Korean-Style Tacos

Korean-Style Tacos

I noticed an announcement on THRILLIST the other day.  One of California’s hottest taco trends, Kogi BBQ, has influenced one of Dallas’ newest grab-n-go’s.  Goghee-to-Go features a variety of Korean BBQ dishes, specializing in Korean-Mexican fusion and rich flavors.

Goghee’s principals are based on speedy service and quality food.  All their ingredients are fresh, and food is made to order.  Critics and bloggers are already touting the beef tacos; their beef is shaved rib-eye, seasoned and marinated overnight in soy sauce with sugar, ginger, and garlic.  Looks like the menu offers up traditional options (tacos, burritos, nachos, quesadillas, etc) with complex and new flavors.

I really want to try out this new spot!  It’s located by the original Sonny Bryan’s off of Inwood – south of Lover’s Lane, closer to Harry Hines and the Medical District.  It’s a little out of the way for me, but it sounds like it’s definitely worth it.  Let me know what you’ve heard or if you’ve tried it for yourself!!!

Little tidbit of trivia: the Korean word “kogi,” which translates to “meat,” is often mispronounced.  When said properly, it sounds literally like go-ghee, hence the owners’ choice in name.  Gimchee (Korean slaw, formally spelled “kimchee”) is a great addition to any plate at Goghee-to-Go.

    Looks like the speedy service leaves something to be desired (at least in Goghee’s first week). Here’s some feedback left on the “food feedback Friday” section of SideDish from member Aria:

    Goghee To Go Korean BBQ Tacos
    (Inwood/near Harry Hines in old Burguesa Burger spot)

    The good: DELICIOUS food! Loved the beef, pork and mushroom tacos. Free taco on opening day. Free cookie for the long wait.
    The bad: Ran out of chicken, ran out of gimchee.
    The ugly: Had to wait an hour and twenety minutes for our food. (It was opening day and they had the free taco promotion, but man… I’ll have to wait awhile before I attempt that again on my lunch break.) Hopefully they’ve worked out the kinks.
