This week's food news

The San Francisco Chronicle did a nice job on a local bloggers article. Offhand, I would say food bloggers in the Bay Area are about a year ahead of L.A. food bloggers. Eating L.A. was one of the first devoted specifically to restaurants in the Los Angeles area. A few more have sprung up, although some explore other areas besides restaurants and some are more oriented towards cooking. Jessica Ritz' L.A. Ritz has dual preoccupations of food and architecture; Professor Salt's Ya Gonna Eat That concentrates on Orange County; Low End Theory offers reviews of L.A. ethnic restaurants; Steve Doggie Dogg's Hot Dog Spot specializes in guess what; Lemon Chicken/L.A. Dining and Sarah's TheDeliciousLife both have a wide range of reviews.

The N.Y. Times delved into chaat, the Indian snack food, in great detail. Plus they referenced Chowpatty Beach several times, which I appreciated since Chowpatty is my Chowhound screen name. Chowpatty Beach in Mumbai is apparently ground zero for delectable Indian snack foods.
Where to get a good chaat in L.A.? I know they have all the ingredients at India's Sweets and Spices, but I think they expect you to mix it up yourself. Urmi emailed and said he thinks you can find several chaats at Surati Farsan in the Pioneer Blvd of Artesia. Something to investigate...

I also loved the Time's graphic on their article about annoyingly complex restaurant menus.
