Meet the Author

Ricky Ly is the food writer for Tasty Chomps!(http://tastychomps.com), a food and restaurant website dedicated to finding culinary adventures throughout Orlando as well as journeys and foodie discoveries overseas. Born and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida, his passion for food and adventures began very early on, instilled by his Vietnamese and Chinese immigrant parents. His first memories were of pork belly and hard boiled egg dishes in the late afternoons and steaming dim sum plates of sweet and slurpy shrimp rice paste and dumplings on Saturday mornings. In 2003, he moved away to attend the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida where, among other things, he graduated with a bachelor's degree in civil engineering and wrote for the university's student newspaper, the Central Florida Future. He currently resides in Orlando, Florida working by day as a civil engineer and writing by night as he continues his lifelong quest to find great eats in all sorts of nooks and crannies of the world.TastyChomps.com recently received awards from the Orlando Sentinel and is featured on Zagat's Fork and Tell.
