Continuing our conversation with Chef Roy Choi, known as one of the architects of the modern food truck movement through Kogi BBQ. He is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and has won more awards than we can list here. Let's just put it this way, the man was named one of TIME 100's Most Influential People in 2016. He's a NY Times Best Selling Author, TV Host, restauranteur and he is a voice and advocate for street food culture past, present, and future.
On part 2 of Michael's discussion with Roy, they delve into Roy's philosophies and beliefs. They discuss Roy's family and their pursuit of the American dream. The moment they found success, which led to wealth for the family for the first time, and how that affected Roy's childhood and relationship with money. Roy opens up about his major philosophy about sharing success with those he cared for and giving back to his community, which is what later helped save Kogi during the pandemic. Speaking of Kogi, they discuss how it all began and the circumstances that led Roy down the path of reinventing street food culture.
