Kimchi Taco Truck & Kimchi Grill was born out of founder Phillip Lee’s desire to share his love for Korean food with the world. “Having had the opportunity to experience different types of cuisine while traveling and living in NYC, I realized the elements of Korean flavor and taste could stand up to any of the popular cuisines such as Italian, French or Japanese,” says Phillip. His challenge was to figure out how to make Korean food accessible and memorable in ways that the general public could truly appreciate its unique and bold flavors. Phillip and his team spent months fine tuning the recipes before launching the food truck in Spring 2011. After a year of roaming the streets and satisfying many taste buds and bellies, Kimchi Grill, brick and mortar opened its doors to spread the love in Brooklyn’s eclectic neighborhood, Prospect Heights. In the summer of 2014, second Kimchi Grill opened at the border of emerging neighborhoods of Carroll Gardens and Gowanus.
