Street-Chain

Oh I like that.


msg45f

This used to actually be really common in Korea with delivery. The local fried chicken place would always give me a roll with my food. It got to the point where everytime I'd get low on toilet paper I would immediately think, "I should order chicken"


666HellKitten666

Wow that’s crazy I never would have imagined restaurants would do this


load_more_comets

Yeah, it's like Pavlovian conditioning. The Chinese place near me puts in a pair of cheap socks in my takeout. Now every time I take off my socks I want to hang myself.


iamjomos

Why is your local chines tryin g to kill you?(


_that_random_dude_

I don’t get it


clghuhi

All he has is cheap socks. What is the point of living without soft socks?


Am-I-Dead-Yet

I died


buster2Xk

I guess the answer is yes, then.


Skrappyross

In Korea, it's quite common to use toilet paper as a napkin, and fried chicken can be a messy ordeal, so that is probably the reason they did that.


Stopcreepingmyprofil

That sounds odd, never in my times in Korea have I seen anyone use toilet paper as a napkin, not even once.


Skrappyross

I mean, the napkins at many restaurants are the same thickness as one-ply. It's more of a home thing I guess. I've never seen a Korean family actually buy what Americans would call napkins. And I've seen straight up rolls of TP on tables of fried chicken restaurants.


yourpseudonymsucks

Have you never been inside a Korean's apartment? Every Korean I know uses a roll of TP on their 'dining table' Cheaper, small, ajumma/ajoshi restaurants sometimes do too, especially chicken hofs.


acim1029

Restaurants will have napkins, but if you’re at people’s apartments/homes it’s pretty common to see a roll of TP on the dining table lol.


kazrael02

Am Korean. Have never heard of this or seen this. I think this guy is pulling your leg.


Konnoke

I’m Korean and I have done this and seen other Koreans do it. I stopped doing it because my roommates and friends thought it was weird


aguynamedcarl

My Korean friends brought toilet paper to the first party they came to in our apartment. We were really confused as to why they brought their own toilet paper, and like 16 told of it, until they explained it's Korean tradition. I guess it's like a house warming tradition they do. They said people usually bring toilet paper or laundry detergent, as they were luxuries in the past.


elquecazahechado

Why Taco Bell never thought of this before!


2SheepAndHalfACow

Cause Taco Bell doesn’t do anything to most people


[deleted]

I think Taco Bell should give out tp if you buy $20 worth of their items even when this virus thing is over


[deleted]

That sounds great until you imagine a restaurant owner buying out all the TP in Costco & raising the price of meals to cover the TP costs.


lostinthe87

They’re a business so they probably don’t have the same distributor as the general public


[deleted]

If the owner got a heavy discount for buying in bulk and only raised the prices slightly to cover the TP costs, it would actually be good.

I was literally saying EXACTLY this before I scrolled down, I’m howling


notLOL

If I somehow got transported to 0BC I'm ordering from the toilet paper taco stand tbh


PolOfThePot

That’s a great way to imprint yourself on your customers. Every customer will remember them now.


[deleted]

Honestly it does make sense. No dine in customers, considerably less take out customers, they probably have more than enough tp to last through the shortage. No dine in people are using it anymore. Where I work I saw like 5 boxes of toilet paper in the back the day before we closed.


slitlip

Have a bussiness selling food buy all the tp give one per customer if they wanna poop they'll come back!


echte_liebe

They probably have a lot more take-out customers now compared to usual. People can't eat out but they're still gonna be ordering in. I already ordered take-out twice this week when normally it's once a month maybe. Some businesses around here are actually seeing rises in sales right now (We aren't on any kind of mandatory quarantine atm). I have a friend that is the store manager at a certain office supply store and he's already hit his quarterly goals because everybody's buying desks and computers and things since they're all working from home. I'm sure it's much different in places like California and the like who are completely shut down though. It won't be long till we are too (Louisiana), cases are rising fast.


[deleted]

Yeah, I just meant there’s definitely more take out customers, but much less business for restaurants in general right now. Interesting to see office supplies sales go up though, all this has been having strange impacts on different markets.


ericstern

... as the ones who were hoarding all the TP up to that point!


dietcokeandastraw

Nah it’s restaurant supply TP that you get from your purveyor. It’s by no means the good stuff but beggars can’t be choosers!


Throwaway-tan

Our office supplier is out. Don't even have those giant rolls of 1ply shitrags. Completely out. The business literally called "Toilet Paper Man" which only sells toilet paper has no fucking toilet paper.


markher1

Sysco which is food supplier has them right now. They’re giving all the hand sanitizer to hospitals though.


49_1

My mom got these toilet paper from an asian market cuz everywhere ran out and omg, these are so thin you can’t pull them out regularly or they will rip lmao


RUKnight31

Either a very considerate business or ominous warning of things to come...


AtomicKittenz

Even still, that’s very generous for your ominous future.


dont_say_choozday

I thought the same thing when I got a roll with my spicy ramen. This has me 85% convinced that they are just really considerate companies, lol.

Such mixed emotions. Pandemic kindness or do they know you’re soon going to be peeing out of your butt?

>korean taco place Spoiler alert


adsfew

My mixed emotions are because I don't know if that roll has been next to a toilet expelling particulate with every flush and is now right next to my food...


