choi

Kogi truck founder and chef Roy Choi has inked a book deal for a memoir called L.A. Son: My Life, My City, My Food.

Published on November 5th, the memoir will feature 85 recipes, including “Korean fried chicken, carne asada, homemade chorizo, and kimchi and pork belly stuffed pupusas.” The book will be part of Anthony Bourdain‘s imprint at HarperCollin’s Ecco. Here’s more from the release:

Choi takes us through the neighborhoods and streets most tourists never see, from the casinos where gamblers slurp fragrant bowls of pho to Downtown’s Jewelry District, where a 10-year-old Choi wolfed down Jewish deli classics between diamond deliveries; from the kitchen of his parents’ Korean restaurant and his mother’s pungent kimchi to the boulevards of East L.A. and the best taquerias in the country, to at last, the curbside view from one of his emblematic Kogi taco trucks, where people from all walks of life line-up for a revolutionary meal.
