UberEATS Celebrates the Diversity of SoCal’s Food Scene

October 18, 2017 / Los Angeles

With #EATSweek underway, we think it’s the perfect time to stop and appreciate the rich cultural diversity blossoming in the Southern California foodie scene. After all, how many cities can say they have a booming Koreatown, Chinatown, Little Italy and Little Ethiopia? Plus with UberEATS, you can enjoy international tastes without leaving your couch!

As part of #EATSweek, we sat down with a few of our restaurant partners across SoCal that offer diverse cuisines on the UberEATS app. These owners, managers, and chefs took some time away from creating unique dishes to share how their roots have influenced the food they serve. Read all their stories below, and be sure to try their $5 dishes on the UberEATS app today.*

Shoshana Joseph – Co-owner of Yogurt Stop in Los Angeles

It’s no secret that the number of Australian cafes popping up in Los Angeles is on the rise. However, we would have never guessed Aussies have maintained their tanned and taut physiques on a steady diet of baked goods and frozen yogurt! At least that’s what would appear at Australian-owned frozen yogurt shop, Yogurt Stop.
