  • Noodle Tree owner Mike Nguyen surveys the vandalism to his restaurant on Sunday.
There was plenty of breaking food news during the week, and some of it left a bitter taste in our mouths — namely the racist graffiti scrawled on chef Mike Nguyen's Noodle Tree restaurant.

Nguyen has faced insults and death threats for speaking out on CNN about Gov. Greg Abbott's decision to lift the statewide mask mandate while only a fraction of Texans have been vaccinated. Fortunately, though, community leaders have rallied around him and sent a clear message that SA has no place for hate.

Catch up on that and other easier-to-digest news by perusing the Current's most-read food stories of the week.
