Korilla Responds to Accusations of Skimping
For the past few weeks the forums have been abuzz with complaints about Korilla BBQ’s shrinking portions- specifically the filling in the burritos. Last week our Rachel Goldner hit up the truck
stuff her face research whether or not the skimping extended to the bowls as well. Case closed, right? Not exactly. Commenters were not satisfied, and on Friday we got this response from Korilla owner Eddie Song…
When news broke out over alleged ‘skimping’ on food blogosphere, naturally, I thought someone on our staff was breaking major health code rules and eating the food as it’s getting made. Ridiculously enough, our work environment is so laid-back that ‘skimping’ would be as hard to enforce as a 11AM opening time, which has yet to happen! (Sorry Terry & friend for [the other] morning).
Nonetheless, we decided to hold our own internal audit independent of Midtown Lunch’s forensic food investigators.
Our initial findings have been very revealing. When questioned regarding the ‘skimping’, a couple of our managers replied, “Some of us are working [at Korilla] because we are addicted” to “So Midtown you’re hungry, HUH??!!” Even more interesting is a rumor of profiling of a special kind. Let’s just say that the Korilla crew wouldn’t know whether you decided to action jackson a membership to Equinox or on the flip-side decided that you needed to squirrel away a few pounds for the winter. The only way is to tell us you need more or less! We have a patent-pending reflect-o-glass on the truck that uses ultraviolet light technology so you can see what goes down. Ask our crew about it!
Well, that settles that! Right?
