“Amongst people who are into food out here, there’s an obsession with finding "’the best’” something. There’s an obsession with authenticity, which I find a little bit weird. I think it’s kind of false. There’s a little of that in any big city that has a lot of food, but it’s THE thing here. Everyone wants the best burger, the best ramen, the best whatever. I find it almost beside the point.” — L.A. Weekly restaurant critic, Besha Rodell, on her early impressions of L.A.’s food conversation. [KCET]
