Roy Choi sits at the crossroads of just about every important issue involving food in the twenty-first century. As he goes, many will follow. Anthony BourdainFrom the maverick chef the New Yorker called The David Chang of L.A. And founder of the wildly popular Kogi taco trucks, comes a cookbook that’s as inventive, creative, and border-crossing as the city to which it pays homage: Los Angeles.

Los Angeles: A patchwork megalopolis defined by its unlikely cultural collisions; the city that raised and shaped Roy Choi, the boundary-breaking chef who decided to leave behind fine dining to feed the city he lovedand, with the creation of the Korean taco, reinvented street food along the way.

Abounding with both the food and the stories that gave rise to Choi’s inspired cooking, L.A. Son takes us through the neighborhoods and streets most tourists never see, from the hidden casinos where gamblers slurp fragrant bowls of pho to Downtown’s Jewelry District, where a ten-year-old Choi wolfed down Jewish deli classics between diamond deliveries; from the kitchen of his parents’ Korean restaurant and his mother’s pungent kimchi to the boulevards of East L.A.
