Renowned LA Chef Gives Up Meat, Might End Career

Roy Choi, co-founder of Kogi BBQ, is renouncing meat-eating and, consequently, the food industry.

Yesterday, Los Angeles-based chef Roy Choi, whose popular Korean taco truck Kogi is considered a pioneer of California’s gourmet food-truck movement, announced that he has given up meat, leaving his future in the food industry uncertain. Taking to his blog to air his grievances about the profit-driven nature of his line of work, the chef revealed that his professional pursuits are no longer consistent with his morals. “I talk to animals and kids,” Choi writes. “I feed adults. Time to switch. Talk to adults. Feed animals and kids.” As a result of his new stance on eating meat, Choi says he is contemplating ending his lengthy career as a chef.
