These people deserve a shout-out simply because I check out what they do on such a regular basis and am thankful that they’re around in the blogosphere.
For Korean food, check out what Cecilia Hae-Jin Lee is brewing up at the LA Times Daily Dish blog. Her latest piece: Jang Teo Bossam for old-school pork wraps. Driving through Koreatown gives me a headache and well…. let’s just say I finally get what it’s like driving through the SGV without knowing an inch of Chinese. Thank goodness for Cecilia’s reports (and for giving me naengmyeon recs!)
For journalism-related industry news, check out Connie K. Ho‘s tweets. I don’t know where she gets all her info, but she’s great at it. If I ever need a one stop refresher on what’s going on, I just scroll down her feed.
Another fellow LA Times food scout shout-out. Javier Cabral of The Glutster. He primarily covers Latin food and Eastside bites but is really a jack-of-all-trades. I met Cabral (along with Cecilia above) at a J. Gold dinner and well, we’ve bonded over talks on being young and in the industry.
And in case you’ve missed it, Frank Shyong‘s online mag China Townies debuted a couple months ago. The perfect read for me because it’s all about Chinese culture and food — two topics I live for. Plus, there’s a lot of interesting data in there.
