Redonkian Spotlight: Sarah

Hello there! I’m Sarah, it’s nice to meet you! I’m a Senior Product UX/UI Designer and the self-proclaimed official lunch photographer at Redonk. I’m a foodie! I love cooking and trying out new restaurants. You’ll always see new food pictures on my Instagram from my weekend adventures or recipe explorations but when I’m not doing that, you can find me hanging out with family, listening to new music, or playing video games.

Here’s a little bit more about me:

Favorite beer or wine? My alcohol tolerance is in the negatives, so I don’t drink any. I’m basically so allergic that even smelling alcohol makes my cheeks turn red. I’m the one that usually asks for water when we go out to eat or maybe I’ll order a Shirley Temple if I’m feeling fancy.

Favorite vacation spot? I love anywhere that has great views and great food. I love going to coastal destinations because the weather, seafood, and produce are always the best, but I also love the bustling city because you can always find hidden gems with the best food!

Best TV show of all time? This is such a hard question because I have a few shows in rotation that I’ve watched more than once. I would say the top two I’ve watched repeatedly are White Collar and Gossip Girl. I’ve watched them at least 12 times each. I might be a little bit obsessed.

Favorite movie? The Devil Wears Prada for sure. When I was invited to go see this movie in middle school, I didn’t know anything about it except the title and I thought it was a horror movie going in. I’m so glad it wasn’t because it’s still my favorite movie after all these years. I already loved Anne Hathaway from the Princess Diaries movies and the combination of her and powerhouse actress Meryl Streep was amazing. I also have a soft spot for anything Stanley Tucci is in.

I need a restaurant recommendation, where should I go? Oh gosh, I have A LOT. Just tell me what type of cuisine you’re looking for and I can give you photos and reviews of the places I’ve been. I always take photos whenever I go out to eat and they’re all sorted in my personal restaurant encyclopedia folder on my computer!

You’ve committed a serious crime like putting dirty dishes in the sink and are sentenced to death. What would your last meal be? This is totally not a fair question because I love so many different types of food and the weather plays a big part in what I want to eat that day. If I really had to narrow it down to just two things, I would choose fresh sashimi from the Tsukiji fish market in Japan or my mom’s homemade pho.

If you could have dinner with 3 people, living or dead, who would you dine with? I would love to have dinner with Betty White, a pioneer actress and comedian of early television, Gregg Popovich, dubbed the winningest coach in NBA history and coach of the San Antonio Spurs, and Stanley Tucci, actor, filmmaker and Italian cuisine enthusiast. This is definitely an odd trio but I have a feeling they’d probably get along pretty well! It’d be an interesting dinner for sure.

How do you drink your coffee? I love a good vanilla oat milk latte. I used to never drink coffee but one day my barista cousin brought me one and my life was changed forever. I still don’t drink coffee that often , maybe once or twice a month, but when I do, it’s always going to be a vanilla oat milk latte.

If you could do one thing other than work for Redonk, what would it be? Seeing as how much I enjoy taking food photos and telling people about new restaurants, I would love to be a travel food blogger or maybe a restaurant critic! Anything that would involve me getting to travel to enjoy new food and restaurants.
