A gritty, charming, and flavourful love letter to Los Angeles, L.A. Son is the story of Choi's love of food and his evolution as a chef. Choi returns to his childhood afternoons at his parents' Korean restaurant, his nights in L.A.'s illegal gambling halls and his pizza-fueled studying at the Culinary Institute of America before making his way into some of the best restaurants in America. Fully illustrated with full-color photography throughout, it includes 60 inspired recipes for everything from kalbi and kimchi to chorizo and carne asada.

Roy Choi's life is very colourful. The book has similarities to "Fresh off the boat" by Eddie Huang.
