Jet Tila spoke to LA Weekly at the LA Food and Wine Festival about why LA is the greatest food city in America. Check out his answer below and see what other LA chefs had to say here.
Jet Tila, ChefJet
I love that we have an annual food and wine festival here; many other cities in America celebrate their restaurant scene, but I’m a native Angeleno, and I think it’s important that we revel in our landscape here too. This is the only city in America where you can drive through seven countries in 15 miles — Thai Town, Koreatown, Little Tokyo, Chinatown, Filipinotown, etc. There is no other city that has that kind of diversity in such a tight-knit area.
