One of the hottest food fusion phenomenons to hit Los Angeles is the Kogi BBQ Truck, a Korean-Mexican street-food-fanatic’s delight. And it’s not just the short rib tacos and kimchi quesadillas causing a stir. In fact, much of the tweeting about Kogi is, well, Twitter! Kogi uses Twitter to announce its next destination and, upon arrival, there’s usually a hungry crowd of 200+ waiting to dig into tasty Korean-Mexican fare. And people love it! Can you say Roach Coach 2.0?
Betty first heard about Kogi on Good Food with Evan Kleiman, and their Korean-Mexican fusion definitely inspired her! So, by combining elements of her favorite cuisines, Thai and Mexican, Betty rolls up a little fusion of her own: Thai-Mexican Rolls w/ Peanut Dipping Sauce.
But that’s not the only fusion Betty’s dishin’ up. No Ma’am, she’s also servin’ some video fusion in Part Two of her Las Vegas edition of the Fast Food Five. In Part Two, Betty rallies Celebrity Chefs Evan Kleiman, Richard Blais, Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger to see if they got game outside of the kitchen. Check out Fast Food Five: NATPE 2009 (Part Two).

TECH TALK WITH BROADBAND BETTY
Although Betty’s alma mater, UCLA, takes Stanford to school on the basketball court these days, there’s no competing with the Cardinal when it comes to tech companies. One of the latest born out of Stanford is Zunavision, which enables content creators like Betty to dynamically insert relevant offers and sponsorship without shouting about it or interrupting the show. The in-video GoDaddy coupons in Betty’s latest Fast Food Five: NATPE 2009 (Part Two) were inserted using Zunavision… and those Betty coupon codes can save you some jack!

Al at The Fun Times Guide did a write-up on Betty calling her the SNL of Cooking Videos. OMG, that’s unbelievable! Al writes, “Average Betty does for cooking what Saturday Night Live does for the nightly news.” Thanks, Al! Betty couldn’t ask for a better review! But Al makes an interesting point saying it’s “hard to know” Betty. What? Is this true? Betty is surprised to hear this considering she’s always available to answer questions… either in the comments, on Twitter, on Facebook, or email. What do you think? Is Betty hard to know?
