Anthony Bourdain Praises LA's 'Low-End Ethnicky' Food Scene

Via Fishbowl LA: Anthony Bourdain spoke at UCLA's Royce Hall yesterday to get the word out about his newest book, Medium Rare: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook. While he says that New York still beats Los Angeles in the gourmet restaurant field, Anthony Bourdain has a special place in his heart for our "low-end, ethnicky stuff" and food truck scene. Strange choice of words from a best-selling food author, but we'll take it.
