Pacific Underground explores the language of food in how we tell our stories

If food were a language, what stories do we tell? This month, Pacific Underground explored what food signifies for us as Asian and Pacific Islande-Americans, what it means to us at different times of our lives, and, in a lot of ways, how we perceive ourselves. First, we share stories about eating lunch as kids. Then, the Pacific Underground team roundtables about the issues surrounding white chefs who own API restaurants. To throw some support to our favorite eateries in Portland, the Pacific Underground team talks about their must eat restaurants around town that are API owned. Producer Pamela Santos shares a love story about food. We also bring you our latest Your English is So Good.
