FEATURE || SBS Feast - California's Little Asias

In mid-2014 I did a month-long road trip around California with my good buddy and collaborator, Peter Tarasiuk.

I was commissioned by SBS Feast magazine to visit some of the Golden State's various Asian food enclaves as part of a big, 20-page feature on 'Little Asias Around the World' - which has just been published - hurrah!

We checked out three of the best: the famous Chinatown in San Francisco (one of the world's biggest and oldest Chinatowns), got down and dirty with the Filipino kids in San Diego and ate our body weight in kimchi as we trawled through the best bits of LA's Koreatown.

The feature just dropped and can be found in the brand new February issue of SBS Feast magazine, which is available in newsagents and major supermarkets nationally.

You can download a PDF version here and visit Peter's website for more beaut images from the trip.
