L.A. Son: My Life, My City, My Food

The maverick chef and co-founder of the wildly popular Kogi BBQ taco trucks, pays homage to the city he loves with this cookbook that captures the inventive, creative, and border crossing spirit of Los Angeles

“Spaghetti Junction” is the bittersweet nickname native Angelenos use to describe the famously tangled freeway interchanges that define L.A. For Roy Choi, the neighborhoods in the shadow of these overpasses are emblematic of all that he loves about the city: its sense of invention, its resourcefulness, the way disparate cultures come together to form their own patois, street food, music, insults—and the energy that results.

A gritty, charming, and flavorful love letter to Los Angeles, L.A. Son is the story of Choi’s love of food and his evolution as a chef. Choi returns to his childhood afternoons at his parents’ Korean restaurant, his nights in L.A.’s gambling halls, and his pizza-fueled studying at the Culinary Institute of America before making his way into some of the best restaurants in America.

Fully illustrated with full-color photography throughout, Spaghetti Junction includes sixty inspired recipes for everything from kalbi and kimchi to chorizo and carne asada. It is a transporting, multifaceted story that tells the unlikely tale of how a Korean-American kid went from lowriding in the streets of L.A. to becoming an acclaimed chef.
