Jonathan Gold has been my unbeknown long time guru of gastronomy. He unknowingly took me in back when I was in the 11th grade, the first time I read the weekly other than to see what local punk shows were coming up--I was mesmerized.
Every single Thursday morning I would eagerly walk to the nearest distributor of the Weekly--this coffee place that was 5 blocks the other direction from campus--and stumble my way back to school, late, reading his newest find and slowly walking. Many times, walking by a lot of those places.
This, in combination with a growing obsession with food and a less than social High School experience...was the birth of Teenage Glutster.
I've actually met him a few times already and was rather blissful to find out that he knew I was even alive. But when I found out that he recently gave me props on this Weeks review of Moles la Tia, I was euphoric.
"Word got around about La Tia almost the moment it opened, from a WIDELY NOTICED post on the Teenage Glutster Blog..."(28 Gold)
Mundane Mexican No More was one of my most passionate pieces ever, just one of those moments, I remember I couldn't rest until I was done with it.
Thank you Food Shifu, thank you.
