Hello, lil’ snacks! This is FoodieBooty and this week’s topic is all about the primordially sweet, secondarily spicy, sometimes umami, but never ever salty: me!
Before you say anything, I am aware that this is a food blog and even though I consider myself a full royal meal, there’s no chance you’re eating me so why should you care? I’ll tell you why.
After this post, each one of my posts will include an intensely passionate and honest critique of whatever restaurant/cafe/bar/etc., summons my attention and saliva (with nudes of the food included). But for today’s post, I just wanted you to know who I am in terms of life, taste, and general vibes, and how all of that translates into this food blog.
My name will remain confidential because I think that’s pretty cool. You will know me as FoodieBooty just like you know Batman, Prince, and El Buki. A concealed entity whose identity is as cool and mysterious as their work. Just instead of saving cities or changing the music world forever, I will eat my way through the cities of San Diego and Tijuana, and write all about it on this blog! Pretty heroic, I know.
Anyways, more about me. I am originally from Tijuana, Mexico and only live in San Diego when I have to go back to studying business and environment at San Diego State University. I grew up in a mustard yellow Mexican house, in which food was a member of the family. As a kid, I was taught to see food as an expression of the soul which symbolizes love, unity, and vitality. When I think of food, I think of rose colored first loves, belly-aching laughs, and those sweet memories we always seem to remember in a fog of fuzz and idealism.
In shorter words, when I think of I think of the best parts of being human. As you can probably tell, I can talk and write about food full-on Neruda style but that is just because I think there’s nothing better than to feel love and give love through it. But as an end to my soliloquy, I will say that the main purpose of this blog is both for me to have an outlet for this borderline psychotic love for food and hopefully to send all you lil’ snacks to some bomb, tasty places you’ll never forget!
I will go to both bougie and not so bougie places, both hyped and non-hyped places. I will try to hit all the categories, genres, and textures, all while sharing my honest and sometimes eccentric opinions, which you might not agree with all of the time. But if you don’t agree, food debate is one of my favorite activities in the world so please do not hesitate in leaving comments on why you think I’m wrong or other places you think I should try!
So enough about me! Check out the next post to see what I think about South Park’s goth-y vegan restaurant/bar with very strong cat-owner vibes.
Welcome to the juicy and ethnically diverse booty that is Foodie Booty!
