Jamie R. Liu
I live and work in Washington, DC. I am Food and Drink Editor for DCist. I have contributed to Washington DC’s City Paper, the Express published by The Washington Post, and Sugar Savvy and Paper Palate on the Well Fed Network. I’ve also discussed food on the Kojo Nnamdi show on WAMU.
I believe opinions are relative. I make no claims to have any authority on food or any other topic for that matter. I don’t like mushrooms, except for oyster mushrooms and chanterelles. Hate unripe tomatoes. I eat pretty much everything else. But I would probably not eat monkey brains from a monkey that is still alive and screaming.
I hate the bad sampler cheeses at Whole Foods. They usually stink and the rest of your shopping trip is full of foul cheese breath.
Fusion unless it’s homegrown is evil. I’ll leave fusion to the cosmo-drinking, Blahnik-wearing crowd. Give me Spanish tapas, Malaysian street food or pho any day.
I’m a lifelong Marylander minus a year in London. I love travel, music, dancing, soccer, rock climbing, college basketball, politics, economics, smelling my guitar, piano, photography, architecture, media and advertising. Just about anything related to the fine arts or design.
