Listen for Deren’s stories from Growing up at “Number One Restaurant” in Bushwick

Team Locasaur’s very own Deren Lin grew up working in his parents’ Chinese Restaurant in Bushwick, and from taking orders in three different languages to delivering meals the day of Hurricane Sandy, he’s pretty much seen it all. Deren comes on the pod to chat about the difference between Chinese takeout and “fast food,” his delivery adventures around New York, how technology is changing Chinese restaurant culture, and much more.
