Kiki Aranita: Poi Dog Philly Owner


Read The Native Influence Full Q&A

What do you love most about Your City? The tight-knit community of chefs and restaurateurs. There’s so much collaboration between us on projects and events.

What are you doing at 10:00 AM – Weeding through catering requests and emails at my desk in the basement office of Poi Dog. I handwrite a to-do list every morning in my most beautiful penmanship and then work through it.

Where do you enjoy getting lost? Chinese wet markets, where you can buy cotton underwear, a bunny rabbit and salted duck eggs from adjacent stalls.
