Is It Alright To Ask For Substitutions on the Kogi Truck?

SaltCod | Aug 15, 2009 01:05 AM

I went to a Kogi Truck, just off Wilshire, on Thursday with a friend. I don't like onions (they make me sick, actually, which bums me out) so I ordered the pineapple/jalapeno french toast special. They were out of the french toast and everything on the entire menu has onions in it. So, I just ordered a short rib taco and a spicy pork taco because I was hungry.

Now, not a big deal because the tacos were cheap and the meat was delicious, but I couldn't eat the onions. I got weary of trying to pick them off and did a poor job of eating around them so I got sick for the entire rest of the day. A somewhat dopey move on my part, I'm aware.

Anyhow, I just want to ask, do they do substitutions? The line is very long, people get impatient, the truck guys are focused and I've been conditioned by Father's Office to not ask. All I want is a taco or burrito or Blackjack quesadilla with no onions.
