Mayor Daily's "Off Da Bone" food blog is proud to introduce its first featured female contributor, MARmiles. Mar is a Glenview native, UCLA grad, and current Santa Monica resident. As our West Coast contributor, Mar is a key piece Off Da Bone's long-term quest to find the best finger food in America.
As a avid restaurant googler, foodie blog subscriber, meal instagrammer, "never eat at the same place twice" believer, and pronounced explorer of the undiscovered (or overly discovered), I knew my obsession had reached new heights once I had made visits to 3 different coffee houses within one hour and 2.5 miles from my home one Saturday morning after stumbling upon orange, thyme & cardamom lattes, and finding the boldest Pirates Chai. It's become an expensive and gluttonous habit, yet I have discovered some of the most unique offerings of a city, and have experienced some of the greatest hidden culinary delights wherever I may find myself. I further get to boast my opinions on any given place since there often is a 80% chance I have "been there once."
As a Chicago native and now an Angeleno of 6 years, I'm still on a quest to uncover the hidden gems of my local surroundings, and on a broader exploration to discover the culinary highlights in cities across the world. As one of my favorite quotes by Castaneda reads, "...An average man cares that things are either true or false, but a warrior doesn't," I have thrown my own twist into believing that "A true culinary warrior doesn't look for cuisine that is good or bad, a culinary warrior, is there for the experience." Twende tule!
When Mar isn't instagramming her meals or searching the Tasting Table or EATER, you will find her submerged in the land of Asset Management and winning triathlons in Los Angeles. She will post regularly on Thursdays just in time for you to plan that long overdue cali vacay.
