The great thing about living in L.A. is the foreign street cuisine that’s readily available. Having gone to popular night markets in Taiwan (an island country in East Asia, located off the southeastern coast of China) like Raohe Street, Huaxi Street and Shilin, and eaten some of the most distinguished Taiwanese street foods, we knew what to look for here in L.A.

We checked out chef Diego Velasco’s new “Crawfish Boil” feature at Memphis at the Santora in Santa Ana, CA’s Artist’s Village.
