I absolutely adore San Francisco based vlogger, LGBT advocate and YouTube wannabe Scottie Milagro. His YouTube channel has close to 75 uploads that are beaming with fun and informative stuff. What really makes these videos so great is Scottie’s charm, sincerity and simply magnetic energy on screen. In his latest post he shares the exciting news of his recent engagement. I suggest you watch a couple of his other videos first so that you can really understand how hopelessly in-love he is. The engagement video is unlike his others as it allows viewers to see an intimate view of Scottie – flustered and floating high with emotion. He makes it absolutely impossible to not be fully committed to attending this wedding.
Scottie answers my foodie questionnaire here:
What is your favorite dessert?
I come from a big Spanish family so I have a huge soft spot for flan. It doesn’t even have to be fancy. Goya makes one that comes in a little cardboard box. Some of my best childhood memories include pouring that little box of powdered flan into a saucepan and watching it become sweet, sugary goodness.
What restaurant would you call your home?
I regret not discovering Pesce earlier, even though it’s right in my own neighborhood. It’s such a shame that another great restaurant in that building is closing its doors (remember brunch at 2223? Delicious!). Their braised octopus is my go to and it will be sorely missed. If I’m in LA, you’re guaranteed to find me at Osteria La Buca. Unpretentious, mouthwatering Italian. I almost always order the special.
What is the strangest or most inspiring thing you’ve ever eaten?
On a volunteer trip to Belize I once ate a fistful of termites. Like, literally stuck my hand into a termite nest in a tree and licked them off like a lollypop. They tasted like minty carrots if you could image that flavor combination.
What was your favorite breakfast cereal as a kid?
Lucky Charms, but just the marshmallows. I used to dump the whole box in a large mixing bowl, eat all the marshmallows in one sitting, then pour the rest of the cereal back into the box.
What is your favorite food to pig-out on after the club?
If Starbelly is still open, my tipsy cravings lead me straight to their chicken liver pâté. I realize this is a very bougie pig out food, but I can’t resist! It’s too good!
