Huffington Post: "Chinese food expert and writer Clarissa Wei took me on a walking restaurant tour of the San Gabriel Valley's spiciest Chinese restaurants."
CBS Los Angeles: "With an adamant focus on educational culinary tours, Curated Gnomes offers much more than just a couple bites of food."
In My Red Kitchen: "There was nothing about this tour I didn’t like and I’m already planning to go back to some of the restaurants. Too bad it’s a 35 minute drive to the San Gabriel Valley for me, otherwise I would go out there more often!"
Inside Hook: "Gnomes (cheekily pronounced “noms”) is one part history lesson, one part stuffing your face."
Yelp via James L .: "No only did we tried the most popular dishes from each restaurant, but we also learned the history behind the various types of cuisine and insightful knowledge about their culture."
LA Magazine: "It keys in on various Chinese regional cuisines in the Valley, but Wei doesn’t simply lead her diners from restaurant to restaurant. Her fluency in Mandarin helps navigate the largely non-English speaking venues, and dispenses cultural tidbits and food history as well."
