The Atlantic Solutions organization is not shy about the fact that we love food. Really, we love it. We just love it. The person who loves it the most? Our esteemed leader, the president of our firm, DK.
We stole a few minutes from his busy schedule to ask him some very pressing questions about his passion for food. Enjoy…
On the thing we’d be most surprised to learn about him.
Before we realized that this interview would be all about food, we actually learned something truly hilarious about this entrepreneur. “I don’t like touching food with my hands,” he confessed. Say what? Don’t worry, we followed up to get the details on this. DK can’t tolerate the feeling of greasy fingers — so much so that he uses excessive amounts of napkins to prevent the travesty. The Atlantic Solutions team enjoys a good laugh on a weekly basis when their president wraps his chicken wings, pizza, burger, or sandwich in a napkin. “Every so often I’ll grab a french fry if I’m in a rush, but then I’ll quickly go wash my hands” he shared.
On the food he can’t stand.
Our original question was as to whether there was a food that he couldn’t be paid to eat; but, we quickly found out that DK is a major foodie, and there was really no such thing. We did discover, however, that the ‘corner’ Chinese restaurant would be his least desired form of cuisine. He told us, “If I eat at a Chinese restaurant it needs to be authentic!” He continued, “I love food from all different cultures. I’m in Rhode Island visiting our branch office right now and I always look forward to the chicken at the local Jamaican restaurant here.”
We also learned that DK lives for sushi. In fact, it’s a Friday night tradition in his household. His favorite is the salmon avocado roll. #getinmybelly
On the weirdest thing he’s ever eaten.
Upon discovering that few things would perturb the palate of this food lover, we had to ask this question. Fair warning, if you’re a vegetarian, you might want to skip this question! DK shared, “Iguana is a delicacy in Honduras, where I grew up.” “I’ve also eaten ocean turtles… so tasty,” he added. He’s reportedly yet to find these delicacies in Somerset, NJ, but he’s discovered them in Miami and New Orleans. We ended this mouth-watering conversation by hearing about an interesting appetizer that DK has yet to forget: rattle snake served in tartar sauce, which he tried at a restaurant in Arizona. “It’s like popcorn chicken, I lovvvvveedddd it,” he raved! #nomnom
