SGV 002: Numbing Spice & the Boba Blow Up
/

The San Gabriel Valley has America’s highest concentration of Asian immigrants, and a regional dining selection to match. The LA press corps has published plenty about this in recent years, but how much of it is actually relevant to locals? To kitchen workers?

This week we hear from “Duchess of the SGV,” Kristie Hang, freelance food & travel journalist. She’s reported on the Valley’s full spectrum of Asian cuisine, from supermarket sushi to chicken you need a hammer to eat

We had a great conversation about the area’s Asian diaspora; its contributions to SoCal’s food scene, the dark side of the service industry, struggles with Covid, and why certain towns in the 626 aren’t feeling the magazine love. Listen up, and follow her on IG and Twitter!
