Long Lines & Waits for Street Food? That's Up To You
"It was the longest I have ever waited for food in my life. And I'd do it again in a flash." That's LA Weekly's Pulitizer Prize winning food critic Jonathan Gold on last week's first annual L.A. Street Food Fest. It's about your personality, he says. "In my experience, you are either a festival guy or you are not... To me, 45 minutes seems a reasonable amount of time to wait for dim sum on a Saturday morning but altogether too long to wait for entrance to a cocktail lounge. Your priorities may be different."
