Tell us about yourself—what do you do?
I run Dosirak, which is an F&B business serving takeaway Korean food. I’m half Korean, and I started the business because I wanted to feed people quality Korean food.
If there was a dish that describes you, what would it be?
I think it’d be bibimbap (Korean mixed rice), because you can mix and match different ingredients and make every day unique.
What’s a dish that describes you, and why?
LA Kalbi, a famous Korean BBQ dish created by a Korean immigrant in Los Angeles. The competitive nature of the restaurant business made him strive to be different, and the dish embodies the Korean ‘get creative or die’ attitude, which I believe describes me best. It’s sweet and savoury too, so there’s depth to it.
If you could travel through time to any period and place, where and when would you want to visit?
Seattle in 1991, so I’d get to see all the great acts live—Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, and Soundgarden.
What’s the funniest or strangest conversation you’ve ever overheard?
One time, I was standing too close to a couple on the escalator, and I heard them say “I can’t wait to eat your face tonight”.
