It’s been really fun featuring some of the beloved eateries in my ‘hood. It’s also been fun because of my blatant mis-translation and liberal application of creative license.

Eater Chinese Food Week

The complete week:

Mrs. Lu of Dean Sin World

Yujean Kang of Yujean Kang’s.

Chef 石 (Shi) of JTYH

Mrs. Liu (which is NOT the same as Mrs. Lu) of Huge Tree Pastry

Writing about things my stomach will no longer tolerate.

Mr. Qi & chef Ma of Shaanxi Gourmet.

And here, we can watch Conan try to deliver Chinese food:

Just want to thank Mr. J Gold for giving me guidance. It’s obvious I had to piggyback off someone, and no one in Venice would give a flying hoot about JTYH if it weren’t for JG + LA Weekly.

  • What’s the equivalent of H.O.N.K in Southern California?
    “Also wanted to thank Eater LA’s editor for letting me cruelly mock white people on such a public forum” – I think this statement rocks even more than the HONK abbreviation.

    Thanks for reading, everyone.

  • Thank you for another informative site. Where else could I get that type of information written in such an ideal way? I have a project that I’m just now working on, and I’ve been on the look out for such info.
