My name is Yijia and I live and work in Manhattan.  New York City is a great place for food from all across the four corners of the Earth, a perfect place for me, someone who loves to talk about food.  Whether it is something I have eaten, am eating, or will be eating.  More often than not, I talk the ears off of those who will listen to me about what I am craving.

Finally, I decided that instead of subjecting my friends and potential future friends to conversations dominated by my excitement about restaurants and recipes, I would try to focus my energy on writing it all down to share with more than just those I can still get to listen to me.

I look forward to sharing my adventures in food and cravings with you, one post at a time!

    This blog is amazing. You are so prolific, a great photographer, and have visited every restaurant in NYC I want to go to and some I haven’t even heard of!! I can’t stop reading. I only wonder why you don’t go out in Astoria!

    Hello Yijia,
    I simply wanted to thank you for your gracious posting on Rotisserie Georgette. You cant imagine how happy it makes my colleagues and me to learn we are making people happy with our food. I’d be grateful to meet you in person on your next visit. Please do let me know when you’re coming in. Best regards, Georgette

    Hello – I would like to talk to you about one of your photos. I work for an artisian smoked seafood company that does the smoked trout for the walrus & the carpenter. I do’nt have a great photo, and instead of re-inventing the wheel, I wonder if we could work something out? I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you~ Karen Woodard (Anacortes, WA)
