roy choi is one of food & wine's best new chefs 2010

Hey look! Roy Choi, the culinary brains behind the now-famous Kogi truck, and the guy you can blame for jump-starting Los Angeles' food truck craze, was named one of Food & Wine's Best New Chefs 2010.

Seriously, every conceivable cuisine now has one or more food trucks representing it in on the streets of L.A. -- banh mi, Indian, Hawaiian, grilled cheese -- you name it. And you can trace them all back to Kogi. Sure, food trucks have been around for a while. But Kogi made them hot.
