Let’s Dish it Out! A Discussion on Asian American Foodies

May 13, 7 PM

Asian Americans utilize social media more than any other ethnic group in the United States. This may explain why there appears to be a disproportionate number of Asian American food bloggers and “Yelpers” in Los Angeles. This panel explores the growing influence and role of Asian Americans in contemporary Los Angeles food trends. Are Asians Americans truly the new “taste-makers” in Los Angeles, or even nationally?

Moderated by Nguyen Tran of Starry Kitchen, a formerly underground kitchen gone legal, the panel will include:

Cathy Chaplin

, writer of ” The Food Lover’s Guide to Los Angeles” and creator of

Robert Ji-Song K

u, editor of Eating Asian America: A Food Studies Reader and Assistant Professor,Asian American Studies, Binghamton University.

Anita Lau

, of

and prolific yelp reviewer.
