The other day my wife and I went to check out the new Roy Choi spot in Watts, called Locol. If you live in LA you probably already know Roy Choi helms the city’s most sought-after food truck empire (Kogi BBQ), revitalized Chinatown with his Chego rice bowl spot, and more recently explored higher-end dining Pot and Commissary at the lovely Line hotel in Koreatown. Here’s Jeff Weiss’s review of Locol for LA Weekly. Watts is often referred to as a “food desert” with very few healthy options and little fresh food available. Locol aims to change that.
