Meg van Huygen has been writing for The Stranger for half of her damn life, usually about food or local history. She was born on the Hill, grew up on Queen Anne, went to school in the CD, and presently haunts the U District and Ballard most of the time. She dropped out of both Nova and Cornish. Her work has also appeared in Eater Seattle, Curbed Seattle, Seattle Weekly, Atlas Obscura, Mental Floss, and lots of other places. She fucking loves khinkali (see T-shirt).
