I was going to call this blog Girl Eats World, riffing off of band name Jimmy Eats World. Then I google-fued it and lo—taken. Luckily my pal Trisha Lagaso Goldberg is cleverer than me and tweeted the word “eatizen.” My palate was developed in Hawai‘i, Ghana, the Congo, Jordan, Indonesia, Switzerland, and New York. I’ve eaten stew made from a duiker abandoned by poachers in the Cameroon bush and sardines topped with cacao nibs by Wylie Dufresne. I’ve worked as an editor on the Time Out New York Eating+Drinking guide, reviewed restaurants for Honolulu Weekly and Honolulu Advertiser, write for Food+Wine and Modern Luxury Hawaii and act as personal restaurant guide for friends and family. I like to tell people what’s good (or what I think is good). This blog’s for you.
