To kick off this new series is Ange Leung, better known as FoodPunk! I just met Ange in the recent months and it’s been such a pleasure to get to know her and dine with her! She is a bottomless pit when it comes to eating and is hilariously entertaining.
Specializes In: Food and Culture, Travel and Food history
Her Most Recent Discovery: The butter chicken pizza at Danny’s Market in Richmond. I went in there for Screamers and came out with a lime Screamer and the tastiest slice of pizza in hand.
Her One Thing She Will Never Eat: Surprisingly nothing. I’m always up for a food adventure!
Why Did You Get Into Food Blogging? If there is one thing I have had a constant love affair with, it’s food. I love to eat, cook and write about both. I got into food blogging because I wanted to share the cultural and historical stories behind the food we eat. I grew up in a traditional Chinese family and we celebrate all our holidays with lots of food and family. I also think food is a wonderful way to connect people, create communities and share stories. I have met so many incredible people- bloggers, cooks and restaurateurs through food blogging. Everyone can relate to food because everyone eats!
What Do You Want To Try Next?: The fleet of food carts in Portland.
If you could switch places with one foodie who would it be and what would you do?: David Rocco, the food travel chef. I’d travel all over the world, hopping from one food adventure to the next, photographing and writing the whole way along.

1.) New Town Bakery
