How about we… snack on the daikon salad with crispy baby sardines over Sapporo at Sake Bar Hagi.
How about we… Walk the Highline.
How about we… have dinner at an underground supper club led by a secret famous chef.
An awesome place I've visited:
A hot springs resort outside of Sapporo, Japan, during the Snow Festival. The outdoor baths had a view of the mountains and we could see snow gently falling while we soaked in the hot water.
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:

A food writer.
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
Constantly learning and discovering new things. Someone who's curious about the world.
