This Foodie Friday Feature is a two for one deal: two very remarkable foodies I’ve had the chance to meet and eat with on several occasions. Besides eating here in Vancouver, they’re world travellers who’ve experienced many cultural delicacies (just read their blog!) and share their honest and entertaining insights on their food adventures! These two are exemplary foodies – wonderful, charming and very down to earth. I’m very privileged to be featuring husband and wife team Gary and Taya Ng of Eating in Vancouver!
