Checking things out since 1976

My name is Kia and I live in Brooklyn, New York. I enjoy eating, traveling, cooking, technology and home improvement. I thought I’d join the legions of food bloggers in NYC and offer a pleasure-based account of things I enjoy in the city and on my travel adventures. I like to focus on dishes and restaurants that use local and sustainable produce and livestock, and I love to write about things I make from my Park Slope Food Coop loot.

Alas, I am also of Filipino descent and our disregard for mindful eating is well-documented. My recipes include local favorites as well as recipes whose ingredients have been modified for geographical constraints.Drop me a line at dopaminejunkie.org(at)gmail.com. I would love to hear from you! Tell me what you want me to write about or cook, and any questions or comments you might have. I’ll try my best to respond if you’ll try your best to be nice. Do you want to know if I really make and eat everything I post about? The answer is yes. Want to know how much something costs, where to get a particular ingredient, or what I really, really think of something? Just ask.

I enjoy covering food events even if it’s just for the photo ops. Let me know if your occasion could use a socially inept straggler with a camera attached to her face.

You can read more about me and my other pursuits here.

Cooking is like love; it should be entered into with abandon or not at all. – Julia Child
