In honor of critically acclaimed multi-Oscar-nominated film Parasite from director Bong Joon-ho, Southern-Asian restaurant Peached Tortilla is offering a special dish pulled straight from the film. The “ram-don” (aka jjappaguri, a mixture of instant black bean ramen and seafood udon noodles.) is made with Tokyo wavy noodles, black bean paste, neoguri seasoning, hanger steak, and caramelized kimchi. It’ll be available only for one night as part of the restaurant’s weekly ramen nights on Thursday, January 16.
