Though vastly different in style and scope, both Wang’s “Learning from Los Kogi Angeles: A Taco Truck and Its City” and Wong’s “Eating the Hypen,” examine the complex notion of identity through the discussion of food. For Wang, it’s the complex and fragmented identity of Los Angeles via the Kogi truck and for Wong, it’s the contradictions inherent in her status as a Chinese American via the Chinese dumpling.
