Winding down another year of the pandemic, Good Food looks back on the pivots, persistence, and perseverance of featured “In the Weeds” restaurants. Rashida Holmes brings the roti she first tasted visiting family in Barbados to the Arts District. Justin Pichetrungsi left an animation career to keep the wok heated at industry darling Anajak Thai. The heart of Keegan Fong and his mother’s Historic Filipinotown spot are the beef noodles and wings. Mother-daughter duo Maria Del Socorro Vazquez and Zacil Vazquez combine home and street food at Sazón in Huntington Park. The liquid gold flows at Crown & Hops, Beny Ashburn and Teo Hunter’s brewery in Inglewood. Michelle Munoz supported her husband Andrew’s backyard Texas barbecue hobby into a full blown brick and mortar restaurant, Moo’s Craft Barbecue.
