Check Out Jordache Yuen’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jordache Yuen.  

Hi Jordache, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
To give a little background, I’ve always loved food since I was a kid. To me, food means more than just something you ingest. Food can be used as
a way for you to communicate with people, share stories, and learn about different cultures and traditions through their cuisine.

In the past few years, I’ve documented food ideas, mini-cooking shows, mukbangs, food reviews, and new restaurants on my personal social media platforms.

Fast forward to the present day, I moved to Utah a little over a year ago and my hobby is eating food and trying new restaurants. So, with the support of my friends, I decided to start up a food blog that gives me more of a reason to not only try new cuisine, it also allows me to support and showcase small businesses.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
So far so good. I have no complaints on what I’m doing. It’s a hobby, and it’s been pretty smooth so far.

Maybe something that I have to get used to is filming every meal and have the people I’m eating with understand that I’ll be taking pictures and videos of the food as well.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
My work is solely food orientated:

On my social media stories, I like to review snacks, drinks, frozen meals, and basically anything you can get from a grocery store.

On my post and reels, I like to review and shout out new restaurants, dessert places, and any events I go to that involve food.

On my reels, every so often I post meal prep meals or recipe ideas.

I’m most proud of having an employee from a bakery I’ve reviewed recognize me from my reel. I wasn’t expecting them to see the video or recognize me.

What sets me apart from others would be me not overreacting to everything and the lack of overediting of my reels; I want to be real and do a true food review.

Aside from my food blog/food review, I’m a; full-time engineer, competitive powerlifter, part-time fitness coach, graduate student, and part-time podcaster. I like to keep myself busy and keep things interesting!

We’d love to hear about any fond memories you have from when you were growing up.
Food haha.

There’s no one particular one fond memory I can remember when I was growing up. I did grow up in a family oriented household, and one tradition we’ve always done was to eat dinner together. Family-style dinners, where we have multiple dishes that is share amongst each other. We used dinner as a time to relax and keep up with each other. Taking that tradition and bringing it to Utah where I’m thousands of miles from friends and family has allowed me to meet new people and create strong bonds.
