Hat-tip to TonyC for linking to the article on Twitter.

(Not sure if this should go in Food Media & News since it's so L.A. centric...)

      I thought so. It was accurate. From some comments here, I thought it would be a negative article but it wasn't at all. It's someone (anyone know who?) who understands the community and what brings us all together.

      "but mainly I read it in order to understand other people’s obsessions. It’s comforting — it distracts me from my own obsessions. I don’t think I’m alone. "

    2. "Read Chowhound enough, and you realize that the most obsessive posters are not writing about food so much as they are writing about themselves."

      respect.

      1. It was like looking in the mirror!

          1. Is the LA Board going crazy trying to figure out the name of the secret birrierria?

              This was quickly moved from the LA Board to this one.

                But discussion of the birrierria wouldn't be.

                  It was Birrieria de Don Boni, formerly Birrieria Jalisco. That place is hardly a secret. It's only not mentioned in CH b/c they changed their name back in August to memorialize one of the owners who passed away.
