Known for her amazing food and wine pics, Manda B is our November Rock Star of the Month! She shares her favorite spots around the world, as well as her upcoming travel plans.
1. Where in the world can we find you traveling to next?
Definitely Asia, I was born and raised there, and I haven’t been back for a few years. Thailand, Cambodia, South Korea, and Vietnam are in 2014 traveling plan.
2. What has been your favorite trip and why?
One of my favorite trips was in Tokyo, Japan. I’m obsessed with the culture, the language, the wonderful food, Tsukiji Market for the freshest sushi, and how well the country has been in the last 30 years. Not to mention, Japan now has more Michelin Star restaurants than France. Imagine that. Japan got on top of the economic world in such a short time; it’s simply amazing. Every time I come back to Japan, I always learn a lot more, and it just gets better each time.
3. What are your favorite spots in the Bay Area?
It’s hard to answer this one, because there are just so many nice spots in the Bay Area. To pinpoint just one spot, it’s just unfair We’re so rich and diverse in culture, food, and sports. I think I’m just very lucky to reside in the Bay Area.
4. What is your dream destination and why?
I’ve never been to Bordeaux, France and I’ve always dreamed of it, especially to be Somm like myself. It’s just a beautiful place. The best wines are made there, the food, the culture… what’s not to love? Some day I will visit. Maybe after my Asia trip
