Q | What’s your favorite dish on the menu?
A | The Hot Stone Bi-bim-bob is my favorite! The egg on top seals the deal. It’s so Instagram-worthy!
 
Q | Do you have the insider scoop on any secret menu items since this is one of your favorite restaurants?
A | Hot tea is free, just like water! Another tip – the sushi is amazing. Other local places do it well, but Poong Mei’s sushi is definitely a hidden gem!
 
Q | Why did you start @amytellmewhere, your awesome foodie Instagram account?
A | I’m from a small business family, so I understand the importance of word-of-mouth marketing. I love showing love to local restaurants ever since I moved here from southern California. Columbus has so much to offer! I’m also currently a student at Ohio State and I’m always impressed by Poong Mei’s prices – super student budget-friendly!
 
Q | What’s next for @amytellmewhere? Will you stick around Columbus after you graduate?
A | I have no idea! If I stay, I’ll definitely keep it going. If I move elsewhere, I want to keep the account Columbus-focused, so I’d consider having someone else run it.
