In this coming Sunday's episode of Parts Unknown, host Anthony Bourdain heads to Los Angeles for where he will explore "the meeting point of Asian, Mexican, Latino culture" with Kogi chef Roy Choi. In the preview, Choi and Bourdain go to Beverly Tofu House in LA's Koreatown and talk about Korean-American food. They eat Soon Tofu, a soup with soft tofu unique to LA. Choi explains that while Korean cuisine in LA has had to adapt since the available ingredients are different, it has never been about "pleasing the American palate." Bourdain wonders if Korean-American food has been "messed with the least" of all the immigrant cuisines in America. If you missed last week's Myanmar episode, do check out Eater's Quotable Bourdain.
