KCRW's "Good Food" recently took a food-centric tour of Boyle Heights, and put together this video from the eating adventure. Arriving on Metro, producer Gillian Ferguson and Noah Allison of explored the area on foot, stopping to eat some delicious dishes, like a Oaxacan cemitas (sandwich), and what Allison calls the "best bean and cheese burrito in L.A." as well as some other local specialities.

You can listen to the segment as it aired March 10 via podcast or download as well as get the location info for the restaurants they hit up, and also check out Allison's blog for the history of Boyle Heights and a map of his walking tour.
