Just your typical Vancouverite who loves good food! I am not a professional food critic, and by no means claim to be one. I have always loved trying new restaurants and taking pictures of food, so after years of bombarding my Instagram feed with food pictures, I created an Instagram account dedicated solely to my food pictures (@bitesofvancouver). I truly appreciate when food is presented nicely- I consider thoughtful food plating a work of art! On my blog/Instagram, I only post about food that I like. This approach may surprise some people, but I believe in spreading the positive, and don't yet feel that it's my place, or my personality to complain or post negative reviews. I know that everyone is entitled to their own opinions and can voice them, but this is how I am choosing to use my voice. This means that if I've posted it, I would recommend it! If I haven't posted it about a restaurant, either I haven't been there, or didn't think it was that great. I currently work full time in a dental office and have recently gone back to school for Business Management. My life is busy, but I truly enjoy blogging and will try to do so as much as possible!
