Tasting Las Vegas: The Podcast, Ep. 12 - Chef Jet Tila of Wazuzu

This week on the Interview Show of Tasting Las Vegas: The Podcast, I decided to revisit the very first interview for the podcast with The Face Of Las Vegas Dining, Chef Jet Tila of Wazuzu.  With all of the audio problems in the beginning of the first episode, who knows how many people even made it to one of my favorite interviews thus far, so it here it is, extracted as its own episode.  Remember, Jet will be doing a pop up on the Fukuburger Truck on Sunday, December 19th at 5pm.  The Fukuburger truck will be parked at Herbs and Rye on West Sahara.  See you at the Asian Street Food Throwdown and enjoy this little nugget of Tasting Las Vegas history!
