This month’s Latin-themed Eat the Street featured six new vendors, representing foods from around the globe. From Kohnotori’s yakitori to Pirogi’s Ukrainian sweet and savory pies, the evening offered an impressive variety of new eats. Add to this dramatic costumes (in honor of Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead) and for the first time, a beer tent, and you’ve got yourself a killer night.
Melissa Chang stopped by three of the debuting trucks—Kohnotori, Luibuenos and Bentos, Mochi and Delectables, while Diane Seo sampled dishes at Firehouse, Pirogi and Subpreme to offer mini reviews of the newbies on board.

Eat the Street: October (1 of 23)
New to Eat the Street this month: Kohnotori, known for their meals-on-a-stick (three for $5). The fresh shiitake was tender, with mild flavor. The chicken was just chicken — no surprises, but not a bad option for the kids. The arabiki sausage had nice flavor, but it wasn't crunchy; we'd still eat it again, though, just to enjoy the taste.
