  • Fia RaboyFia Raboy

    is an OC resident. But this SD born-and-raised little woman, known as 5-Foot Frenzy or 5’ Foodie, never hesitates to travel back to her hometown to see friends and family on a monthly basis—at times biweekly. In addition to eating, blogging, and taking food photography, you can catch her flying out of state once in a while, drawing cartoon characters, dancing for Zumba, being a proud science nerd, and—like a stereotypical Filipino—singing through a karaoke mic. On a serious note, she is pursuing to be a dental hygienist to not only clean teeth, but educate her future patients to cut back on sweets, and to maintain the pearly whites in order to enjoyably bite on that juicy steak. She might be a shorty and be oftentimes shy, but she may not be timid at all once you see her voracious appetite! Facebook | Twitter

  • Gary RiceGary Rice

    graduated from California State University San Marcos with a degree in Literature & Writing Studies. He’s a lifelong foodie, enjoys traveling, and aspires to one day live in New York City and write a book that documents the rich history of its plethora of steakhouses. When not seated at a table indulging in culinary constructions of bovine, swine or fowl flesh, he can typically be found running along Harbor Island, training for an upcoming marathon, reading, sipping on martinis, or voyeuristically lusting after the latest batch of cupcakes or doughnuts coming out of the ovens at his local neighborhood haunts. Besides having a voracious sweet tooth, he also is partial to a variety of organ meats, particularly duck liver, in spite of its recent ban. As such, it’s apropos that he worships the work and brilliance of chefs Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo (aka. the “carniwhores”) who do the most audacious, amazing things with meat at their restaurant, Animal, in Los Angeles.

  • Lindsay N. Lauters

    grew up on the "weird stuff" her restauranteur father delighted in sharing with her.

She moved from San Francisco to San Diego in 2001, and has been overjoyed to observe San Diego food culture growing in leaps and bounds. Today, Lindsay is a professional game tester and freelance writer who enjoys cooking, traveling, and (of course) playing video games. She spends much of her time at craft breweries, food trucks, and hole-in-the-wall gems, and she can't wait to share these culinary adventures with you! Twitter
