Kogi in Reverse? Mexican Taco Truck Sells Korean Noodles
But in one very distinctive way does Perrón distinguish itself--as seen from the photo above, they're now selling Nongshim noodles for a buck per bowl.
I can't say I've ever tasted the South Korean-style ramen (our family was more of a Maruchan clan), but the Perrón people are smart: Mexicans are crazy for Asian instant noodles. The lonchera will begin offering various flavors as part of a promotional deal with Nongshim, which is a Korean mega-corporation. I took the picture last week, but Tacos Perrón had yet to stock the bowls.
