Don’t Forget It, Jake, It’s Chinatown

Murderati is a group blog written by 7 mystery writers, who might be divided by distance, but united by a common love of mystery, murder and marketing. Thanks to K-Rod at LAObserved, FBLA is a firm devotee.

Today’s entry, by Los Angelean Naomi Hirahara is a preview of her LA mystery walking tour. One of the stops will be at the newly re-opened Chop Suey Cafe. Hirahara, a former editor at The Rafu Shimpo, defends chop suey thusly:

…this was the comfort food of Japanese America and mainstream America at one time. During one period of time, probably 90 percent of all Japanese American wedding celebrations and funerals luncheons took place at a chop suey restaurant.

And as luck would have it, Jennifer 8. Lee (the woman who gave us Man Date) is writing the history of Chinese food in the US. Maybe she’ll stop by.
