Hakka the last frontier of Chinese cooking?

Colin Brown Ugly American | May 2, 2002 03:18 PM

When I was a young kid my adventurous parents took me to a Hakka chinese place in Flushing Queens, which catered to old man yelling in near defening Chinese. Small, crowded, smelly, noisy I was a little wierded out but when the food came I just stared. Pieces of bumpy yellow chicken fat floated in a hot delicious broth anchored by broken bits of delicate fowl bone.

That night has become a family joke. Including the sigh above the door that said "Hakka the Last Frontier".

Well, good impression or bad I want more. What ever happened to Hakka cuisine? Can I find some more of that good stuff in L.A.? Please help.
