Jonathan Gold is the Pulitzer Prize-winning food writer for the LA Times.
This week, he talks fideo and micheladas at Colonia Publica, the latest restaurant by Ricardo Diaz. It’s fall and with temperatures starting to dip (somewhat) here in Southern California, these made-to-order bowls of fried noodles cooked in a homestyle Mexican broth, served with cold, spiced beers will hit the spot.
What to order: You decide. Custom order your fideo with any toppings of your choice—don’t forget to include yourself a michelada.
Where is it? 6715 Greenleaf Avenue, Whittier, CA 90601 (562-693-2621)
Pro-tip: Jonathan ordered his fideo with smoked sausage, queso fresco and chicharrónes.
