Welcome to City Foodsters, where you can find insights into fascinating eateries around the world from Grace and Jason. We’re both San Francisco Bay Area natives who met at the end of 2011 and food is one common passion that unites us. Some of our favorite nights out include conversing over food at unique and high-rated restaurants, hole in the walls, diners, pubs, and lounges. All posts are reflective of our own opinions and experiences; please give us feedback under Comments. Our latest camera gear consists of a Canon 6D, Sony a7r II, and Leica Q.

UCSF ’16 Dentistry. Hello world! My name is Grace and I love indulging in sweet treats and desserts. Back in the corner of my mouth is a huge sweet tooth; ironic because I’m studying to become a dentist. Nevertheless, what you should know is that if you brush and floss everyday, you can easily keep your cavities at bay. I hope to travel and explore every nook and cranny of the world (as of right now, I’m only limited to the Golden State) to discover the best of best delectable and eclectic types of foods for my thirsting palate. I’ll try my best to keep the food shots looking as fresh and tasty as possible with the help of some photoshop. As an amateur photographer, I’m always learning and I definitely welcome any comments and tips for better photo compositions or settings. Thanks for reading!

Jason Wang
UC Berkeley ’09 from the Haas School of Business. Bay Area native. One of my biggest passions is tech; I’ve worked for Microsoft and Google and started my own companies, 815 ProductionMunch On Me (acquired in May 2012), and Caviar (acquired in Aug 2014). In the Summer of 2011, I was fortunate enough to go through Y Combinator and have been in the entrepreneurial scene since. Food is always on my mind and I take eating very seriously. Throughout the years, I have dined out 95% of the time (nearly every lunch and dinner), ranging from hole in the walls  to Michelin star restaurants. During the time, I have met many great and inspirational people while enjoying the myriad of delicacies the world has to offer. Food is inherently social; it’s the one activity you can count on having a good time. I always look forward to my next food, beverage, and dessert adventure.