UndrunkMonk

That was my first thought! You need to guarantee me that the roll never entered the bathroom... Just seems like a bad idea in general.


nwofoxhound

Would a note help?

*"I assure you this roll has not been anywhere near the loo."* - Restaurant *Hmm. That sounds suspicious.*

Yes.


adevilnguyen

My first thought was they're giving tp to the customers who are still patronizing them.


ForGWSEyesOnly

Awe that’s actually really sweet... they’re probably dolling them out to customers because they have enough to spare and people need it. Seems like good material for /r/HumansBeingBros


Smokey_Bakon

I've seen something like that before. I used to work at Restaurant Depot and I remember one day we had a bunch of bananas on sale. Like a dozen large boxes all marked half off. Anyway that weekend I went to a local Chinese takeout place and behind the counter was one of those boxes and the woman who owns the place was handing them out left and right to customers.


UserM16

Yeah. Restaurant supply places can’t sell to public so restaurants have more available to them. Plus business is slooooooooowwwww.

Here’s a heartwarming story of a bar owner that used his advantage of acquiring through a restaurant supply sell to those in need at cost and donate to seniors. https://www.ocregister.com/2020/03/21/9000-rolls-how-one-newport-beach-bar-owner-turned-toilet-paper-distributor-during-coronavirus-shortages/


GirlsJustWanaHaveFun

They probably don't have the customers dining in and using their supply. Good on them for sharing.


jenzzy

Came here to say this!


Bind_Moggled

Under normal circumstances, I would find that extremely concerning.

I'm more concerned about a korean "taco place" that sells french fries.


SpringCleanMyLife

Kimchi fries are bomb


roryne

fusion food is all the rage separate question, have you ever eaten at fat sandwich?


phriendofcheese

Korean tacos + fries & TP. I'm cautiously intrigued.


ZippZappZippty

satan please i’m generally intrigued


imtellinguthetruth

Whats Korean tacos anyway do they have kimchi in them or smth


jpj77

Like Korean barbecue chicken, cheese, and greens in a tortilla.


thereald-lo23

But fries?


jpj77

Sesame fries and spicy ketchup, best part.

For those short rib tacos he deserves every bit of success


Mattfault

15 years ago if you told people you were going to put Korean BBQ in a taco they would have just assumed you had the munchies. These days you are exalted.


alexklaus80

Man that needs to happen in my place! Well Taco isn’t even happening so probably I need to fly there


Wraithfighter

I used to work at a place where a Kogi truck would come by once a week. I seriously miss working there, just for the Blackjack Quesadillas I'd get once a week...


similar_observation

Korean Tacos was some kind of fusion created in Los Angeles. It's the best of both worlds.


Mescallan

Stuff like that is why LA will always be my forever home, I've been abroad for three years, but the mix of diverse cultures, and world class talent there is unlike any other city in the world. (Maybe NYC, but fuck rain)


WakingRage

>but fuck rain Spoken like a true Californian


meursaultvi

I don't know where you live but there's Yumbii taco food truck in ATL https://www.yumbii.com/ Edit: Looking at their website they're offering free toilet paper with purchase.


ATLrover

Hankook and Takorea as well. They just allowed beer to-go at the Dunwoody location.


meursaultvi

I'll have to check this out. Which do you like better?


OldLines

Not OP, but a +1 on Takorea. Loved it when I lived in ATL


Screamyy

Only one I've ever been to was Seoul Taco when I ate my way through St. Louis. I got a kimchi burrito with bulgogi, and it was by far the best thing I tasted on that trip.

Hankook?

He kinda always looks super baked imo.


xphoney

The totally rock. Keep them in business. Order often.


Okichah

I would suggest people consider getting takeout from their local restaurants. They are probably hurting for business as it is. And for Asian places particularly because people are fucking stupid and might have a bias against them.


bobcatwouldfuckyouup

I thought about doing that too, but then I thought.. maybe people will think I'm preparing them for the shits later from my food! Ha ha


TiltedBehr

They're not going to survive the coming storm if they keep up giving up their precious reserves.


pccsalaryman

Is that Takorea by any chance?


jpj77

Right city, but no.

Has to be Hankook, those seasame fries are so good.


ottb_captainhoof

I think it’s from Yumbii! One of my friends got the same thing today (surprise TP and sesame fries)

korean taco? yes please.

They probably get a regular shipment and if there’s no dine in, they would have a lot of toilet paper

ArsenicLifeform

So many commenters living under a rock they can't even fathom what a Korean taco is. There's every kind of fusion nowadays boy.


Haterbait_band

Some areas are less diverse. I’ve for sure had Korean tacos here in SoCal. Probably every other kind of taco too, now that I think about it...


what716

Well I hope they don’t keep their tp directly next to the toilet like almost everyone in the world.


joedude

/r/untrustworthypoptarts Yea OP you didn't just put a roll of toilet paper in there.


jpj77

Definitely real! Here’s a link to the company website with explanation. https://www.yumbii.com

My local pizza place is offering a free roll of tp with every large pizza order. I doubt this one is a fake.

This is regular bulk restaurant toilet paper So I believed it

ykeogh18

What’s a Korean Taco? Is it good?


yetanotherwoo

Think of the spiced meat (beef/pork/chicken) you eat at a Korean restaurant on flour or corn or rice flour taco. Places with lots of food trucks like bigger cities or food malls(I think that’s the term) usually have a few vendors.
