I’m lagging behind on the Hyperion write-up — it’s running close to 1000 words, and it’s still not quite ready. But it will be, in case anyone’s actually thinking of going there for hangover brunch on Saturday. A word of caution: Don’t.
Anywho, youngsters are driving the food discovery process in the West San Gabriel Valley. While I believe calling the WSGV the (626) is a complete misnomer as Glendora, Pasadena, Altadena, Walnut, La Puente and Baldwin Park have absolutely zilch to do with Alhambra, Monterey Park, San Gabriel, Rosemead, etc., this cutesy blog brings new SE Asian perspective that has be sorely lacking from a few native speakers. Peep:
Three college kids started Oh My Food Coma (#OMFC) in ’10, and I’m sad I haven’t discovered them before. The wealth of information regarding Indonesian and Burmese food (as well as food culture), is fascinating. Do you REALLY want another plate of fried dumplings? I do not. Los Angeles County is home to the largest Burmese population in the entire nation. I’d rather have a plate of samosa salad and some braised pork belly in pong ye gi instead. While you know how I feel about amateur recipe blogs, Josie and Justin are handy with the graphics, which makes the site attractive, and it’s easy to skip straight to the restaurant coverage.
Kudos to you all, sorry I didn’t discover OMFC earlier.
