Video: Is Roy Choi The Original Asian Hipster Chef?

In this, the year of Asian hipster cuisine in New York City (New York magazine's words, not ours), it should be noted that Los Angeles food truck pioneer, hurricane popcorn maker and early Odd Future supporter Roy Choi was the original Asian hipster chef. OK, that is a crazy debatable statement, but the guy is a true original in our book. You see a bit of this in a short film from Alison Chernick on Nowness. But, also, a more introspective side of the chef. "My soul is from another time and place," he says while driving around his beloved city. This is worth a look.
