Coming Soon: Los Perros Locos at 201 Allen

Posted on: July 3rd, 2012 at 6:48 am by

Sometime in mid-April, the Sun Shine Cafe at 201 Allen Street passed quietly into the afterlife. Before death, the spot was lauded as a cheap yet reliable outpost to pick up popular traditional provisions without having to haul ass deep into Chinatown.

201 Allen is now back in action, though. Within the last few weeks, new glass frontage appeared with the space behind completely cleared of its remnant clutter. Obviously a signal that a replacement operation is already on its way. It is so.  Last Friday afternoon, we met two chaps scoping the interior and talking shop. When asked about their intentions for the mid-block storefront, they intimated that a new Colombian-style hot dog joint is presently in the works called Los Perros Locos.  Street food, Bogota-style.

The Perros peeps maintain that the city is suffering from a lack of Colombian hot dog joints, and that the Lower East Side is the perfect home. Whatever the case may be, their new eatery jives well with Mole right next door.

Hot dog choices include, among others:

The Pablo Escobar – salsa de pina remix, apple chipotle slaw and potato chips, with white sauce, dusted with “Perico” white powdered Queso Cotija cheese.
The Loisaiiiiida! – crushed fritos, all the sauces, and chicharron (crispy fried pork belly).
Create your own Perro

But the menu also includes sandwiches and burgers.

Assuming the permit application process and build-out adhere to schedule, the neighborhood can expect an opening sometime in mid-September.
