Asian American History 101

Thanks for tuning in to our podcast!

Dec 13, 2021

Welcome to Episode 62! It’s time to bring back another episode on the history of an Asian Pacific American food. In this episode, we talk about the history of Japanese food in America. From sukiyaki to teppanyaki to sushi, Japanese food is one of the few Asian cuisines that is viewed as more refined and deserving of higher prices, but it wasn’t always that way. We also bring back another segment of What Are We Watching and discuss the new Netflix Rom-Com Love Hard starring Jimmy O. Yang. We give our thoughts both good and bad on the Asian representation in this movie. One restaurant we mention is Shojin in Downtown Los Angeles and Culver City.
